We have bad news for Lotus fans as the company dismissed Dany Bahar for spending irregularities. For those who don’t know, Bahar was suspended last month due an investigation into his expenses. The official press release said that Bahar will be replaced by Aslam Farikullah with immediate effect. Lotus has more than 1,000 workers at its headquarters located in easter England.
DRB-HICOM group managing director Mohd Khamil Jamil but also the chairman of Lotus said that the Malaysian owner is commited to ensure the ongoing and future business operations of the Lotus Group.
Before Lotus, Dany Bahar worked in marketing for Red Bull and Ferrari and moved to the British manufacturer who now fired him after Proton agreed a dael for Malaysian aviation entrepreneur Tony Fernandes to enter Formula One as Lotus Racing.
The bad news is that Bahar had big plans for Lotus as the company created six concept cars - 2014 Elite, 2013 Elan Concept, 2013 Esprit, 2015 Eterne, 2015 Elise Concept and the City Car - which were supposed to enter production as soon as possible. Now, nobody knows if or when will we see these cars.
