Car Of The Day: 2022 Lotus Evija Fittipaldi Edition

The new limited-edition Lotus Evija Fittipaldi celebrates the race legend Emerson Fittipaldi and Team Lotus winning F1 Drivers’ and Constructors’ Championships five decades ago, naturally, this new all-electric hypercar mimics the black and gold color scheme seen on the Lotus Type 72 racecar from the early Seventies.

Despite its incredible power and performance, the driver remains at the center of the Lotus Evija experience, just as it was for the Emerson Fittipaldi and the Type 72. The technical specification and performance figures of the Lotus Evija Fittipaldi are truly astonishing; more than 2,000 PS makes it the most powerful series production car in the world, creating more than 1,700Nm of torque. The 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) is completed in under three seconds, and 0-186 mph (0-300 km/h) takes nine seconds from a standing start. The limited maximum speed is 217 mph (350 km/h).
