The next-generation electric racing car, designed specifically for long-distance racing, is modeled on the Lotus E-R9, which the factory says will circle the world’s tracks in 2030. Quite precisely, Lotus Engineering engineers working for external customers have created the Endurance Racer 9, which they envision will receive an improved powertrain for the Evija Street supercar.
The driver sits in the middle inside the bodywork, where active aerodynamics not only means adjustable wings and lockable air ducts, but also transformable body elements that control airflow. Engineers at Lotus Cars, as chief aerodynamic designer Richard Hill and Louis Kerr, chief engineer at Evija, also took part in the development. The Lotus E-R9, by the way, pays homage to the Mark IX race car made by Colin Chapman for the 1955 Le Mans 24 Hours.
