Immerse yourself inside the epicentre of a British icon.
Hethel is home to the headquarters of Lotus Cars and the birthplace of many of its legendary models – from the classic Esprit featured in epic movie blockbusters “The Spy Who Loved Me” and “Pretty Woman” to the brand-new V6 Exige S .
Since moving to Hethel in 1966 all Lotus models are developed and honed at the company’s own 2.2 mile Test Track. The legendary course where the likes of Clark, Rindt, Fittipaldi and Senna tested their incredible Formula One cars has recently been completely refurbished and now features a combination of long straights, tight hairpins and tricky curve combinations that are guaranteed to push even the most seasoned driver to the limit.
The one-of-a-kind Lotus manufacturing facility and the historic Classic Team Lotus Formula One workshops are also on site and both can be visited.
A maximum dose of Lotus past, present and future – welcome to the Lotus Driving Academy Hethel.
