“Is it always wise to customise? If you must, then do it with some style …” So goes the intro to Lotus’ brief release on its upcoming offering that will be showcased in Geneva.

The car in question is the Evora, and the company is quick to point out that the car going to the show isn’t an Evora facelift, but “a taste of the future of Lotus product customisation. Merely the first toe in the water and a showcase of the potential future.”

Turns out that the Evora has been given a cosmetic reworking by aftermarket tuning outfit Mansory, which has done a fair number of mods on upmarket cars, some in a rather over-the-top manner.

That’s not the case with the Evora by Mansory, which displays enough carbon-fibre to wage a little war with, but all delivered in clean enough fashion. The roof, rear spoiler, rear diffuser, side skirting as well as front splitter all get the carbon graphite treatment. No idea what the interior’s like, but you can bet there’s more of the stuff to be had inside.

Geneva will reveal all.
