The latest news is that I left Lotus to join another prestigious British Car Manufacturer with focus on design and performance vehicles. In the summer of 2011 I started working for Aston Martin where new challenges lay ahead of me. The new design team seems pretty good and I am looking forward to great results in the future…
I would like to express my gratitude to all my friends and colleagues I met at Lotus Cars, it was an amazing time being in the studio and having fun everyday as we’re building sports cars. You won’t find more friendly environment in the design world that’s for sure! And last but not least important – to be part of the Design Team that shaped the new Lotus line-up presented at the Paris Motor Show last year was unforgettable experience. I had such a great time in Lotus! Thank you all, Love you all!
Below is a picture of the Lotus Design team shortly after the Paris Motors Show 2010.
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!

Busy times recently have kept me away from my blog which has resulted in me not posting here. Just now I have to say I am very proud to announce my new design position. Since January 2010 I joined the design team of Lotus Cars based in England and I am very excited to work for a sports car manufacturer with such a great history. The Lotus Design Team is very professional, as well as very fun and enjoyable to work with. Lotus’ return to Formula One racing is one of the things which indicates the company intensions to return back to glory……
I left Ferrari in December 2009 with positive impressions only. It was an outstanding experience being a part of their design studio and working on projects like Ferrari 599XX, Ferrari 458 Italia and some others you’ll see in the future. I had the opportunity to be surrounded by cars such as F40, F50, Enzos, 430 Scuderia…599s and especially the Classical Beauties. If you have the chance to visit Maranello, make sure that you go to Galleria Ferrari – their museum where you can find their super and F1 cars. Make sure you try their Cafe Espresso too!!!
I take this chance to thank the colleagues I worked with in Ferrari! ….It will be great to see you again!
