Award given to Lotus for having “revolutionised and disrupted its sector” during the last year

Ongoing enhancements to the brand, including new corporate identity and ‘For the Drivers’ tagline, singled out for praise

Lotus CEO Phil Popham paid tribute to employees working tirelessly to take the brand to new levels of success

(Hethel, UK – 29 October 2019) – Lotus has won the prestigious ‘Luxury Brand of the Year’ award at the annual Luxury Briefing Awards 2019. The car maker was honoured at a gala ceremony staged at The Savoy, London in front of more than 350 VIP guests.

 

Founded in 1996, Luxury Briefing provides industry reports, analysis and expert opinion across all sectors of the luxury industry. ‘Luxury Brand of the Year’ is one of the top awards and chosen by the organisation’s board of directors. In selecting Lotus, Sir Eric Peacock, Chairman of Luxury Briefing, said Lotus has “revolutionised and disrupted its sector by blowing away all boundaries and limitations with an energetic burst of innovation and repositioning”.

 

Praise was given for ongoing enhancements to the Lotus brand, which to date have included a new corporate identity, new ‘For the Drivers’ brand tag line, and a complete overhaul of its digital presence. Sir Eric acknowledged Lotus’ commitment to top-level motorsport through the Evora GT4 Concept, the Premier League football partnership with Norwich City, and a collaboration on elite cycling performance through the expanding Lotus Engineering consultancy.

 

However, what excited the Luxury Briefing team most was the launch of the all-electric Lotus Evija hypercar. Sir Eric called it “a game-changer of a new car” which had raised the brand’s global profile massively. It marks the start of an ambitious and exciting new product plan that will grow the brand over the next decade.

 

Phil Popham, CEO, Lotus cars, collected the award and commented: “We are a performance car company with bold ambitions for the future, so to be recognised and honoured as a luxury brand at this stage of our journey is a fantastic achievement. This award is for everyone in the Lotus family around the world who is working tirelessly to grow our brand and achieve new levels of success. I’m confident it will the first of many from outside the automotive sector.”

 

Other brands recognised at the awards include Princess Yachts, Hennessey XO, Selfridges, Fortnum & Mason, Timothy Oulton, Creed Boutique, Aston Martin and Bentley.

  • Tyre options for the S3 elise

    Hi all I've bean reading around the forums as I'll be needing new tyres in the next few months but I can't come to any conclusions on what to do.   My S3 has 175/55/16 fronts which means AD07's right... but haven't they been discontinued? So next option would be the current AD08rs but they don't come in the right size, only 205/45/16's. There's no way they would fit, right???   What are my options for good road tyres if I don't want old stock AD07's.

    Elise S2 door waist seals

    Hi  I am currently looking at the possibility of getting a number of Elise s2 door waist seal made up. I have sought a manufacturer that is able to produce but requires considerable investment in tooling and getting first batch in stock. This all came about after trying to source a seal for my S2 111, difficult to find and crazy prices. Also believe the same seals can be used on the Vauxhall vx220. would anybody out there be interested, will be trying to get them on the market for less

    Elise T689JRJ

    Does anyone on here own Elise T689JRJ ?  I recently bought an Elan M100 and amongst the paperwork for the Elan was some for the above Elise. Appears the owner, owned an M100 and Elise at the same time and got the paperwork mixed up. If you own the Elise PM me and I will send you the paperwork. Includes invoice for its first service. Owner was based in Buxton in 1999.
