The Lotus adventure started in 1959 when Colin Chapman built the first car using unit fiberglass construction: the Lotus Elite. The idea was to reduce weight, which would be one of the brand’s key characteristics for all the following models. Another characteristic of Lotus vehicles was their great handling abilities, which would be praised in each model, from the popular Lotus Elan to the sporty mid-engine Esprit. You probably noticed that all of Lotus model names start with the letter E and the tradition is still going. Lotus always produced their models in small numbers, using a very rigorous construction plan for each unit. The manufacturer has been a leader in innovation within the auto industry, regularly providing consulting to other carmakers for fiberglass construction and engine design.
