Re: Barrs Leaks?
VX 220's are very well balanced and actually produce 10kg of downforce (at the front and rear axle) at high-speed (130mph) due to the horizontally mounted radiator, the rear diffuser and integrated lip spoiler. The flat floor merely tidies up the flow under the car so as not to increase drag. Note that a normal car like our 155s tend to produce 50kg of LIFT at high speeds. Unfortunately this little car outclasses us by miles but then again it is designed, developed and built by Lotus!
I would be very surprised if you managed to keep up around the 'Ring; if it is a VX220 Turbo it will smoke you (0 to 60 in under 5 sec) however it's top speed is around 140mph so you should keep up on the Autobahn no problem!
