Not to be confused with the Lotus T128 (Formula One car).

The Lotus T128[2] is an auto racing car developed for the Le Mans Prototype regulations. The car, co-developed in Germany by Advanced Design Engineering Systems Solutions AG (Adess AG) and the Kodewa racing team will make its début during the 2013 FIA World Endurance Championship season, with two cars being entered in the LMP2 category by Kodewa under the Lotus sponsorship title. Kodewa also plans to offer the T128 to customer teams for use in other series.[1] The T128 is also developed to be legal under the 2014 Le Mans Prototype regulations by increasing driver visibility and safety.[3] The T128 will utilize Judd engines carrying the badge of the Czech manufacturer Praga.[4]

Two cars were entered in the 2013 24 Hours of Le Mans. Car number 31 retired after 17 laps, whilst car number 32 retired after 219 laps.[5]
