To help mark the 50th anniversary of their factory and headquarters in Hethel, Lotus has introduced a limited edition version of the Evora 400 - called the Blue & Orange Edition - which has been designed by Lotus fans. As the name suggests, it has been finished in a distinctive blue and orange colour scheme, which was inspired by the famous racing colours first seen in the 1960’s.
