Lotus appoints new retailer for performance car sales and service in Scotland

    •    Park’s Lotus to open in Hamilton this summer for sales and service
    •    New Lotus retailer in the west of Scotland for the first time in 15 years
    •    Lotus Evora GT410 – the latest model for everyday driving – takes centre stage in the showroom

(Hethel, UK – 29 July 2020) – Scotland has fantastic roads, spectacular scenery… and now an all-new Lotus retailer so performance car fans can make the most of both.

Park’s Lotus is located in Hamilton and will open its doors to sales and service customers during August. It marks the first time in 15 years that Lotus has had a retailer in the west of Scotland.

The new business is part of the long-established Park’s Motor Group, which already represents a number of sports, premium and luxury car companies from sites throughout Scotland and the north of England.

Full contact details for the new Park’s Lotus retailer are:

Park’s Lotus
143-159 Almada St
Hamilton
Glasgow
ML3 0ET

Telephone: 01698 303770

Geoff Dowding, Executive Director, Sales and Aftersales, Lotus Cars, commented: “This new Lotus sales and service centre in Hamilton is a wonderful addition to our UK network. Despite the challenges of the last few months, we’ve worked efficiently with the team at Park’s to ensure our current and future customers in Scotland have the facilities and support they need.”

Ross Park, director of Park’s Motor Group, said: “We’re delighted to add Lotus to our portfolio of performance car brands. We know it has a proud history and an exciting future, and we’re thrilled to be part of that. Lotus is a valuable addition to the Park’s family, offering even greater choice to our customers.”

The showroom is in the town of Hamilton, to the south-east of central Glasgow. Taking pride of place will be the newest Lotus, the Evora GT410, which has been designed to be a more usable ‘everyday’ sports car. It comes with an enhanced specification over the existing GT410 Sport, providing owners with improved usability and a new level of driving comfort. Numerous features have moved from the Evora’s options list to become part of its standard specification, resulting in exceptional value for money.

Also available through Park’s Lotus are the latest versions of the Lotus Elise, a true performance icon, and the Lotus Exige, a genuine track-day car for the road.

Park’s Lotus will offer customers a full range of financial services products through FCA Bank, the new financial partner to Lotus which was announced earlier this month.

Lotus has always enjoyed a strong relationship with Scotland, through the race team’s links to legendary driver Jim Clark and our support of the Jim Clark Motorsport Museum in Duns, Scottish Borders.
