German craftsman, Mansory, will grant lotus enthusiasts the ultimate tailoring service. And while Lotus has collaborated with Mansory in the past on a range of special editions projects, the Dou's new partnership is planning to unveil an exciting new model at Paris Motor Show in September this year.

Assigned to special projects, Mansory will contribute bodywork, trim and special finishes for Lotus' acclaimed model range; the Elise, Exige and Evora. As the Official Customization Studio, Mansory is working closely with Lotus' engineers and designers to produce modifications that scream individuality and quality.

Since the exciting reaction to the Evora Concept Bespoke at the 2011 Geneva expo, Lotus and Mansory have collaborated on several projects together, principally the road-going Evora GTE - the most powerful Lotus yet - which prompted a deluge of international orders. Specials followed: The chrome-red Evora GTE by Swizz Beatz and, most recently, the raw carbon-fiber Lotus F1 Team Evora GTE, have claimed poster space on teenagers' bedroom walls and sparked frenzy among supercar collectors desperate to get their hands on these extremely limited-edition models.

Eponymous founder Kourosh Mansory has always been passionate about British luxury and sports cars. He spent many years in England in order to absorb vehicular values such as tradition, craftsmanship, and state-of-the-art engineering.

Kourosh Mansory, Owner, Mansory Design and Holding GmbH: "At Mansory, we have always been passionate about British cars, and the cooperation with Lotus is the perfect partnership as it meets our quality standard of production on the highest technical level combined with masterly craftsmanship and the most precious materials. As the Official Lotus Customization Studio, we amplify the existing options with harmonically designed aerodynamics and ultra-light aluminum rims. High-quality accessories and stylish interior fittings complete the Mansory assortment."

Wolf Zimmerman, Chief Technical Officer, Group Lotus: "Mansory are leaders in their field, and having worked closely with them on the Evora GTE and the special editions we've unveiled recently, we now wish to take the partnership to an official level. Together, I am confident we will continue to produce outstanding sports cars, with the bespoke qualities that many of our discerning customers look for."

Maurizio Parlato, Commercial Director, Group Lotus: "There's a strong market for official customization, and Mansory is the perfect partner in ensuring the quality and style we strive to maintain at Lotus. For customers who are seeking Lotus' principals of speed, innovation and fun, but with added exclusivity, our Official Customisation Studio is the answer. The Lotus Evora GTE is a great illustration of what is to come. The car has already prompted around 250 orders and leads between China and Europe and we expect it to have a very successful future as the top of the range Evora."
