Product Details

Corgi presents the Lotus collection, a series of die-cast 1:43 scale detailed model cars. Each model carries an authentic Lotus livery and comes complete with a collector card detailing information about the car modelled. The model is presented in a plastic case of which it can be removed for display.

This series of models includes Lotus road cars and motorsport, including Lotus Formula One.  For over sixty years, British car manufacturer Lotus has been designing and building sports and racing cars. The first Lotus car was built in 1948 by Colin Chapman in North London and soon afterwards Lotus was competing very successfully in some of the greatest motorsport championships in the world, including Formula One and Le Mans. 

Today the Lotus headquarters is based on a former RAF World War Two airfield in Norfolk, it is here where they currently design, test and build their current models.  Throughout the Lotus history the manufacturing and design has always been built on producing light-weight cars with fine handling, creating some of the finest sports cars that are available today.

The Lotus F1 Team debuted at the 2012 Australian Grand Prix with the new E20 chassis which was designed and manufactured at the team’s Oxfordshire based technical facility. On the 28th January 2013 Lotus launched their new car the E21 and the new car performed well at the Jerez testing sessions in Spain. The chassis is made from carbon fibre and aluminium making it strong but also light in weight – including driver, cameras and ballast the E21 weighs only 642kg. The car is powered by a Renault RS27-2013 engine, a 2.4 litre V8 with a displacement of 2400cc and power output of 750 bhp.

Kimi Raikkonen entered Formula 1 in 2001 and like many drivers his early career started out in karting at the age of ten. This culminated with securing the FIA Formula 1 World Drivers’ Championship in 2007. On the 29th November 2011 it was announced that Kimi would be returning to the sport by signing a two year deal with the team. 2012 was a good year for Kimi, he won the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix and an amazing six other podium finishes, earning him third place in the Drivers’ Championship
