In 2010, Miroslav Dimitrov had the extraordinary privilege of joining Lotus Cars in Hethel, England, during a pivotal moment in the company’s history. Lotus, known as the 3rd most successful Formula 1 team, embarked on a mission to restore its prestigious reputation and former glory. The first step in this ambitious endeavor involved unveiling a portfolio of 5 concept cars to the public at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, offering a captivating vision of the brand’s future model lineup.
Being a key member of the design team, Miroslav Dimitrov was heavily involved in every project of the future line-up. That includes: The initial concept chosen for Lotus Elise, Lotus Eterne Concept (designed together with Mihai Panaitescu) and of course interior work for no less than 4 show cars.
The Lotus Eterne Concept is a true four door, four seater sports GT. It’s the ultimate expression of refined style, sophistication and grace. Designed in a teamwork between Miroslav and his colleague Mihai Panaitescu. Pictured above Lotus Eterne Concept on displayed at the Paris Motor Show.
New Lotus Elise scale model proposal (pictured above). Lotus says: “The Lotus Elise you can buy now is still a fantastic car, make no mistake, Lotus remain very proud of it, but this is a natural progression for us moving forward. The Elise 2015 will also be class-leading in terms of performance and efficiency but it will do more than that it will take the Lotus Elise model to the forefront of its class across the board. The design of the Lotus Elise 2015 is perfect for the target market, it’s young, strong, confident, verging on ruthless, it mirrors the engineering and technology. It’s the next generation Elise for a new generation of Lotus drivers.”
