“Lotus is all about the driving dynamics, and you want the car to look agile and athletic. Another Lotus trait is aerodynamics, so on this car, we have an interesting way of managing air flow. We’re not the first to do it, but we’ve done it in an interesting way. Which is not just managing the air flow over the top surfaces of the car and underneath, but also through the car. If you look (at the front), it’s all completely open, so that allows the air to go into the wheel arch and evacuate at high velocity at the rear,” said Lotus Design Director Russell Carr.
