15th March 2011: The Lotus New 7 concept was created to explore the idea of a new roadster model which could both expand and compliment the current range of Lotus 7 derived sports cars. The original 7 has been around in various forms for over 50 years, and while most of the components and engineering have been upgraded over the years, the current car looks almost identical to the very first.

The New 7 features slightly larger proportions than the current car - and slightly more refinement. Although just like the old 7 it can be configured in innumerable ways to suit the needs of the owner. It can be built to act as a weekend toy - fast and agile but with a few creature comforts. Or it can be created solely for racing - stripped down to the bare essentials and equipped with a full rollcage, racing fuel cell and integrated fire suppression system.

On offer would be a massive range of accessories and parts to help owners tailor the car exactly to their tastes. An emphasis would be put on owner-maintenance, and there would be a huge amount of support for the amateur New 7 mechanic in the form of free tutorials, workshops and online support. The body panels have all been designed to be easily removable. Either for repair after racing, or for maintenance and upgrades of the drivetrain and mechanical elements.

The Lotus New 7 could be powered by a variety of different engines. However it would be primarily designed to accommodate smaller-displacement direct-injection 4-cylinder engines - either naturally aspirated or turbocharged. Power would be sent to the rear wheels though a manual transmission.

The Lotus New 7 was developed in-house by diseno-art.com to fit within the new range of more refined and mainstream models due to arrive in Lotus dealerships over the next few years. However the New 7 would also help to rekindle the basic, lightweight philosophy of the original and best Lotus models.
