Lotus unveils new Freddie Mercury Edition car

freddie-mercury-lotus.jpgLotus has created a one-of-a-kind Freddie Mercury-edition Evora S in honor of late Queen singer. It's set to be auctioned off for charity as part of a celebration of what would have been Mercury's 65th birthday. Proceeds from the auction will go to the Mercury Phoenix Trust -- an HIV AIDS charity founded by the singer's bandmates.

On Monday (Sept. 5), Mercury would have been 65 years old. He died from AIDS complications in 1991.
