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.

Hazel & Colin’s legacy

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.
