Fifth Gear spacer Lotus

Fifth Gear are also testing Lotus Engineering's tri-fuel powered Exige at AE Racing. The experimental vehicle shares a lot with its production siblings, but can run on petrol, ethanol or synthetically produced methanol. The genius of the methanol is that it is made from atmospheric CO2, allowing this fuel to be carbon neutral. Performance and fuelling tweaks over the standard Exige should push power to 270bhp.
