Lotus Evora Carbon Concept

The Lotus Evora Carbon Concept was revealed at the Geneva Motor Show today. As the name suggests the Lotus Evora Carbon Concept makes use of fine materials like carbon fibre as well as alcantara leather at the interior while no mechanical improvements have been performed.

So at the exterior the Lotus Evora Carbon Concept features carbon fiber front panels, a structural carbon fibre roof, an aggressive looking carbon diffuser plus a water based pearlesent body paint.

The overall appearance is completed by a set of 19 inch alloy wheels wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero Corsa performance tires.

Inside the Lotus Evora Carbon Concept the manufacturer uses carbon inserts combined with matt alcantara that covers the seats, the footwell, dashboard and roof.

Evora Carbon Concept Makes Motorshow Debut

The multi-award winning Lotus Evora provides the basis of the stunning carbon design concept unveiled at the 80th Geneva Motorshow. The car boasts a stylish carbon fibre, leather and alcantara interior, aggressive carbon diffuser and an evocative high tech composite body.

The Evora Carbon Concept car emphasises Lotus' motorsport pedigree, utilising beautiful high quality materials with exposed carbon fibre and plush alcantara. The striking white concept car is finished in an advanced water based pearlesent paint that contrasts with the exquisitely finished weave on the carbon fibre 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
fibre roof, Lotus Motorsport influenced carbon diffuser and carbon splitter. The Evora Carbon Concept car retains the same class leading handling and high tech aluminium bonded and extruded chassis of the production car.

The contemporary interior of the Evora Carbon Concept car combines the lustre of the carbon panels with perforated leather and matt 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 fibre to provide a satisfying sensory experience.

The Evora Carbon Concept car has diamond cut forged 19" alloy wheels front and rear, shod with Pirelli P-Zero Corsa tyres (235/35 wide front and 285/30 wide rear). The wheels and tyres give the Evora real presence filling the wheel arches and giving the car a purposeful appearance.

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."
