What good is it having an F1 team to your name if you can't leverage it into a special edition sportscar and have the world champion you just signed unveil it in front of the gathered masses? That's what Lotus seems to be thinking as the British automaker is reportedly preparing to unveil a special edition Evora at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.

The model in question – expected to be joined by a convertible Evora as well – is tipped to be based on the top-spec, 444-horsepower Evora GTE, but with the black and gold livery featured on the company's F1 cars... as well as its other racing cars currently proliferating into racing series around the world.

The car will reportedly be unveiled by Kimi Raikkonen, the 2007 Formula One world champion recently signed to return to F1 with Lotus this year. However fast Kimi is, however, the paparazzi seem to be faster as the car in question was snapped at the Jerez circuit in Spain ahead of its official unveiling just over a week from now.

      Now that is what I'm talking about. I like this much mor than the GP version. Love teh GTE fron grill. Looks much more aggressive. I always thought the GP homage to the JPS just looked cheap on the Evora, Buthe teh colors are better put together in this version. I think it was the all gold wheels on teh GP that turned me off most. The 2 color wheel on this model looks much better IMHO. And 444HP Oh Yes

      Lotus's are poormen's Ferraris. I always have to laugh when I see someone driving around in one thinking they are cool.
