2012 LOTUS LMP2 LIVERY DESIGN. Lotus is one of the greatest names in motor racing history. Daniel Simon is proud to have been asked to design a distinct graphic for their 2012 Le Mans contender. Staying faithful to both the legendary black and gold livery and the current Lotus Design CI, a sophisticated look comes to life that impresses with its beautiful simplicity.
“Racing is passion in every detail. One of them is how the car connects from the track to the fans. That’s the role of a livery. It’s how most people describe and remember a race car. Especially with Lotus. Endurance racing is amongst the most prestigious motorsport events, injected with a star-studded history, heroic tales and tragedies. It’s a dream coming true to be involved. We created a unique car. A beautiful Lotus.”
Daniel Simon’s original concept design from late 2011, based on early development surfaces for Kodewa Lotus team. Simon’s main task was finding simplistic lines that add character and speed, while maintaining enough negative space for sponsor placement. Note the thin offset lines that could not be duplicated on the real car.
