Evora: she's coming down the line!

Yes, the eagerly awaited moment has finally arrived and first production examples of the new Lotus Evora are working their way down the line, something we at Lotus-Central were privileged to witness recently. And what’s more, we are going to share it with you!

The Evora marks a big step forward for Lotus, not just in terms of a move upmarket but also in the way that the car has been brought to build. For example, in days of old, pre-production cars would have lovingly been created in engineering workshops away from the production area, where little thought would often have been given to the practicalities and time taken to put the car together.

This time, however, things have been different, with the pre-production cars being built-up in the main factory, allowing the production personnel to both learn about the new car and even have their input into the process. Now, the production line itself has been installed and cars are being built.

That process begins with the arrival of the pre-assembled aluminium chassis from Lotus Lightweight Structures in Worcester – previously an independent supplier to Lotus but now owned by the company. An amusing statistic to put things into perspective is that the chassis weighs about the same as 1,700 drink cans!
