K1 Attack at PistonHeads / Autosport Racing Car Show


Standing out amongst the display cars in the PistonHeads section of the Autosport Racing Car Show, K1’s Attack drew all the crowds. Here was a car no-one could identify, and countless visitors bombarded the car’s minder with pertinent questions. Firstly, is it a show car: well yes, except that there are around 50 Attacks in circulation. How come we’ve never seen any? It’s Slovakian, and they don’t make right hand drive versions for the UK. Is it a kit car? K1 started out building them as kits, but they evolved into fully fledged road ready rampagers. But this one’s RHD? It’s a total rebuild by enthusiast and owner Oliver Ashley, horizontally flipping the drivers controls.

Lotus unveiled their Cup racer, based on the Evora at the Autosport Racing Car show in Birmingham on Thursday. Aimed at the various one make and endurance series, the GT4 spec Cup car sports a 4 litre V6 race engine good for 400PS plus six speed sequential paddle shift dog gearbox. 200kg lighter than the production car it’s gonna be quick! Here it is taking pride of place on the Lotus stand, deftly accompanied by a yellow Lotus Eleven2 with reversed colour scheme: ie green stripe, yellow body vs Evora’s green body, yellow stripe. Cup races will be UK only for 2010, extending Europe wide in 2011.
