Designed by Colin Chapman, the Lotus 80 was an attempt at a total ground effect car, with the entire chassis being built as a ground effect system. At high speeds this worked very well, but was unstable at low speed, the car going from no grip to too much grip very quickly.It was only run for 4 races although it did achieve a 3rd place in Spain.

Again designed by Colin Chapman, the Lotus 81 was another ground effect car. It wasnt terribly successful however leading to Chapman designing the twin chassis Lotus 88 - which was ultimately banned - so the 81 was used for longer than anticipated.  it was driven mainly by Maro Andretti and Elio de Angelis, although it did give Nigel mansell his debut in the 1981 season as well!

Used during the 1988 Formula One season. The 100T was an update of the previous Lotus 99T model; technically the car was virtually unchanged, except for redesigned nose and rear bodywork. The car was powered by the same, 640 bhp, 1.5L turbocharged Honda V6 engine that powered the McLaren team to 15 wins in 16 races in 1988. The car was driven by reigning World Champion Nelson Piquet, and Japanese driver Satoru Nakajima.
