High speed Hi-Fi: KEF and Lotus unveil luxury LS60 wireless Lotus Edition music system
State-of-the-art Hi-Fi technology and classic British Racing Green style collide with a new high-end home audio system, the LS60 Wireless Lotus Edition, which promises to transform any room into an audio sanctuary with a touch of “track spirit.”
A collaboration between British audio pioneer KEF and legendary automotive brand Lotus, the LS60 Wireless Lotus Edition comes in a striking heritage hue, synonymous with the adrenaline-fueled world of motorsport.
KEF and Lotus last partnered for the Lotus Emira sports car and the Lotus Eletre Hyper-SUV. Now, the pair hope to accelerate home audio, and we’re loving the style.
Yingjia Yao, Vice President of Group Lotus and Global Head of Lotus Life, explains, “With the success of KEF audio in the Emira sports car and the prospect of further triumph in the Eletre Hyper-SUV, we have extended our collaboration into the world of home audio with the launch of the LS60 Wireless speaker. It is designed to vividly embody the streamlined style of the sports car, with its colour inspired by the historic Lotus palette.”
