Norwich City Football Club’s Principal Partner, Lotus Cars, has generously donated a Lotus Elise Sport 240 Final Edition for a competition to support the Community Sports Foundation.
Production of the iconic Lotus Elise is ending after 25 years and the competition prize is the first car to be built from the Final Edition range.
The car has two unique elements of Norwich City FC detail: exterior club crest decals, and club crest footwell mats on both the driver and passenger sides.*
It comes with a customised Certificate of Provenance pack from Lotus and will be provided with a new bespoke Lotus Elise car cover.
The competition winner will also have an exclusive handover day at Lotus HQ in Hethel, which includes a private factory tour and test track experience.
#DrivingInclusion for people with disabilities
All proceeds from the competition will help the Foundation to continue our work to provide inclusive environments for people with disabilities in Norfolk.
Jake Humphrey, TV presenter and trustee of the Foundation, was on hand to unveil the car and further explain the significance of the competition.
“This is an incredible prize; all of the Elise Final Edition cars have been snapped up, so this is the only way to get your hands on one.
“As a trustee of the charity, I have seen first-hand the importance of its work and the impact it has on people in Norfolk.
“Without vital fundraising this work would stop, and many across Norfolk would be deprived of our support.
“We want to thank Lotus Cars for this incredible opportunity to boost our fundraising this year.”
Matt Windle, Managing Director, Lotus Cars, said:
“At Lotus, we are great supporters of the power of sport, not only for mental and physical wellbeing, but also how it can help inclusiveness amongst the community. Providing this unique version of the Lotus Elise, a sports car that is so admired around the world, will enable even more people in the region from around the county to benefit from the wonderful work of the Community Sports Foundation.
