I wouldn't want anything of mine associated with that.



I wasn't actually. I wouldn't be surprised if they got a letter from someone like Ferrari did with the F150.


Just conducted a quick google and I saw a post on another forum that they are calling a road car the CT02, which still does not make sense as surely most teams (except Ferrari) name the cars after the other such as Mclaren MP4-26, MP4-27 and so on, it just seems random to call your road car the CT02 and not continue a trend for the series of F1 cars a team creates.

Is that not what Lotus done?

The cars were number in sequence with no secretion of type.

If you're taking about the current Lotus team, wasn't the 2011 car called the R31 when Renault still had a stake in the team.

Last year they changed the name to E20 to represent that it was the 20th chassis that the Enstone factory had made.

That's what lotus did, in 2011 they were still Renault and lotus were just a lead sponsor, so it made sense in 2012 whey that were called lotus to call the chassis a different name, as you said to commemorate the 20th car that had been made at the factory.

The Caterham CT-02 is going to be produced as part of their partnership with Renault:

Quote:
Both companies have agreed to join forces to design, develop and build affordable sports cars, which will be built at the Alpine plant in Dieppe, Normandy, France.

The cars, CT02 and the new Alpine, are set to be launched in the Asia and Europe markets by 2015.

And there's our answer. I'd heard about the partnership before, but it didn't stick my my head that they're were calling the Caterham car CT02.
Thanks.

Thanks for the definitive answer, in my opinion it still doesn't make sense.

Nah I meant Lotus as in the real Lotus i.e. Colin Chapman.

Eesh...warn me when you put up things like that, I was eating...

If i didn't see the Toyota badge, I could have sworn the MACK designers were trying to hit it big on the private cars market. Boy oh boy, and I thought the Aztek and the Ssangoyongs were enough in the ugly cars department; turns out everybody wants a piece of that cake too.

Now back to Caterham, can somebody explain why this car's nose is THAT long? where's the aerodynamic advantage gain? or are they simply trying to spear the competition off track?
