Freddie Mercury honored by Lotus with special edition of Evora S model

Since this year marks what would have been Freddie’s 65th birthday, Lotus has created a special edition of the Evora S model as a tribute to the lead dinger of Queen.

On the exterior, the Evora model has a pearl white with red and gold racing stripes painting inspired by Mercury’s costume in the “Magic Tour” of 1986. The front fenders wear a representation of the sentence on the singer’s memorial statue in Montreux: “Lover of life. Singer of songs.”

As for the inside, it dons a yellow scheme with union flags on the backs of the seats.

Proceeds from the sale to be held on Monday at the Savoy Hotel in London , will be donated to the Mercury Phoenix Trust association that fights against AIDS.
