The bottom compartment of the Lotus Europa SE is completely flat, so easy to create a down force without installing a huge wing. In addition, this way allows to avoid the usage of not necessary any more materials that were increasing the weight of the car. In Lotus they still remain true to their motto: “The dynamics due to the low weight.” So the car weighs only a ton. It is small – 3,900 mm in length, but quite wide 1714 mm and very low 1120 mm. But such dimensions allow the car to be strong on the road and dive into the wind, fog, rain and other weather conditions.
