Lotus Type 119C Soapbox

Okay, it exists for a while now but that doesn't make it less cool. This is the Lotus Type 119C Soapbox. This kind of car might remind you of those soapbox races you were doing yourself years and years ago when you were just a little kid. The 119C was not built to go fast but solely for aerodynamic efficiency. This vehicle has 20 inch wheels , a carbon composite monocoque and lightweight titanium steering parts.

Test driver Paul Adams managed to reach speeds over 63 miles per hour. Lotus used this car during the "Gravity Racing Club Soapbox Challenge" at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
