A special edition was produced with Lotus. It could probably even outrun the M5. I have a videoclip of it, when it outruns a swedish police Saab 9000 turbo. (Those are even modified for the police.) The copcar doesn't have a chance in hell. If someone are interested, send me a mail, or give me a note and I can try to upload it somewhere.
