Koenigsegg - Lotus cooperation (Evora parts)?

Recommended Posts

Today at another place in GB I saw a link related to the Shanghai motor show. Seeing the Koenigsegg Agera I wondered if they use parts of the Evora ???- esp front lights, front fenders, roof (see the view from above on their homepage), windscreen (also the main parts of the int / curve of the door / dashboard) look like Evora parts.

 

We have read about the cooperation spyker / Lotus (which I first confused with Koenigsegg...) but does anybody know about a cooperation koenigsegg / Lotus?

In the meantime I have read that they claim to make all parts on their own or that they are made for them .....but the design? The parts mentioned above look very similar to me!

Koenigsegg uses bespoke parts that are designed by them for their use only, however some parts are made in the UK, notably the carbon tub and the base engine block i believe.

 

You should watch their Drive series on http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLHa6PXrV-yIgnXSYFT07BouKhEhyFuWnf!

First: Thanks to jimmybondi - that you give me the opportunity to enlarge my "Acronym account"

 

Second: Thanks to the "AcronymFinder" :w00t:

TTIWWP stands for This Thread Is Worthless Without Pictures. This definition appears very rarely.
 

Third (as requested):

Esp. the layout of the windscreen (like a "visor") is similar in my eyes - well I think all the visor-style windscreens go back to the lancia stratos or some racing cars from the 60ies.

You're welcome :)

 

Yes, headlights do look similar, there also some other styling clues. Nowadays it is impossible to present a design which hasn't been around before, I guess...

 

Koenigsegg use bespoke parts, right - but I don't think it would hurt their status much to grab some readymade parts.

 

 

PS: while it is a nice design work, it is not as refined as the lines of an Evora. But I am biased...
