After many reports of an Evora facelift under progress from british sportscar outfit Lotus, this turns out to be false.
Instead they are partnering with Mansory who have created the usual masterpiece of automotive beauty by usage of carbon fiber the trade mark of mansory and to be on show at the 2011 Geneva Motorshow.
The UK sports car band is quite clear concerning the rumours on a new Evora facelift and the release of the Mansory Evora. Lotus states:
“Let’s be clear on this: contrary to media reports, what you’ll see in Geneva is NOT an Evora facelift. It’s a taste of the future of Lotus product customisation. Merely the first toe in the water and a showcase of the potential future.”
At last last years Geneva Motor Show Mansory revealed the Rolls Royce and Aston Martin all I can add is I am glad they ran out of blue lacquer.
No word to whether this will be on the Mansory stand or on the Lotus Stand at Geneva…
Here are the clearest and unseen uncomouflaged spy pics of four Nissan GT-R prototypes doing some testing at the Nurburgring circuit in Germany.
One of the uncamouflaged prototypes appears to be a Spec V configured GT-R while the other’s are standard model’s.
The changes are an extra fin sporting an LED light cluster for the daylight running with 6 leds in each cluster, and a more aggressive look in a slight redesined front bumper leading back to the flared and venter rear arches.
Also the car is rumoured to be running more than 500ps we expect around 530ps to be the final figure,also to compliment the daylight running lights there is an addition of a led cluster arrangement on the rear diffuser.
The new GT-R is expected to debut at the Paris Motorshow.
The 2011 Nissan GT-R facelifted model has been seen in a state of undress at the Nurburgring. The pictures show the production ready mule with almost fully revealed, letting the details about the new detailing at the front and back more obvious.
The bumper at the front of the car has got some additional wind spoiling ripples, and the front grill has been reworked on the car.
At the back, vents have been added in the rear bumper fascia behind the rear wheelsto aid the cooling of the tailpipes which sit close to the bumper.
The facelifted version of both GTR will be released in the first part of 2011 and probably be seen at the Frankfurt IAA later this year.
