Simplicity, lightness, and aerodynamics at their finest are the key ingredients Colin Chapman uses to create the Lotus Eleven racing car. It is designed to win and it is a true winner. This car has the most successful Lotus race car design. It becomes 7th overall at the 1956 24 Hours of Le Mans with drivers Reg Bicknell and Peter Jopp. It also has numerous class wins at Le Mans and Sebring.
This Lotus Eleven art is a tribute to racing oddity
“Simplify, then add lightness” is the credo of Colin Chapman that turns Lotus into a truly magnificent brand. The Eleven is built around a tubular space frame and gets its power from a tiny engine. Fully loaded, the car weighs about 450 kg. This is twice less (and even more!) than any compact or even sub-compact modern car. Unlike any modern subcompact, Lotus Eleven is capable of max speed of up to 143 mph or 230 km/h. This is spectacular for a car with a 1100 cm3 engine. Sir Stirling Moss achieves the max speed at Monza race track.
With its 148 racetrack victories, Lotus Eleven is not only a racing success but also a commercial one. The total production run of 270 cars exceeds any previous model. Its unusual shape is a function of Frank Costin's work, the Lotus` aerodynamicist back in the day. This is how the tiny vehicle finishes just 27 laps behind the almighty Jaguar D-Type at Le Mans with three times smaller engine displacement. This is what we call pure engineering science applied to the racetrack that turns into one of the most beautiful automotive oddities.
