The award-winning Lotus Evora has provided the basis for a carbon design concept unveiled at the 80th Geneva Auto Show this week. The car boasts a stylish carbon fiber, leather and alcantara interior, aggressive carbon rear diffuser and a composite body.
The Evora Carbon Concept car emphasizes Lotus' motorsport pedigree, utilizing high quality materials with exposed carbon fiber and plush alcantara. The striking white concept car is finished in an advanced water-based pearlescent paint that contrasts the exquisitely finished weave on the carbon fiber panels.
The head-turning looks of the Evora Carbon Concept car provide a more purposeful, planted stance with the car looking lower and more aggressive. This styling direction is continued with a structural carbon fiber roof, Lotus Motorsport influenced carbon diffuser and carbon front splitter.
The Carbon Concept retains the same class-leading handling and high-tech aluminum bonded and extruded chassis of the production car.
The contemporary interior of the Evora Carbon Concept car combines the luster of the carbon panels with perforated leather and matte alcantara. The bespoke interior uses swathes of sumptuous grey alcantara to cover the footwell, dashboard and roof. The soft texture of the leather and alcantara are juxtaposed with the hard surfaces of the carbon fiber panels to provide a satisfying sensory experience.
The Evora Carbon Concept car has diamond-cut 19" forged wheels front and rear, shod with Pirelli P-Zero Corsa tires (235/35 front, 285/30 wide rear). Donato Coco, Director of Lotus Design commented, "The design of the Evora Carbon Concept car features exotic, high tech materials that offer a good synergy with the Lotus brand image, expressing our motorsport heritage and history of stylish sports cars for which Lotus are renowned."
