Lotus unveils Evora GTE 'By Swizz Beatz'

Music producer Swizz Beatz has obviously been putting the hours in for his new job at Lotus, as he and Lotus CEO Dany Bahar have unveiled the first fruit of their creative union.

Which is? A, er, red chrome-look version of the new Evora GTE, which possibly even a wrap. That's it.

On the face of it, that seems a bit rubbish, but when you think about it it's almost certainly a good thing. This is because the 444hp V6-powered Evora GTE, with its sequential gearbox, lightweight forged alloy rims with centre lock hubs, Pirelli P-Zero Corsa tyres and status as the most powerful production Lotus road car ever built, is otherwise unchanged.

And because the GTE will almost certainly be a blinder (if our drive of the GT4 racer is anything to go by), the fact that Swizz hasn't meddled with the mechanicals bothers us not one jot...

    I just gagged on my own hate. I don't understand this.

    What in the name of Marty McFly is that thing nailed to the back of it?
