    Matthew Melling of Twickenham, UK received the keys of a Storm Titanium Lotus Evora from Luke Bennett, Director of Lotus Cars Limited at the Lotus Headquarters where the new mid-engined 2+2 sportscar is hand built.
    Many Lotus dealers around the world have already received their demonstrators and Lotus has, so far, received orders for the next 5 months of production. Demand for Lotus’ award winning Evora has meant that 150 extra new manufacturing staff have been recruited to support assembly operations in Norfolk, UK, a very positive sign at a time when the global motor industry faces huge challenges. Full production is expected to reach the maximum rate by the end of November 2009.
    Luke Bennett, Director of Lotus Cars Limited said, “It is quite an emotional time to deliver the first Lotus Evora to Mr. Melling. The whole team has worked incredibly hard to design, engineer and produce such a stunning and high performing sportscar and it is a great feeling to hand over the keys to the first customer today. The Evora has won many awards around the world already so we are not surprised that there is high demand for the car and I am sure that each customer who receives their car will be delighted with their purchase.”
    Matthew Melling, a customer of Stratton Motor Company, in Norfolk said, “I was determined to be the first in the world to get my hands on an Evora so with Stratton Motor Company’s help, I laid down my deposit within seconds of the order books being opened last year. I have read all the press reviews of the Evora and am so excited about getting behind the wheel – what a great start to September!”

      kalau baca background dia memang hebat. bekas naib presedin di Ferrari. Harap2 Dany Bahar boleh sumbangkan pengalaman dan kepakarannya di Ferrari untuk memajukan Lotus setaraf Ferrari. Harap2 volume jualan Lotus juga leh meningkat mendadak

      Apapun macam aku byk cakap sebelum ni, Proton haruslah pindah sesegera mungkin ibu pejabat Lotus ke Malaysia agar seluruh masyarakat dunia tahu Lotus sekarang bukan lagi milik Britain tapi milik 100% rakyat Malaysia melalui Proton Holding, sebuah entiti GLC milik rakyat Malaysia melalui Khazanah Holding. kalau kita pindah ke Malaysia konpem byk kebaikan kita dpt. kos operasi Proton pun kurang sebab tak payah nak berulang alik ke Britain untuk design kereta baru dan enjin baru dll. Boleh juga tubuh akademi Lotus – Proton untuk tingkatkan kemahiran rakyat Malaysia. Byk pakar2 tempatan yg enggan tinggalkan negara tersayang dpt diserap bekerja dlm Lotus. dan byk lagi la
