I think they are playing game with us anyway about the engine...

They will like to get as much attension as possible before they even put it in production.

I think they even now what engine they gona use in 2004 and that engine is might not even in production yet.

All right, all right.... I've sat on this secret long enough. It so happens that with my special inside contacts at Lotus, I got a chance to see the engine and was allowed to make this picture.

All the above posts are total bollocks! :lol:

MY confidential source at Lotus (Gladys the tea lady), photographed this secret blueprint that Mike Kimberley had foolishly left lying on his desk :rolleyes:

As you can see, its not BMW , its BRM! :P

It must have been the German wording on the document that lead to the other obviously totally wrong rumours :lol:
