The time has arrived… The moment we’ve been waiting for is here… The man specifically hired by Lotus CEO, Dany Bahar, to take Lotus deeper into the urban realms of cool has collaborated with the Hethel sportscar concern to produce, in his own words, ‘the first colour-chrome car in the world..!’… Rrrright then.
And that, ladies and gents, is exactly what the ‘Swizz Beatz Special Edition’ Evora GTE is… a Lotus with some flashy paint (which might even be a wrap).
Now, on the face of it you wouldn’t be too far into the wrong by declaring all of this a bit daft, but when you consider that the GTE emits a healthy 444bhp from its V6 and has a sequential gearbox amongst other lightweight goodies, you almost sigh a bit of relief for Lotus’s most-powerful road-going production car ever built – The real important bits are still there and remain unchanged.
So yeah, Swizz, we don’t mind your… um, hard-work… one bit. We’re actually quite a-ok with just a bumper sticker and some pimpin’ paint…
