Leading London classic and sports car dealer Hexagon now sells the full range of Lotus models from two central London locations, making it the only Lotus dealer inside the M25.
The new partnership sees Lotus regain a dealership presence in London after an absence of six years. Lotus models will now be sold from Hexagon’s East Finchley and South Kensington sites with both locations stocking all models from Elise to Exige to Evora.
The move rekindles an historic relationship, as Hexagon was a Lotus dealer between 1964 and 1976. It also brings Lotus ‘home’ to north London: Hexagon’s headquarters in Fortis Green, East Finchley – where it will offer Lotus servicing and aftercare – is just a stone’s throw from Lotus’ original base of Hornsey, where Colin Chapman and his team built and sold the first models in the 1950s.
With over 50 years of experience selling the finest road cars from brands such as Aston Martin, BMW, Ferrari, Rolls-Royce and Porsche, Lotus customers can expect the very best in sales, service knowledge and aftercare.
Hexagon chairman, Paul Michaels said: “We can see a very exciting future for Lotus and are delighted to welcome the brand back to Hexagon after nearly 40 years. The Exige S and Evora S are very exciting prospects for our customers, of which we’ve already received a large amount of interest.
“The all-new Evora 400, the fastest of the Lotus sports car line-up of the new millennium, is also one of the most hotly anticipated cars of this year. Reintroducing a brand such as Lotus with its rich heritage to the capital’s car scene is a very exciting prospect – one we’re proud to be a part of.”
Group Lotus plc CEO Jean-Marc Gales said: “We are pleased to welcome Hexagon back to Lotus. This is a perfect partnership for us and the opening of Hexagon Lotus brings to an end a six-year period where we have not had a Lotus dealership in London.
“Hexagon Lotus is perfectly located to provide central London customers with the best opportunity to experience Lotus and I know that Paul Michaels and his team will carry the brand with pride. With such a close connection to Lotus in the past, Hexagon fully understands that Lotus stands for benchmark handling, lightweight, efficiency and a pure driving experience.”
