The Show Must Go On: Lotus is continuing to offer us new incarnation of the Evora. This time we are talking about a one-off example of the car that is dedicate to the late Freddie Mercury.{Ad]

The special Evora is dressed in pearl white using red and gold details, as well as Queen's signature. The British carmaker has worked on the little details that matter, such as the color scheme of the interior, which is inspired from the superstar's 1986 stage costume, while the seats come with a Union Jack on their back sides.

This "Don't stop me now!" Evora will be auctioned off for charity as part of the celebrations linked to Freddie's 65 birthday event at the Savoy Hotel. The proceeds will go to the Mercury phoenix trust, which fights HIV AIDS and was founded by Queen members Brian May, Roger Taylor and manager Jim Beach after the superstar passed away.

"Our friends at Lotus have donated a stunning Evora S for our auction which I know will be a massive fund-raiser for the Mercury Phoenix Trust. We cannot thank them enough for their generous support on what is a very special occasion for everyone who knew and loved Freddie." Brian May said, thanking the British automaker for its support.

The auction is scheduled to take place on September 5, but you can also participate online by following this link.
