Lotus Cars has its first dealership in London for six years, as Hexagon Lotus was officially opened in South Kensington.

Hexagon is not new to Lotus, having been a Lotus dealer from 1964 to 1976. Its reintroduction offers customers two Lotus dealerships in London, with its headquarters in East Finchley as well as South Kensington.

Jean-Marc Gales, the CEO of Group Lotus plc, 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 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.’

Paul Michaels, chairman of Hexagon Classics said: ‘We decided to rejoin Lotus after nearly 40 years as we can see a very exciting future for Lotus and we want to be part of it.

‘Many of our customers already appreciate the core values of Lotus sports cars and the forthcoming introduction of the all-new Evora 400 is already attracting a huge amount of attention.

‘We are delighted to be able to bring this and the stunning Lotus Elise and Exige cars to the London motoring scene.’
