Having already partnered with musician and producer Swizz Beatz, Lotus Cars has now joined forces with German tuning company Mansory Design. Lotus has enlisted Mansory as its official customization partner, and the two companies will consummate their relationship by launching a new vehicle at the Paris Motor Show later this summer.
Mansory rolled out a modified Lotus Evora at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, and also helped Lotus design the orange Swizz Beatz-edition Evora, as well as a carbon fiber-clad Evora GTE special edition (pictured). Going forward, Mansory will provide bodywork, interior trim, and special finishes for the Lotus Elise, Exige, and Evora sports cars.
"Mansory are leaders in their field," Group Lotus chief technical officer Wolf Zimmerman said in a statement. "Together, I am confident we will continue to produce outstanding sports cars, with the bespoke qualities that many of our discerning customers look for."
Aside from Lotus cars, other recent creations from Mansory include a carbon-fiber, 631-hp Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG, and a McLaren MP4-12C with bold gold wheels. We've come to expect outlandish color schemes and extreme performance claims from the German tuning group, so we're eager to see what Mansory has in store for the trio of Lotus road cars.
