Lotus Evora S Freddie Mercury Special Edition

Lotus shocked the world’s press this week with a special edition of the Evora S, known as the ‘Freddie Mercury Edition’.

Although it has the same engine and general engineering as the standard Evora S, the one-off car, to be auditioned today, has a number of unique and rather quirky features.

Lotus have said the ‘white, red and gold colour scheme inspired by the iconic costume Freddie work for the 1986 “Magic Tour”

‘The front fender references the Montreux Freddie Memorial statue with the line “Lover of life. Singer of songs,” taken from the statue’s inscription.’

The interior is all yellow, again referencing the great man himself, and his costume from the 1986 tour.

The proceeds from the auction will be given to the Mercury Phoenix Trust.
