Lotus has been a renowned manufacturer of British sports cars since its first car, the Mark 1 (a modified 1930’s Austin Seven), was built by company founder Anthony Chapman in 1948. 

Since then, Lotus has been a fixture at motorsport events around the world and its cars have been driven by racing legends like Stirling Moss, Graham Hill and Nigel Mansell.

Whether you drive an Elise or want an Esprit, you will need insurance, and could help you get you a quote that’s the same as going direct – or cheaper.

Lotus cars: did you know?

  • Established - 1952
  • Founder - Anthony Chapman
  • Headquarters - Hethel, UK

Although the first Lotus car was built in 1948, the company wasn't officially formed until 4 years later.

The Lotus Esprit was driven several times by James Bond, played by Roger Moore, in the 1970’s and 1980’s. It was used most famously in the film ‘The Spy Who Loved Me’ when it converted into a submarine and back again.

The Lotus Evora S was entered in the 2011 Gumball 3000 Rally, which covered eight countries in eight days, and was driven by British actor Tamer Hassan and co-driver Costa Mandylor.
