Many of our customers already appreciate the core values of Lotus sports cars and the forthcoming introduction of the all-new Evora 400 is already attracting a huge amount of attention. We are delighted to be able to bring this and the stunning Lotus Elise and Exige cars to the London motoring scene.”
