Lotus introduces the Evija Fittipaldi

Showcasing the world-famous 50-year-old black and gold color scheme, the exterior of this Evija is hand-painted exterior and shows multiple unique design features especially created to commemorate this amazing collaboration between Emerson Fittipaldi and Lotus, including a hand-tinted plan view of the Type 72 etched into the exposed carbon fiber roof, while a genuine Fittipaldi signature gets hand-stitched into the dashboard, but the most emotive detail of all is the rotary dial on the floating central instrument panel. It has been hand-crafted from recycled original Type 72 aluminium, ensuring a genuine piece of the iconic F1 racer is part of each Evija Fittipaldi.

During the official unveiling at a once-in-a-lifetime experience day at Hethel the guest of honor was Emerson Fittipaldi himself, who said: "It's fantastic to be back at Hethel for such a special occasion. I've really enjoyed being a part of this project and it's been a wonderful experience revealing the car to some of the new owners. Having the opportunity to drive both the Evija Fittipaldi and my championship-winning Type 72 Formula 1 car on the test track at Hethel has been an incredible experience."

The fact that a total of all eight surviving examples of the Type 72 were gathered at this event for the first time in history made it obvious to have the same number of Evija cars built for the early adopter who put in their order, Simon Lane, Director, Lotus Advanced Performance, commented: "The word 'legend' is often overused, but this project has brought together the Lotus Evija hypercar, Emerson Fittipaldi, the Type 72 race car and our brand's celebrated Formula 1 heritage. No argument, that is four legitimate legends, all collaborating to deliver a truly unique hypercar and a world premiere that was a real 'pinch yourself' moment."
