Murray will work alongside key automotive industry figures Bob Lutz (former GM vice chairman), Tom Purves (ex-Rolls-Royce chief executive), Prof. Dr. Burkhard Göschel (a former BMW board member responsible for research and development board member) and Frank Tuch, who was director of quality management at Porsche.

Group Lotus Chief Executive Dany Bahar said: "Gordon has never been afraid to trail blaze, take risks and do things differently, these are attribute that we are very familiar with and very proud of at Lotus. With his incredible and unique motorsport and design experience he will complement the existing council line up perfectly. We’re very much looking forward to working with him."
