A tribute to Jim Clark
Made entirely by hand, the Lotus Evora GT410 Jim Clark Trust special edition aims to pay homage to Jim Clark (Scottish pilot who failed behind the wheel 50 years ago) and to raise funds to finance the new museum named after him. And in the Lotus Elan that was his property, this special finds inspiration, since it takes up the red and silver colors of the specimen he possessed.
They say about it
An internal Scottish environment (which celebrates the birth of the pilot) characterizes the interior of the Lotus Evora GT410 Jim Clark Trust special edition, which Hazel Chapman describes (after having personally observed with his son Clive): “70 years ago I would not have never imagined that there would be a 100,000th Lotus. I am immensely proud of Colin’s company and legacy. Today, Lotus continues to build fantastic sports cars and is moved to see this car in person. ”
