Ultra Lightweight Sport Cars

The Lotus Sport 250 Offers Speed With a to a Moderate Construction

— December 10, 2015 — Autos
The all-new Lotus Sport 350 vehicle design offers impressive speed and precision thanks to a scaled-back and lightweight structure construction that allows the driver to have more agility, momentum and rigor while on the road.

Unlike other Lotus auto models, the Sport 350 offers for a lighter overall silhouette and design weighing in at 51-kilograms less than its former counterparts. The reduced scale allows the car to be much more lightweight on the road, increasing the driver's control of the car. The reduced weight is thanks to the use of a aerodynamic sport's car body made from a composite body with a lighter battery, tailgate, engine and console. Despite the shift in materials that comprise the auto, the car is incredibly quiet and limber on the open road.
