Also available as an added bonus is the Heritage Tour. Including a full Lotus Factory Tour to see the latest models in production on the build line, after enjoying a close up look at our modern facility where every Lotus car has been hand built since 1966, we take you across the road to Classic Team Lotus to see where it all began! Still housed in the original garages and owned by Chapman family, Classic Team Lotus invites you to meet it's collection of the most historically significant race cars from Formula 1. The Team Lotus mechanics that supported World Champions Jim Clark, Graham Hill, Emerson Fittipaldi, Mario Andretti, Nigel Mansell and Ayrton Senna continue to care for the multiple World Championship winning Lotus Formula One cars that won 77 Grand Prix.

Classic Team Lotus is pleased to offer the opportunity for a privileged insight behind the historic scenes of the Team Lotus legend.
