2022 Lotus Evija Fittipaldi Edition is recently revealed. 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).
The 2022 Lotus Evija Fittipaldi Edition is a stunning electric hypercar that is designed to showcase the pinnacle of engineering and performance in the automotive industry. It is named after the Brazilian racing driver and two-time Formula One world champion, Emerson Fittipaldi, who has been involved in the development of the vehicle.
This limited-edition car is based on the standard Evija model but features a range of upgrades that make it even more impressive. The Fittipaldi Edition is powered by four electric motors that produce a combined output of 2,000 horsepower, which propels the car from 0 to 60 miles per hour in under three seconds. The top speed is over 200 miles per hour, making it one of the fastest cars in the world.
One of the most striking features of the Evija Fittipaldi Edition is its aerodynamic design. The car features an active rear spoiler and a front splitter that generates downforce to keep the car firmly planted to the ground, even at high speeds. The body is made of lightweight carbon fiber, which helps to keep the car’s weight down to just over 3,700 pounds.
The interior of the car is also a work of art. The seats are made of carbon fiber and are upholstered in Alcantara, while the dashboard and center console are crafted from machined aluminum. The steering wheel is inspired by F1 racing cars and features a range of controls for the car’s various systems, including the active suspension and regenerative braking.
The Evija Fittipaldi Edition is also packed with cutting-edge technology. It features a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, a 16.0-inch infotainment system, and a range of driver assistance features, including adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning.
Only 12 examples of the Lotus Evija Fittipaldi Edition will be produced, making it an exclusive and highly sought-after car. It is a true masterpiece of automotive engineering that sets new standards for performance, design, and technology.
