Perfect track car :D

Max Right Lateral G's - 1.38
Max Left Lateral G's - 1.29

and wow, that's a lot of G for such a small car! I'm impressed... !

Very nice to read some impressions of a Seven from a "normal" (pretty big word uh?! ;)) guy! As expected, such a car can blow away anybody, even in the lower form of "tuning"!

Thanks a lot for sharing the experience and the pics are nice too :D
Bloody nice in orange actually!

Is it legal in US ? I thought it wasn't ... but it's good for you if it is because you experienced a different drive of your usual one :wink:
I also had a ride (not driving) in a Donkervoort (a sort of Lotus 7) S8 and the acceleration didn't impressed me either, it was nice but not OMG :| despite the 140 or 150 hp.

Nice write up.

Nice hi-res pics too.

I understand you were missing the power of your regular V8-sledgehammer, but your impressions of the directness and sense of being hooked up were great :good:

Plenty of emphasis on the figures - i would expect no less - and it's interesting to see the high Gs - it must be a lot to do with the much duscussed CR500s.

Looking forward to seeing your next review - sadly, its rather difficult for an 18yo over here to get test-drives etc.
