Inexpensive, reliable, easy to maneuver and park transportation for a crowded urban area. This is where motorbikes, scooters, and mopeds really shine compared to ‘traditional’ motorcycles.

Lotus: The Art of Lightness

January 24 – April 26, 2015

1956 Lotus Mk VI front 3q_72dpiLotus and the genius of Colin Chapman have been at the forefront of racing technology and automotive design since 1948. Colin Chapman’s philosophy of light weight and efficiency of design resulted in 7 Formula 1 World Championships as well as wins at Le Mans, and Indianapolis , saloon car racing and the World Rally Championship. Chapman’s mantras of simplification, light weight and the least amount of parts effectively deployed that went into his racing car design were directly translated into Lotus’ road cars and produced iconic machines such as the Seven, Elan, Esprit, and Elise. The rest of the automotive world are finally realizing that horsepower makes you fast in the straights, but light weight makes you faster everywhere – and more fuel efficient to boot!

This exhibit will feature a variety of Lotus models throughout that 60 year history.
