Lotus Evora Carbon Concept

At the 80th Geneva International Motor Show, Lotus presents the Evora Carbon Concept. The models features stylish carbon fiber, leather and Alcantara interior, aggressive carbon diffuser and an evocative high tech composite body. The concept is finished in an advanced water based pearl-cent paint that contrasts with the exquisitely finished weave on the carbon fiber panels. The styling direction is continued with a structural carbon fiber roof, Lotus Motorsport influenced carbon diffuser and carbon splitter. The new Carbon Concept car retains the same class leading handling and high tech aluminum bonded and extruded of the production car. The model combines the luster of the carbon panels with perforated leather and matt Alcantara. The bespoke interior uses grey Alcantara to cover the foot-well, dashboard and roof. All the power is being transferred to the roar through diamond cut forged 19-inch alloy wheels both for the front and rear covered in Pirelli P-Zero Corsa tires measuring 235 / 35 on the front axle and 285 / 30 on the rear one. These actually offer the new Evora Carbon Concept a more purposeful appearance. The design of the concept car features exotic, high tech materials that offer a good synergy with the Lotus brand image expressing their motorsport heritage and history of stylish sports cars for which Lotus are renewed. This is what Director of Lotus Design, Donato Coco declared.
