A very strange thing happened this morning; Lotus sent a couple of "accidental" emails announcing the debut of two special Evora models at the Paris Motor Show. And after giving details on the two models, they asked the media to kindly "delete the messages" that were sent in error. Yeah, okay, like we actually believe this was an accident. If it was, then that was a giant mistake made by Lotus PR. Their loss, our gain.
The two new models, theEvora S and the Evora Auto "will be on the stand in Paris alongside the new car(s) not yet announced (let’s maintain the mystery for now!)". And the message continues: "We are aiming to send out a press release about the Evora S and Evora Auto during the last week of this month. I’ve driven a prototype of both the Evora S and the Auto and I can tell you both cars are sensational. The S will be ready for media drives almost straight after Paris, in the US this will take place early next year. We have to be careful with the timing as we have so much going on and the impact from Paris will be big. Just for you to know, and please keep this confidential, our test team will be putting both cars through their paces on the Nordschleife at the Nurburgring from tomorrow on for three days, so we should have some good feedback to work with shortly."
So we guess we’ll see Lotus at Nurburgring in the next days, huh? And, uh, nice job Lotus!
