Lotus has celebrated the last of the Elise, Exige and Evora models. The cars are pictured on site with some of the Lotus team, and will be discontinued, to allow production of the all new Emira.
Lotus is launching a new Certificate of Provenance programme, revealing the first recipient as a stunning and celebrated Turbo Esprit that was the final ‘company car’ of Lotus founder Colin Chapman. The 1981 model, which was also driven by UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher during a visit to Norfolk, has recently been acquired by Lotus. Following a sympathetic restoration it will join the company’s collection.
