Listen: Tanner, Lotus, Wynn discussed on The Smoking Tire
"I think we've done it a different way. What you can see on our car as you you can save the complete volume as we would say the first of all and then you see these limousine call through it. I wanna find a <hes> the full rear the you know yeah <hes> last fast the quila view the rayvey yeah real real crazy you get everything. Can you get the stance car with a lot of muscle the cabin hong kah dan between the whales and then you get the <hes> the exit vents from the tunnels. Yeah you can really see weekday clear on through this so okay so where how much downforce does this produce. Do we know yet. Yeah we night but win. What's <hes> we're not declaring yet. Been must be a pretty absurd amount right eighths. <hes> i've worked on the little 'cause on i won't let what comes with some racing cows and nights seemingly quite shocking lee high but where being <hes> reserved at the moment because we're only just starting to run real a prototype so we've done a huge amount shifty and analysis work generally but until we run real vehicles on the bits a bit cautious we don't and we promise and under deliver but i think we've got so much margin on the car things going to be quite quite exciting the first company that actually does the drive upside-down thing so demonstrate town you the first one to do it. Wynn been hearing that shit since i was a kid i volunteering no but but like no but you know what tanner would be all about that. You know what i mean. Give tanner like five jesus. I'll drive upside down. He'd be about that no so this is like so. This is really exciting. Are you guys gonna make a hundred and thirty of these hundred and thirty of them yeah and that's because the cost called the tight one thirty internally. All latest cars have a tight member and what is. Can i ask happening in this window or is this a weird reflection that i'm just missing zahra actual window in the bonnet in the front into something we're looking at now. That's just <hes> it's a solid surface in terms of <hes> the silver area but at the back again eighths a gap between the trailing edge of the hood and <music> ducks the three there. It's a wonky image eight eight smooth the airflow over the cabin you can imagine as well we had lots of <hes> fun with referencing fast jets and things when we were designing that seek out little wing full motions and things going on in a company like lotus were it's such commitment to analog cars for so long long long past most others have not only begun building crossovers and shit but like saying like like manuals get out of it. You know what i mean like you guys. You guys are sticking with this. One and you know people like me. Just love that so what happens when <hes> say oh here we go we are. We're doing a two thousand horsepower. Thirty six hundred pound electric piper car is the team. Happy is the team scratching their heads. Is the team going well. This is the beginning of the end or or you know or or is it going well. At least he didn't ask us to do a two liter crossover. You know what i mean dot we were. We were really excited on its <hes> as i say you know we do we day sports cars are day job but a high car as sort of a once in a lifetime job and i think the opportunity of designing around electric powertrains really exciting <hes> design wise it frees us up in certain areas because you can place the battery in the mighties inexpensive dual motor vehicle right is that my realized to say actually you're. You're getting the omega all-wheel-drive a so. We'll address so we go full. Might we go full nice's. You can drive the wheels on each wheel so you so we so we can talk veteran central infinite torque factoring. That's some crazy shit. Have you messed around with like the new n._s. Ex that has that i haven't personally but i'm sure i'll go. I said you really should try and have a go because."
