Lotus Cars 

In 1948, at age 20, Anthony Colin Bruce Chapman started Lotus Cars by building the first Lotus racing cars in stables behind the Railway Hotel in Hornsby, North London. Chapman used a 1930’s Austin Seven and a power drill to build the Lotus Mark 1.

Today, Lotus Cars is one of the premier racing car manufacturers in the world.
