Welcome to Hethel, the home of Lotus

When you visit our manufacturing facility at Hethel, Norfolk UK, you'll explore the epicentre of Lotus life, where our world class, high performance sports cars are all individually hand built.

Every Monday here at Lotus we open our famous factory doors to the public, to enjoy a guided tour around our production facility. The Lotus Factory Tour starts with engine and body prep and follows the entire build process through to the finished car. See just how every single Lotus is - Handmade in Hethel.
