Post "Naomi for Haiti" edition Lotus Evoras fetching half a million at auction

Lotus Evora "Naomi for Haiti" edition - Click above for high-res image gallery

You can mentioned Lotus in the same breath as Ferrari and Porsche, but in terms of price at least, the British sportscar-maker plays in a different league from its Italian and German counterparts. Although exotic in profile, Lotus doesn't churn out the half-million-dollar super-rare flagship hypercars its contemporaries are known for. But for every rule, there's an exception.

Last week we reported on the creation, in conjunction with supermodel Naomi Campbell, of eight special-edition Lotus Evoras to raise money for disaster relief in Haiti. Now the first examples have gone to auction, held during London Fashion Week, and are already fetching nearly $500,000 apiece.

At GBP 320,000 ($493k), the first example went to Campbell's Russian oligarch boyfriend Vladimir Doronin, who was hellbent on securing the #1/8. The second example also sold for over 300k pounds sterling, and the third at an undisclosed price somewhere below the mark. Five examples remain, and are up for auction now at naomiforhaiti.com until February 28. Details in the press release after the jump.
