The above 0 to 60 Mph and quarter mile times have been sourced from a combination of public publications, private testimonials and individual testing. Please keep in mind that there are a multitude of real world factors that can skew these results, including but not limited to: driver ability, pavement quality, tire quality, elevation, temperature, humidity at the testing site, and the quality of the recording device. Based on this, owners should expect their own vehicles to perform within a general acceptable range of these values.

 

Lotus History:

Founded in 1952 in an old stable located at Hornsey, North London, Lotus has been a dedicated race car manufacturer for the past 60-years. For the first 25-years of its existence the company focused on selling vehicles aimed at amateur and semi-pro racers. Using a number of engines ranging from Renault to Ford, Lotus made a name for itself based on their excellent driving dynamics. As the brand entered the 1980’s several new models were introduced to bridge the racing and commercial consumer gap. The new models featured modern accessories and were far more reasonable to drive.

1982 saw a significant investment by Toyota in Lotus, in which the larger brand was able to use Lotus technology in its own sports cars. However, after a string of legal troubles the remaining British ownership sought to sell to a major manufacturer. GM stepped in and purchased Lotus in 1983, forcing out Toyota. As the 90’s rolled by though, the company saw itself change hands a number of more times until landing with Proton in 1996.

Like all small scale purpose built factory racers, from a sports car perspective all Lotus’ offer impeccable driving experiences. Unlike most super car manufacturers though, Lotus’ performance does not hinge on extreme engine output. On the contrary, their vehicles rely on light weight high strength structures that maximize their cutting edge suspensions. Many people feel that driving a Lotus is as close as one can get to legally driving a race car.
