Donato Coco leaves Lotus as head of design, will be replaced by Russell Carr

Article by Christian A., on October 23, 2014

After Dany Bahar’s departure from Lotus, another key person will leave the company at the end of this month. Donato Coco a.k.a. Lotus Cars design boss will leave the company and he will be replaced by Russell Carr, company’s current design manager.

Donato Coco arrived at Lotus in 2009 and he is the man responsible for the impressive concepts unveiled by Lotus at the 2010 Paris Motor Show, such as the Eterne Concept, Elite Concept, Esprit Concept, Elise Concept, Elan Concept or the City Car Concept.

Meanwhile, Carr will return at his former role as head of design at Lotus and for those who don’t know, he is the one responsible for the Lotus Evora.

The bad news is that none of the concepts that were unveiled at the 2010 Paris Motor Show will reach production this is really disappointing as the vehicles were absolutely impressive.

In a statement, Lotus CEO Jean-Marc Gales said that Carr already proved track-record of producing distinctive and compelling designs for Lotus over the years. That’s right, no argue here but do compare the concept cars created by Donato Coco with the Evora and you will see the difference between the two designers.
