Radford, a British coachbuilder, has returned to business with the support of former Formula 1 World Champion Jensen Button. They will release their first car, the 62-2, which is a modern version of the Lotus 62 prototype racecar.
Lotus has approved the design, which will use a strong aluminum chassis from the Evora and have new carbon fiber bodywork inspired by the original 62. The special Gold Leaf edition will have a powerful 3.5-liter supercharged Toyota V6 engine producing up to 600 horsepower.
Jensen Button will be involved in fine-tuning the car's performance on the track. Only 62 of these track-focused cars will be made.
