Colin Chapman's recipe for success in the Lotus Eleven racing car is a blend of simplicity, lightness, and aerodynamics at their finest. Designed with a singular purpose—to win—the Lotus Eleven emerges as a true champion, standing out as the most successful Lotus race car design. Its triumphs include a notable 7th overall placement at the 1956 24 Hours of Le Mans, driven by Reg Bicknell and Peter Jopp, along with numerous class wins at prestigious events like Le Mans and Sebring.

Lotus Eleven Design Style Steve Mcqueen


The ethos of "Simplify, then add lightness," which epitomizes Colin Chapman's design philosophy, transforms Lotus into a magnificent brand. The Eleven is constructed around a tubular space frame and draws power from a petite engine. Despite being fully loaded, the car weighs approximately 450 kg—less than half the weight of most modern compact or sub-compact cars. Remarkably, the Lotus Eleven achieves a top speed of up to 143 mph or 230 km/h with its 1100 cm3 engine. Sir Stirling Moss attains this impressive speed at the Monza race track.


The Lotus Eleven not only boasts an impressive racing record with 148 victories on the racetrack but also enjoys commercial success, surpassing any previous model with a total production run of 270 cars. Its distinctive shape is a testament to the work of Frank Costin, Lotus' aerodynamicist at the time. This unique vehicle finishes just 27 laps behind the formidable Jaguar D-Type at Le Mans, despite having a three times smaller engine displacement. It exemplifies the application of pure engineering science to the racetrack, resulting in one of the most beautiful automotive oddities.

Nicolas Cancelier

Nicolas Cancelier, born into an artistic family, discovered his passion for motorsport during his youth when a neighbor, a mechanic, introduced him to races at Spa and Nurburgring circuits. Channeling this racing enthusiasm, he expressed his love for the sport through various artistic mediums such as oil, watercolor, pastels, and pencil. His preferred eras in motorsport are the 50s, 60s, and 70s, and his artworks beautifully capture the essence of these iconic racing periods.
