About this artwork
The Lotus Eleven was a racing car built in various versions by Lotus from 1956 until 1958. The later versions built in 1958 are sometimes referred to as a Lotus 13, although this was not an official design total, about 270 Elevens of all versions were built.
The Eleven was designed by Colin Chapman and fitted with a sleek body designed by aerodynamics’ Frank Costin. Its standard version, dubbed Le Mans, was fitted with a 1500 cc (92ci)1 Coventry Climax engine mounted in the front of a tubular space frame and featured a De Dion rear axle and Girling disc brakes. Fully loaded, the car weighed only about 1,000 lb (450 kg). Versions for a 1100 cc (67ci)2 Climax engine (Club) and a 1172 cc (72ci)2 Ford engine (Sport) were also produced; both featured a live rear axle and drum brakes. Some versions of the Le Mans were fitted with a closed body with gull wing doors to meet GT specifications.
