1955 Lotus 10

Lotus X

In 1955 Colin Chapman designed this car around the Bristol Straight-6. The whole design was very similar to the 8, including it’s spaceframe chassis and streamlined aluminum body. It was known as the Lotus Mark X and was manufactured by Lotus Engineering Ltd. The X was almost identical to the Mark VIII but made use of the larger 2.0-litre Bristol engine.
