”Simplify, then add lightness”. That is the famous quote attributed to Lotus founder Colin Chapman as he began designing those first Lotus models. Today, the Lotus team is still made up of engineers who truly love to drive, and they make sure that every Lotus model delivers stellar handling that is perfect for both the road and the track.

The Benefits of Lightness

The Lotus brand has been defined by lightweight sports cars for its entire existence, and the core philosophy is still in tact to this day. Another brilliant Chapman quote, “Adding power makes you faster on the straights; subtracting weight makes you faster everywhere”, defines how the company builds cars. Lower weight means faster acceleration, improved stopping capability, and higher corner speeds, meaning that no matter where you are or what you’re doing on the road, a lightweight Lotus model will get you there faster.

The classic Lotus Elise is perhaps the finest example of Lotus excellence, combining a powerful V6 engine with a lightweight, two-seat roadster configuration and rear-wheel drive for the ultimate in exuberant driving fun. It was followed up by the sleek and sporty Evora, which added aerodynamic downforce and additional power to the equation, improving both straight-line speed and cornering ability.
