The company Lotus used a version of its own hrebtovoy frame, adapted to the new power, and all worked out very well. The model showed a striking coupling of tyres with road, engine capacity of 1.6 liters, there was an electronic fuel injection. The engine freely rotating torque was high because of ostuzhaemomu water turbochargers. The body was made with the use of forms fiberglasa, therefore, turned out to be very easy. Specially designed lever front suspension with a cross-lever kept torque at a minimum while back, more low-lying cross levers kept the car at the corners.
