Lotus Exige with a Turbo K24 Inline-Four

Lotus Exige with a Turbo K24 inline-four

This Lotus Exige is piloted by Dawie Joubert in hill climb racing in South Africa. Dawie replaced the factory engine with a turbocharged Honda K24 inline-four. After setting the record the team turned the boost up to 750+ horsepower which was a little too much. The engine failed and the 800 kg (1,763 lb) race car was done for the day.

  1. Dawie still king of honda after all these years, watched him growing up piloting his 1st gen civic to 11.1 at ODI raceway 2003 and running 327km/h in his honda powered lotus over 800m. Truely a genius.
