Lotus Cars, in partnership with Savile Row tailor Gieves & Hawkes, last week rolled out a car tailor-made (sorry…) for the modern secret agent - the Lotus Exige "Espionage."
Designed by Lotus Chief Designer Russell Carr, the one-off car takes design cues from the Gieves & Hawkes iconic navy blue pinstripe "Spy Suit," featuring navy blue bodywork with white pinstripe trim, and interior upholstery and trim employing the pinstripe cloth used in the "Spy Suit." No retractable machine guns or rocket launchers, unfortunately. More details here.
The car was built for the "Truly British" event at the Harrods department store. James Bond wannabes please note - after the event closes, the unique car will go on sale for about $70,000.
