This series of models includes Lotus road cars and motorsport, including Lotus Formula One. For over sixty years, British car manufacturer Lotus has been designing and building sports and racing cars. The first Lotus car was built in 1948 by Colin Chapman in North London and soon afterwards Lotus was competing very successfully in some of the greatest motorsport championships in the world, including Formula One and Le Mans.
Today the Lotus headquarters is based on a former RAF World War Two airfield in Norfolk, it is here where they currently design, test and build their current models. Throughout the Lotus history the manufacturing and design has always been built on producing light-weight cars with fine handling, creating some of the finest sports cars that are available today.
On the 28th January 2013 the Lotus F1™ Team became the first team to unveil their 2013 car, at a launch event that took place at the team’s headquarters at Enstone. The livery of the car revealed the classic Lotus black and gold colour scheme together with more flashes of red than the 2012 car. The main sponsors for the team are Lotus, CLEAR, Rexona, Microsoft Dynamics, Avanade, Total, Genii Business Exchange, Pirelli, Japan Rags and engine provider Renault. The first time the new E21 car took to a track was at the Jerez circuit in Spain on the 5th February 2013.
