The Lotus 107 was built by Team Lotus for the 1992 Formula One season, and used throughout most of 1992, 1993 and part of 1994, it brought in a final, short-lived period of competitiveness for the team in Formula One.

The 107 is attributed to the design work of Chris Murphy and his design team.  Murphy joined Lotus after Akira Akagi's arrest and the Leyton House team he owned was thrown into turmoil.  Murphy had designed the 1991 car; the 107 looked very similar to his earlier design leading some to say that the new Lotus was simply a rebadged Leyton House.  After several seasons spent perfecting the system, the 107 was fitted with active suspension, pioneered by Lotus ten years before.

Unquestionably beautiful, the 107 had smooth sweeping lines a world away from the long developed and antiquated Lotus 102D whose heritage can be traced to the 1990 Formula One Season. The installation of the Ford Cosworth HB V8 engines, of a similar - if older - specification to those being used by Benetton, was complete by the unveiling of the car at the 1992 San Marino Grand Prix.

Johnny Herbert liked the car very much, saying it was sublime to drive and responsive to set up changes, but admitted it was not reliable.
