Lotus Exige LF1

Lotus is a brand with a huge history in the world of cars. The company has always raised standards to upper levels. The brand’s sixty years of history and innovation were the key of success on the road but on the track, too. At the present, Lotus is an expert in lightweight architecture and this allowed it to become a leader in green vehicle technology. The Lotus Exige LF1, the last of their productions, has been officially presented.

The Lotus Exige LF1 is inspired by the Exige S model of the same company. The vehicle has been manufactured to emphasize the carmaker’s 2014 season in Formula 1.
