Paul Chapman, managing director at Chaplane, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to become one of a very select band of Approved facilities for the Lotus brand, we have been working very hard this year to achieve the required technical and commercial standards that Lotus have set us, so to receive this is at this time is a great honour and testament to our business strategy of being aligned to vehicle manufacturers. It’s great to see the rapid growth that Lotus is undertaking and be part of this journey.”

Jordan Pool, parts manager at Lotus Essex, added: “For me, nominating a bodyshop for Lotus was complete no-brainer. Chaplane have been our dealership’s preferred repair partner for over 15 years and have carried out countless repairs, ceramic coatings and body upgrades on our behalf. The knowledge of handing the keys over and having complete peace of mind the car will return as good as new every time is totally invaluable. We look forward to continuing our relationship as a new generation of Lotus cars hit the road.”
