Hazel & Colin’s legacy
This week in December especially, we have in mind Hazel and Colin Chapman, one and 40 years on since they passed.
Every day at Classic Team Lotus we spend time working on the cars that represent their extraordinary legacy. Recently we have been focused on creating a Lotus Mk I show car, as commissioned by Lotus China for a touring show of cars that will communicate the Lotus story to this vital element of the development of Lotus into a global brand.
The Mk I has been a fascinating project. Referencing the precious few period images has been an ongoing process as the car has been constructed, which has led to frequent revelations and better interpretation and understanding.
