LoveFab’s Enviate v2.0 Update

LoveFab's Enviate v2.0 Twin-turbo LQ9 V8 Pikes Peak race car

When we last wrote about LoveFab’s Enviate v2.0 project it was going through shakedown testing at the track. Since then testing has completed and the full carbon fiber body has been installed. The total weight of the car comes in at 2,098 lbs. Considering the lightweight hypercar is powered by a twin-turbo 6.0 L LQ9 V8 capable of 770 horsepower and 660 lb-ft of torque should produce some great numbers at Pikes Peak.

  1. 770HP on this car? 2WD? = ZERO traction. Has pikes peak been paved? If it has then woohoo… If not and this car is intended to run on dirt… well, that will be interesting… Very cool none the less.

  2. what i dont understand is why they cant get a 6.0 v8 twin turbo to make at least 900hp to get a 1:1 power to weight ratio keeping in mind the altitude mitigates power

    1. Probably for the sake of reliability and traction. The aero will help but rwd with 900hp would be OBSCENELY difficult to keep on the road.
