The history of Lotus
Lotus was founded by UCL graduate, Colin Chapman, in 1952. The company’s first factory was based in old stables in London where they focused on the manufacture of sports and racing cars.
From the very beginning the brand’s focus was on speed, encouraging new Lotus owners to race their cars professionally.
The company has been through a lot since the 1950s; financial troubles, the unexpected death of the founder in 1982 and several changes in ownership, but throughout it all they have continued to design and develop sleek and speedy sports cars. As well as manufacturing for their own badge, Lotus also consulted on engineering for other car manufacturers including Vauxhall and Chevrolet.
Lotus’ involvement in racing has never wavered and they have designed and developed many cars for F1, today they are part of the Caterham F1 Team.
At the heart of it, Lotus is a car brand for the serious petrol-head. The brand manufactures sleek, sporty cars for people who are looking to impress. At the beginning the brand wasn’t considered reliable, well known for having issues with leaks and being badly built. However, this is changing, with newer models receiving a positive reception.
