Frank Profera has spent six years making his Lotus go faster, stop shorter, and corner harder. Matt Farah and DRIVE got the change to meet Frank and check out his latest creation.
Though it only has to move around 2,150lbs, Frank’s Lotus makes 680 wheel horsepower with a twin-charged 1.8 liter engine. These figures provide a better power-to-weight ratio than Mario Andretti’s Formula One Lotus and the world’s fastest production car, the Bugatti Veyron.
According to Frank, it’s an ongoing project that may never be finished, because of he has a never-ending obsession with speed.
