The new and improved Lotus Evora 400

Lotus, builders of some of the most iconic and sublime cars of all times finds itself, yet again, approaching dire financial straights. It needs a hit, a palpable hit, and it has chosen to update, up-rate and subtly alter its Evora sportscar for even more bang throughout the performance envelope. How you can squeeze more go, stop and turn out of a car as capable as the already impressive Evora is a hard question to answer, but Lotus answered it, and it seems to have done so most definitively.  Read More

HALOsonic constantly adapts to the changes in vibrations coming from the tires against the...

As automakers attempt to make vehicles more energy-efficient, they're increasingly turning to lighter building materials. While doing so may indeed result in lightweight cars, these materials generally lack the sound-damping qualities of their heavier counterparts. That's why Harman and Lotus Engineering have developed the HALOsonic system, which cancels out road noise by making noise of its own.  Read More

Wearing one of the most revered names in motorsport, the Lotus C-01 certainly looks the pa...

Lotus Motorcycles has released the first images of its new lightweight C-01 superbike, produced by a collaboration of motorsport veterans led by Dr Colin Kolles of Kodewa, with support from the Holzer Group, all under license from Group Lotus plc. The bodywork has been crafted by Daniel Simon while the bike's geometry and construction is the work of Holzer, a company that has had a hand in designing several Moto One and Moto Two world championship motorcycles, not to mention F1 and LMP2 cars. So apart from the name that carries so much gravitas, the team behind it comes with serious credibility too. The 180 kg Lotus C-01 is powered by a 200 hp, 75 degree v-twin Rotax motor similar to that used in the KTM RC8R superbike.  Read More
