Aryton Senna’s 1986 Lotus 98T is probably one of the most iconic Formula One cars. It’s the past in a long distinctive line of cars in the stunning John Player Special colors of black and gold. This concept reinterprets these colors for Team Lotus in the F1 season 2011. This celebrates the organic beauty of F1 autos with matte dark-colored sponsor logos as opposed to bright obnoxious branding. Black carbon fibre remains unpainted to reduce weight. The top surfaces are coated with a matte end to improve laminar flow lowering turbulence and growing aerodynamic efficiency.
