Lotus has chosen Mansory as its official bespoke partner or Official Customisation Studio. The German specialist has already worked with Lotus on a range of special editions, and will offer Lotus owners the “ultimate tailoring service”.

At the Paris Motor Show in September this year, Lotus will unveil a new model variant in collaboration with Mansory. Assigned to special projects, Mansory will contribute bodywork, trim and special finishes for the Elise, Exige and Evora.

Since the Evora Concept Bespoke at last year’s Geneva show, Lotus and Mansory have collaborated on several projects – the road-going Evora GTE, the chrome-red Evora GTE by Swizz Beatz and most recently, the raw carbon fibre Lotus F1 Team Evora GTE.

“At Mansory, we have always been passionate about British cars, and the cooperation with Lotus is the perfect partnership as it meets our quality standard of production on the highest technical level combined with masterly craftsmanship and the most precious materials,” said owner Kourosh Mansory.

“As the Official Lotus Customisation Studio, we amplify the existing options with harmonically designed aerodynamics and ultra-light aluminium rims. High-quality accessories and stylish interior fittings complete the Mansory assortment,” Mr Mansory added.
