The new sports car will be introduced at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this week after being transported from Norfolk to West Sussex.

It is the fastest road vehicle that the Hethel-based car company has ever produced and is handmade at the Lotus headquarters.

Company chief executive officer Jean-Marc Gales will introduce the new car at the festival tomorrow morning.

It has been designed and manufactured in Norfolk, and is the latest model from the company.

The car’s journey across the county has been captured by Lotus’ social media team, along with a sample of what the new vehicle will sound like.
