Lotus unveiled the stunning Type 66 Race Car at the 2023 edition of Monterey Car Week. Crafted with precision and innovation oozing from every curve, this isn’t just a car; it’s a symphony of engineering prowess and design mastery.
Lotus originally designed the Type 66 for the Can-Am Series but it was never produced with Lotus shifting focus to F1. 53 years later, the car has been revived as a track car that feels both nostalgic with ’70s-styling and progressively modern. With its sleek silhouette and cutting-edge features, it’s a fusion of power and elegance that demands attention on the track. The Type 66 is powered by a V8 push-rod engine that produces 818 hp and up to 550 lb-ft of torque. It featuring extruded aluminum sections, bonded joints, and aluminum honeycomb panels to keep things authentic. Wherever it races, it’s sure to be a head-turner.
Only 10 of the Lotus Type 66 will be produced with an estimated cost of over $1,250,000.
