With production of the Exige S at Hethel now well underway, Lotus has turned its hand to producing a harder, faster and more track-ready version, due to be launched at this weekend’s Lotus Festival at Brands Hatch.
“Race on Sunday, Sell on Monday” is the philosophy which underpinned the most iconic sporting marques such as Ferrari, Porsche and Lotus and it still applies today, with Aston Martin, who successfully completed the gruelling 39th ADAC Nürburgring 24 Hour race last month and has now announced a road-going version of the V12 Zagato race car.
To mark the 50th anniversary year of the iconic DB4GT Zagato, Aston Martin has announced an exciting new collaboration with the renowned Italian design house Zagato – starting with a car to be shown for the first time at the famous Villa D’Este Concours on 21st May 2011, with a racing debut at Nürburgring later in the month.
“Awesome bravery. The car is a Norma M20 hillclimb car, powered by a BMW engine and driven by Alain Castellana.” – almightywiggles
