Hello from Maidstone - see you at Brands?


Recommended Posts

I just joined this forum - greetings to all of you, especially those in the South East. I'll be at Brands with my Exige 270e Tri-Fuel on Saturday, hoping to share a great day with other Lotus fans - and to say Hi to the guys at Maidstone Sports Cars and Lotus Silverstone, who have been so helpful to me on my ownership journey.

all the best!

 

Andrew

Thanks for the welcome, Pits - I'll try to park at the exhibition area on the way from the entrance to the Pitlane grandstand, and I'll be there over lunch just chatting with whomsoever turns up.

My exige was built by lotus engineering in 2008, with a fuel system that runs on petrol, ethanol, methanol or any combination of them.  On methanol, the power output is 270hp, which makes it the most powerful exige s2 that lotus produced... But of course, the main story is that recovered CO2 could be turned into methanol fairly easily, making the car carbon-neutral... In theory. In practice, it's just a terrific drive with a party piece that will really come into its own if the uk bans petrol and diesel in 2040!  If you google "exige 270e" you'll see some of it's history, as well as more technical info on how it works. I'll try to park it somewhere obvious at the Lotus Festival on Saturday... If people want to see or hear more, I'll be happy to oblige!
