All Lotus cars are rightly regarded as being the benchmark for handling. Colin Chapman always believed that a driver wants feedback and control, instant response, precision and agility, the power to accelerate and to stop almost instantly. A Lotus gives the driver a stable and balanced yet agile and dynamic driving experience, with the ability to change direction and speed both predictably and as required. This means that the driver knows exactly how the car will respond to a particular action on the steering, throttle or brakes.
They can then drive more efficiently, needing only the right amount of input to get the required output. This is what driving a Lotus is all about. This is why everyone sums up driving a Lotus with one word: purity.
