German ‘styling’ house to become Official Customisation Studio for Lotus.
Lotus has announced today that it is to enter into an official partnership with Mansory, as the German company becomes the Official Customisation Studio for Lotus Cars. To celebrate the deal, Lotus will use the Paris motor show in September this year to unveil a new Mansory-ised model.
Mansory will be tasked with creating bespoke bodywork, trim and finishes for the Elise, Exige and Evora, a move that actually seems fitting for a company that bridges the gap between tuning house and full-on coachbuilder. All these models can be covered via our Lotus Car Insurance – we also specialise in Modified car insurance such as those shown here.
Mansory’s connection with Lotus began at the Geneva show in 2011, when the firm presented the Evora Concept Bespoke. Since then Lotus has worked with Mansory on several projects, including the chrome-red Evora GTE ‘Swizz Beatz’ and, most recently, the raw carbon-fibre Lotus F1 Team Evora GTE.
