The official presentation of the new British hypercar is scheduled for July 16. It is known that a total of 130 cars will be built. The novelty will receive a 1000-hp hybrid engine and four-wheel drive.

More than ten years have passed since the appearance of the last brand new Lotus car, but the good news is that a completely new model will be introduced in about a month and a half. Not just a model, but a full-fledged hypercar with a fully electric powerplant and a name that pays tribute to the company’s heritage.

 First announced at the Shanghai Motor Show in April of this year, Type 130 got this nickname as a tribute to the number of all the various Type that Lotus introduced during its 71-year history.

The latest press release not only announces the world debut, scheduled for July 16, which will take place at a special event in London, but also accompanied by new teaser photos and videos. The video begins with a tablet with the name of the model installed on the carbon fiber surface. A voiceover says that “the car will be assembled by hand in the UK by Lotus.” It is reported that only 130 samples of electric hypercar will be collected.

Then we catch a glimpse of the back of this car, proudly carrying the illuminated inscription Lotus, as well as the rear LED lights. That’s all that Lotus is ready to show for now. The brand representatives themselves call their new product “the most dynamically developing road car” in the entire history. According to rumors, a low and wide hypercar will be approximately 4,350 mm in length and almost 2,000 mm in width. They say that he has more than 1,000 horsepower, four-wheel drive and a power reserve of 402 kilometers.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that Lotus and Williams will work together on hypercar.
