Lotus and Mansory have announced a new partnership that will have the two companies collaborating on future projects.

Details are limited, but Mansory will become Lotus' "official customization studio." As such, Mansory will "contribute bodywork, trim and special finishes" for the Elise, Exige and Evora.

In a statement, Lotus Chief Technical Officer Wolf Zimmerman said "Mansory are leaders in their field, and having worked closely with them on the Evora GTE and the special editions we've unveiled recently, we now wish to take the partnership to an official level. Together, I am confident we will continue to produce outstanding sports cars, with the bespoke qualities that many of our discerning customers look for."

To celebrate the partnership, the two companies will introduce a new concept at the Paris Motor Show in September.
