Lotus Evora - the first delivered to an UK buyer

A British buyer has got its keys finally to his Lotus Evora Storm Titanium, the 1st ever delivered. Matthew Melling Twickenham got the vehicle from the Director of Lotus Cars Limited - Lotus Headquarters, Luke Bennett where the car was hand made.

Lotus has orders now for the upcoming five months production, that made it hire an extra 150 manufacturing staff, having a complete level of production expected to be full at the end of this year in November.

'It is quite an emotional time to deliver the first Lotus Evora to Mr. Melling. The whole team has worked incredibly hard to design, engineer and produce such a stunning and high performing sportscar and it is a great feeling to hand over the keys to the first customer today' affirmed the Director of Lotus Cars Limited - Luke Bennett.

Bennet continued 'The Evora has won many awards around the world already so we are not surprised that there is high demand for the car and I am sure that each customer who receives their car will be delighted with their purchase'.

'I was determined to be the first in the world to get my hands on an Evora so with Stratton Motor Company’s help, I laid down my deposit within seconds of the order books being opened last year. I have read all the press reviews of the Evora and am so excited about getting behind the wheel – what a great start to September!' affirmed Matthew Melling, enthusiastic first Lotus Evora owner.
