Lotus F1 Team presented Mad Max Hybrid racing car
Lotus F1 Team, in co-operation with Warner Bros. Pictures, has prepared a radical-looking proposal for an alternative Formula 1 future. The vehicle, named Lotus F1 Team Mad Max Hybrid, is a fusion of Formula 1 technology reimagined for a post-apocalyptic future to coincide with the 15 May 2015 launch of the epic action adventure Mad Max:Fury Road.
Fitted with special accessories and heavy modifications for a world gone mad, the Lotus F1 Team Mad Max Hybrid was unveiled at the Barcelona International Motor Show at the Montjuic Exhibition Centre – at the same location for four Spanish Grand Prix between 1969-1975, along with two custom, drivable vehicles designed and created for the film: Nux’s car and the iconic Mad Max Interceptor.
“Lotus F1 Team is always viewed as a challenger team, so this was a fantastic opportunity to work with Warner Bros. Pictures on the concept of producing a Formula 1 car for the ultimate challenge of the nightmare scenario of an apocalyptic society seemingly headed for oblivion. This car acknowledges the tenacious nature of Lotus F1 Team; no matter what the rules in Formula 1’s future, we are here to stay and compete”, said Matthew Carter, Lotus F1 Team CEO.
