Lotus is back with a BIG bang! Those ones closely following the car industry probably knew what the famous sports car manufacturer was about to present in Paris. The reveal showed a whole new range of concepts outlining its next generation of cars. Lotus Cars exceeded people’s expectations and presented not one or two, but a total of six concept cars – the bold move from the British car company shocked everyone! There was no doubt Lotus was the biggest star of the Paris Motor Show! With a few other good looking concepts, the rest of the Paris Motor Show 2010 was super dull and depressing. Full with potato shaped vehicles that will never succeed in making you excited, not to mention any desire to drive or own one of them. Sad, very sad for our industry!
On the positive side I can’t help but to feel proud and excited being part of the design team that shaped these cars for less than one year. I call that an incredible achievement. I must admit that all of us in the studio worked very hard to deliver these prototypes on time. It was flat-out work process from start to finish. Only when you stand near the cars and observe all those journalists and photographers hassling around the models you’ve been part of, you realise all this crazy toil was worth it and every bit of you is proud to be part of this historical event!!! Thank You Lotus for the opportunity and many thanks to all guys from the Lotus Design Team too! I am so happy working with you guys!
