LeMans Hype: Lotus Going to LMP2 Class With Lola And BMW

Posted on 02.02.12 | Andrew Beckford No Comments

Today Italian chassis builder Lola announced that Lotus will be entering LeMans with an LMP2 program in a Lola Chassis that will be powered by a BMW V8 built by the same engineers that Lotus is currently working with to develop their twin-turbo V6 Indy Car engine program.  With their entry into LeMans I think the only major motorsport Lotus does not have their hand in is NASCAR!

Here is another fun fact, if you really dig the livery on the Lotus LMP2 car you may be happy to know that it was designed by Daniel Simon who also designed the light cycles for Tron: Legacy!  Cool huh?
