Lotus Engineered Art by Black Art Graphics

Hi Everyone, my name is Dan and I would like to introduce my company, Black Art Graphics!

We produce 'Engineered Art', official licensed blueprint style technical illustrations of YOUR Lotus, laser engraved on 3mm thick double finished brushed and anodised aluminium plaques.

Lotus_Exige_S_2006_Redwall_096ab2c7-0faa

Each piece is customised to your exact car!

As standard every piece ordered direct though us has the owners name, number plates and VIN incorporated into the design at no extra cost.

Frameless wall mounting!

We believe these look best hung without a frame to accentuate the fact that it is a solid piece of aluminium and not just a fancy poster or canvas print!

As such each comes with a wall mounting kit which attaches directly to the rear of the plate using our ready marked positions!

The Perfect Petrolhead Gift

Presented in a quality Lotus branded presentation box, these make the perfect petrolhead gift for the engineering minded Lotus enthusiast!

The cost?

Prices start at £149 + shipping for our A3 (420 x 297mm) designs, complete with owners name, number plates and VIN incorporated into the drawing.

Coming soon we also have a larger format A2 (594 x 420mm) piece which will be priced at £299, and smaller A4 and A5 designs which come with a stand that slots into the wall mount to allow them to stand up on a desk.

Evora GTE Group Buy

We have had a few requests for the Evora GTE, as you'll probably all be aware this is a very rare model with only 20 being produced, so with an extremely limited market we would pretty much need the majority of GTE owners to purchase one to make it worthwhile doing the photoshoot, creating the drawings and going through the approvals process with Lotus. Based on our previous products, all in the project is likely to take in the region of 50 hours!

As such we are going to run a group buy specifically for the GTE model. These will of course be limited edition pieces numbered 1 to 20, available in A2 format only, priced at £279 and we'll need a minimum of 10 people on board.

Once we've got 10 we'll arrange to shoot the photographs with one of the owners, put the artwork together and send it off to Lotus for approval. It will not be a quick turnaround, from the date of us taking the photos to achieving sign off is likely take a couple of months.

I'll start a list here, if you're interested in getting a limited edition piece done or your Evora GTE let me know and I'll add you to the list!

We did, however the technique I use has changed quite a bit since then which has improved the resulting artwork by some margin! We had only really just started using photographs at that point and although I had an idea of what I needed there wasn't a solid technique to get consistent results, whereas now there is. 

We can always do it at Brands in August of that's the most convenient time/place! :)

Just went to edit the list but seems I can't edit posts after a certain timeframe?

:offtopic: possibly and not trying to steal the GTE boys thunder but do you have a system where you are recording interest in a particular model so when it becomes available you get back in touch with us? I will be interested in a MY10 Evora S for example.

Al - not off topic at all, look at the thread title, this is not GTE / Model specific, only the Group Buy is! :)

I'd be interested in a 2010 NA Evora.

Yes we've got some lists here in the office for interest in certain vehicles. As Lee has shown we did have the Evora signed off last year but the layout has since changed as the full technical specification was proving troublesome at the approvals stage.

As such we need to review the Evora drawings, change the layout and resubmit to Lotus for approval. I'll do my best to get to this ASAP!

Any chance you'll be doing Esprits (especially early cars)?

Yes without a doubt we will get these added to the catalogue in time. I'll get a thread going in the Esprit section so we can start gauging interest and get an idea of the model variants we'll need to cover!

Are we looking to do these for the early Turbo Esprit with large side decals and thick stripes? Also one for the S4s would be good.......for me anyway but I'm confident there will be others too.

Regretfully, we won't be offering any more Lotus models for the foreseeable future.
