Corgi presents the Lotus collection, a series of die-cast 1:43 scale detailed model cars. Each model carries an authentic Lotus livery and comes complete with a collector card detailing information about the car modelled. The model is presented in a plastic case of which it can be removed for display.
This series of models includes Lotus road cars and motorsport, including Lotus Formula One. For over sixty years, British car manufacturer Lotus has been designing and building sports and racing cars. The first Lotus car was built in 1948 by Colin Chapman in North London and soon afterwards Lotus was competing very successfully in some of the greatest motorsport championships in the world, including Formula One and Le Mans.
Today the Lotus headquarters is based on a former RAF World War Two airfield in Norfolk, it is here where they currently design, test and build their current models. Throughout the Lotus history the manufacturing and design has always been built on producing light-weight cars with fine handling, creating some of the finest sports cars that are available today.
The Evora GT4 was developed from the highly acclaimed Lotus Evora sports car, designed to give drivers a competitive racing package straight 'out of the box'. Developed by Lotus Racing, the Evora GT4 features world class chassis, steering and brakes resulting in exceptional handling. In January 2012 Lotus Sport UK signed Indian driver Sailesh Bolisetti. Sailesh began racing in 2007 and now partners Phil Glew who has been racing in the GT4 series for Lotus since 2011.
