Lotus will reveal details of a new customisation programme for its cars alongside this Mansory version of the Evora, which currently features at the Geneva motor show.
Lotus says the Evora is not be a facelift, but instead shows a “taste of the future of Lotus product customisation”. The Geneva car “is merely the first toe in the water and a showcase of the potential future”, the firm said in a statement.
Swiss tuner Mansory looks set to be announced as Lotus’s partner in its future customisation programme, given its involvement in the Geneva show car. It has a recent history in tuning British cars, although its designs are often garish, this is particularly evident in its customisation of the Rolls-Royce Ghost.
The Mansory Evora for Geneva sports a much more aggressive front-end, inspired by Lotus’s five new sports cars from last year’s Paris motor show. This front-end is also likely to be adopted by the upcoming Evora facelift as Lotus design boss Donato Coco believes the current design is “too weak” for a modern sports car.
