The 10.000Rpm Lotus Elise with a V8 built from 2 Hayabusa motors...

Dan Michl´s Monster is as competitive and unique as ever in 2019

After checking the surprise from many after seeing the 450Hp/10.000Rpm Lotus Elise that finally beat Karl Schagerl and his Golf TFSi-R this year, nothing better than showing from the inside how how fast Dan Michl´s monster is and how it was the quickest Touring Car at Ilirska Bistrica 2019.

This is not a new Monster in European HillClimb Racing by any means, being the product of over 10 years of development and racing by Michl Motorsport. Using the Elise/Speedster chassis at its core, it is from that point on, a highly modified beast, with the most notable feature being the unique engine used.

A 2.8L Hartley V8 unit in Naturally Aspirated from capable of 450Hp/10.000Rpm. For those unaware, this V8 is built using 2 Hayabusa Engine and "fusing" them into a single unit. Of course it is way more complicated than that but in rough terms that is how this Dry-Sumped engine is built, and here it finds the perfect counterpart, in this mid-engined, 750Kg, carbon fibre bodied Monster that on 2019 is still as competitive as ever.
