Started in 1952 as Lotus Engineering by Colin Chapman and Colin Dare, the company has been involved heavily in motor sports including Formula One, contracted automotive engineering and road cars.
After the death of Chapman in 1982, the company flirted with bankruptcy before passing through a number of hands, including Toyota, GM and Italian businessman Romano Artioli. The company is now part of the Malaysia industrial conglomerate DRB-Hicom, which also owns the Proton brand.
