I don’t really get why lotuses which are supposed to be extra light weight and hardcore, don’t really show much when it comes to lap times in real life. The 365hp M2 is a car with a large trunk, seats in the back that actually fit people, and is a fraction the price.

They lose power after 100kph. That's why the laptime is so slow. Or partly it's the driver's fault, especially at sport auto I've seen those cars not driven to their full potential.
For example, with a decent driver an Exige 430 can keep up with a McLaren 570S

It's suspension has more comfort settings. Exige is better suited for track.
And still, the driver didn't seriously push it, with 1:12 at hockenheim it should be faster at Nordschleife.

Had to re-add because there already was 3/2016 by fakekiller. If you something that overlaps, don't add double, just ping me and I will add.
