So much like all the other racing pies Lotus are sticking their fingers into right now then?
Makes you wonder if they ever plan to advertise and sell their road cars by properly building and racing their own designs, or if they’re going to spend their time, as you say, cynically rebadging any race car they can get their hands on.
aston-martin, bentley, mg, ford (gt40 and ford-cosworth engines), chevy-illmor (now mercedes hpe), renault, and so forth.
for that matter, any wrc, nascar, v8 supercar, wtcc et cetera. to find a real car really made by a real manufacturer, you’d probably have to look at lower class GT porsches and ferraris.
