Form through function
Inspired by the outstanding aerodynamics and sculpted bodywork of the Lotus Evija, the LOTUS AEROAD is as striking as the car itself.
The 2021 Goodwood Festival of Speed Central Feature celebrates the peerless sporting and technical achievements of Lotus Cars. Inspired by Lotus founder Colin Chapman's philosophy of "simplify, then add lightness", it employs the engineering concept of Tensegrity - a structural principle which creates exceptionally strong and rigid structures for their mass. Its shape evokes the rooster tail air flow analysis of the new Lotus Evija, and it features the longest cantilever of its kind in the world. The impression is of a structure made more from air than actual material. Colin Chapman would have approved."
