Lotus is working with renowned British music producer, Patrick Patrikios, to develop a range of sounds for the all-electric Evija hypercar.
Patrikios has written and produced for Sia, Britney Spears, Pixie Lott and numerous other world-famous stars. The tracks he’s worked on have been streamed more than a billion times.
The Lotus Type 49 provided inspiration for Evija soundscape and to create the blueprint for company’s future electric cars.
Patrikios says: “We wanted to create a soundscape for the Evija that was recognisably and distinctively Lotus. We wanted something intrinsically connected to Lotus so we could set an audio blueprint for its future electric cars.”
He adds: “I adjusted the replay speeds and digital filtering of the Type 49 to generate a soundscape for the Evija – it was a very organic process. We all wanted something to spark an emotional connection between car and driver. Sound is hugely influential when it comes to creating and forming emotions, to enrich that bond that’s such a critical part of the Lotus experience.”
He concludes: “I love that the sound from one of the most iconic Lotus race cars of all time has been the inspiration for its newest. There’s a symmetry to it which is beautiful.”
The Lotus Evija is the first all-electric vehicle to be manufactured by the company.
