    I think it is better to start a standalone thread on this one now instead of getting lost in the What are working on thread :)

    Like with the Audi this car again is not exactly what it appears like from the outside. Looking at it you would think "yeah, a widened Esprit", but this actually a Group-C chassis that an ex-Tiga employee bought and draped in Esprit like bodywork. I don't know if there's actually any real Lotus part in the whole car. More info on the car can be found in these two articles:

    (http://www.speedhunters.com/2013/07/reinventing-an-icon-krbs-829whp-lotus-lives/)
    (http://www.speedhunters.com/2013/02/krbs-esprit-gets-some-serious-firepower/)

    Contrary to the KRB Audi which ran a VW-Audi mashup engine, this "Lotus" now is pure Audi, 4.2 litre V8 from the old S8 (not the later FSI variant), aspirated with a rather large Comp turbo and bolted to the old Group-C drivetrain.

    Well I have been modelling and working on the physics this for a while already, @IMrIMike has started with custom sound some time ago (btw, update? :whistling:). I have permission and support by the real KRB Trading Team, and have been send a little data already for the drivetrain.

    No idea about a Release date, maybe summer 2019? Dunno

    If anyone were up to help me with the physics, it may be sooner..

    Not really, I think internals were almost done anyway, turbo needs adjustments but that´s for later versions.

    just using HSV noise on the map texture has a nice effect

    btw does anyone know any cool Lotus liveries I could replicate on this car?
