The Lotus Exige LF1 is a limited edition car. 81 Lotus Exige S cars received a Lotus F1 Team inspired livery and interior trim to commemorate 81 Grand Prix victories won by the Lotus marque up until the end of 2013.
Each of the 81 limited edition cars is sequentially numbered and celebrates a specific Grand Prix from car #1 commemorating Lotus’ first GP victory at Monaco in 1960 to car #81 marking Kimi Raikkonen’s win at Australia in 2013.
An individually numbered limited edition carbon fibre build plate located on the passenger side dash gives the number of the car / victory together with the circuit and the Grand Prix with year.
Each car was also supplied with a collectors pack which included, amongst other items, a individual book specific to each car. There are a number of standard pages within the book that provides details about Lotus' history and the Lotus Exige and there is also an individual double page that details about the race the car commemorates.
My Lotus Exige V6 LF1 commemorates victory number 38, the 1970 Holland Grand Prix at Zandvoort. This was a significant race in Lotus' history as it was won by Jochen Rindt in the Lotus 72C, its inaugural race. Jochen Rindt went on to win the 1970 F1 World Championship, posthumously, and the Lotus 72C won the Constructors Championship.
