Not all rock and roll stars are all about sex and drugs. Roger Daltrey, the lead singer of The Who, has worked with the Teenage Cancer Trust since 2000 to help raise money to give teenage cancer patients the support they need. Now, Daltrey has teamed up with Lotus to design a one-off Evora S model to auction off with proceeds going to the charity.
The 2012 Evora S being auctioned uses the stock supercharged 345-hp V-6 engine and is equipped with Lotus’ Intelligent Precision Shift six-speed automatic transmission and the optional rear seat. Factory options on the car include the Tech Pack with an upgraded sound system with seven-inch touchscreen, rear parking sensors, Bluetooth, USB input, cruise control, and a tire pressure monitoring system; and the Premium Pack with upgraded interior leather and materials, heated front seats, and carbon fiber trim. The car also has the optional reversing camera as well.
Differentiating the one-off from other Evoras are diamond-cut forged alloy wheels, metallic black paint, a monochromatic Union Jack on the rear spoiler, thin red pinstriping on the lower body, and the red, white, and blue bulls eye logo of The Who on the front quarter panels and rear fascia. The entire interior has been done in red leather, with the seats in black leather with red stitching. The seatbacks have also been decked on in monochrome Union Jacks as well. Finishing off the special edition is Daltrey’s signature – which appears on the hood – and the Teenage Cancer Trust’s logo on the rear window.
The special-edition Evora S is said to be worth around £74,000 and Bonhams is expecting around £50-70,000 for the car at auction later this week in Surrey, England.
