reported Group Lotus
had been served a winding-up order and that liquidation of
the umbrella company was a possibility. The story originated from Autocar which was tipped off that the name of Group Lotus, comprising of Lotus Cars, Lotus
and Lotus Engineering, had appeared on the Companies Court Winding
Up list that was to be heard by the High Court. Lotus has been
quick to quash the rumor, stating that it is not being liquidated.
