Norfolk-Lotus has confirmed that its Type 130 (the company’s first all-new model in more than a decade) will be revealed to the world’s media at an exclusive event in Central London on 16 July.
Following confirmation of the project in April at the Shanghai International Auto Show
, several hundred potential owners have expressed their interest in the new car, although Lotus says that a maximum of 130 will be available — representing the number of Lotus ‘Types’ introduced during the brand’s 71-year history.
The car (www.media.lotuscars.com
) will be built at Hethel in Norfolk (the company’s headquarters since 1966).
The Type 130 will be “the most dynamically accomplished road” car in the history of Lotus, continuing “a bloodline rich in firsts and technical game-changers in automotive and motor-sport”.
