All Lotus Models Insured
The Lotus is looked upon as one of the nimblest and most sporty roadsters available. Its sport car pedigree is a massive factor in its success and desirability, having had a successful F1 team during the 60s, 70s and 80s.
Lotus was founded in 1952 by a true sporting and motor enthusiast who begun the Lotus ethos of performance and racing style vehicles. Lotus’ leap into the sporting world was one of desire that saw Lotus winning the formula one world championship an impressive 7 times, and at one point being the car with the most ever Grand Prix victories. The chassis of today’s popular Lotus models can be found in a range of other vehicles that take advantage of its impressive build and handling qualities.

A Guide to Lotus – FAQs
How much does a Lotus cost to insure?
It may surprise you to know Lotuses aren’t excessively expensive to insure. However, as is always the case with car insurance, prices are dependent on the model you are insuring, your driving history, the car’s security, your age and the mileage you intend to do in the car. Approaching a specialist insurance broker like Keith Michaels is the best place to start, as we have specific schemes in place designed exclusively for owners of high-performance cars.
Are Lotus cars reliable?
Nowadays, Lotuses are much more reliable than they once were. Many believe this is down to the cars now making use of Toyota engines. These engines can be found in the Evora, Elise and Exige, and most think this is the core reason for the improvements in reliability.
Are Lotus cars expensive to fix and maintain?
