Lotus Exige with a Turbo K24 inline-four

This Lotus Exige is piloted by Dawie Joubert in hill climb racing in South Africa. Dawie replaced the factory engine with a turbocharged Honda K24 inline-four. After setting the record the team turned the boost up to 750+ horsepower which was a little too much. The engine failed and the 800 kg (1,763 lb) race car was done for the day.
