- Mansory dresses up the Lotus Evora - Influenced by controversial Paris show cars - Launches 'bespoke' customer service
Lotus has teamed up with outlandish tuner Mansory to make a very sharp version of the Evora, wearing lots of carbon fibre.
What's all the fuss about?
Lotus was rumoured to be close to unveiling a new Evora, facelifted early because of lacklustre sales. So when this Mansory Evora was first unveiled a few weeks ago - looking rather similar to the show cars that wowed the Paris Motor Show in September - it seemed to confirm the rumour. Lotus has denied that though, saying that the Geneva car merely introduces a bespoke styling programme for customers.
Any new technology?
No new technology, but a lot of carbon makes this the best looking Evora to date - we do hope the facelift is 'inspired' by this, when it eventually comes. The most surprising thing about this car, though, is the restraint shown by Mansory. You may remember the garish purple and gold Rolls-Royce Phantom it brought to last year's Geneva show? In fact, the Ferrari 458 Italia it has on its stand this year isn't much easier to swallow.
Estimated release date: Now, if you want it.
Estimated cost: POA.
