Bringing Mostly Lotus Week to a close, The Redline talks to David McIntyre about the future of Lotus on the road, track and in the showroom.Read More
A Lotus Exige Sport 410 and a race track is an extremely hard proposition to turn down. When that race track is Mount Panorama, it’s impossible.Read More
Lotus’ new Evija factory hall is live and it’s where the final prototypes will be built ahead of first deliveries at the end of 2020. Yes, it’s an all-new Lotus, and they’re building it.Read More
I drive the Lotus Elise Sport Cup 250 at the Lotus Only event at Bathurst’s Mount Panorama. The Sport Cup 250 is sharper, more focussed Elise than the Sport 220 which is most intriguing.Read More
Lotus Cars Australia took 160 of its closest friends to one of the world’s most famous – and Australia’s most revered – racetrack, Mount Panorama. The Redline was there to soak it all in.Read More
The Lotus Evora GT seeks to widen the veteran mid-engine sports car’s appeal. With a more luxurious interior and a grand tourer vibe, it might come to Australia.Read More
The Lotus Elise Bathurst Edition is a long name for a small car to go with the length of its namesake.
That’s probably a complicated joke for a very limited edition car but we reckon it’s a cracker of an idea. There’s a long tradition of Bathurst-related special editions but this one has a clever sting in the tail.
New Lotus Evija electric supercar packs 2000PS and some startling performance figures. British sports car maker Lotus is on the move following its acquisition by Geely (who also own Volvo and Lynk&Co among others).

Lotus’ nutso 3-Eleven 430 is the last version of the road-going (in some countries) race car. The swansong 3-Eleven, limited to just 20 cars worldwide, will hold the crown as the fastest car around the company’s Hethel track. For at least six months, anyway.

The kerb weight is…Read More
