Now that we know Lotus is competing in the 2010 F1 season, here’s a first look at their car getting wind tunnel tested. Unfortunately, the parts still “need to be built, complete with all machining, carbon fiber work and assembly.” Video after the break.

The Lotus will be powered by a Cosworth engine and an Xtrac transmission…the F1 racer’s been fitted with newly mandated skinnier front tires and a bigger gas tank and it’s just finished wind tunnel testing.
