Parks Motor Group takes on Lotus franchise in western Scotland

Time 1 year ago

Lotus Cars is now represented in western Scotland for the first time in 15 years.

Park’s Motor Group, which already represents 25 manufacturers including Bentley, Lamborghini and McLaren, has taken on the Lotus franchise north of the boarder.

Its Hamilton-based showroom will open to sales and service customers next month, and will offer Elise, Exige and Evora models as well as finance services.

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

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.”

Geoff Dowding, executive director, sales and aftersales, Lotus Cars, added: ‘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.’
