History

A significant anniversary requires a significant car and, Lotus is marking 50 years since the founding of its famous factory with a limited Hethel Edition of its benchmark Evora 400.

Unique Options

As well as marking 50 years in Norfolk, the Hethel Edition allows Lotus fans to enjoy some of the company’s iconic colour schemes.

Buyers can choose between Essex Blue, Motorsport Black, and Racing Green when ordering the Hethel Edition 400, with either black or red leather or Alcantara interior trim available depending on bodywork colour.

Light Weight

Winning the praise of customers and the motoring press since its launch, the Evora 400 weighs in at just 1,395 kg and epitomises Lotus’ approach to efficient engineering.

Lotus Exclusive

The Hethel Edition 400 perfectly illustrates how customers can personalise their vehicle through the Lotus Exclusive programme.

Developed by the Lotus Design team, the programme combines traditional British craftsmanship with modern design.

It has been conceived to inspire customers, allowing them to tailor vehicles to their personal taste.

With a comprehensive array of options, it provides an alluring alternative to an off-the-peg sports car.
