Lotus have revealed their first all-new car in 25 years, it’s called the Emira, and it comes with two engine choices. The Emira stands as a last bastion of the internal combustion engine for Lotus, as the company has an extensive electrification program lined up for the near future. Therefore the Emira will be the last of it’s kind without any electric help. The Lotus story continues with a new icon: Emira. A car that doesn’t just turn heads but turns conventional thinking on its head, with its exotic supercar looks, everyday usability and enhanced comfort combined with class leading Lotus driving dynamics. It’s everything you’d expect from a Lotus, but like nothing you’d expect. The journey towards a thrilling new future begins here.
Developed for optimal performance, Emira utilises clever aerodynamic packaging as standard. The car has two defined chassis and suspension settings. Tour is tuned for everyday road use, delivering the optimum blend of Lotus dynamic performance and handling with a more comfortable ride. Sports is available with the optional Lotus Drivers Pack and provides a slightly stiffer suspension set-up for enhanced dynamic capability and feel. Lotus Engineering departments have worked with both Michelin and Goodyear to develop 2 new tyre concepts that are larger than those of Evora and bespoke for the Lotus Emira. Goodyear Eagle F1 Supersport tyres enhance all weather usability and ride quality without compromising driving feedback whilst the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres achieve extreme track performance without compromising comfort.
Emira is equipped with full LED exterior lighting as standard. Full LED lighting achieves an incredibly bright crystal white light (75,000 Candelas) that provides excellent visibility, particularly in wet and gloomy conditions or driving at night, while using much less energy than halogen or xenon HID bulbs, which is great for the environment as well as extending the lifetime of your battery. The rear LED taillights are formed in an elongated circular shape that accentuates the vehicles design at the rear and includes a third high level rear brake light centrally mounted in the rear wing.
Everything about Emira is for the drivers, including the engine. The first choice is the familiar Toyota sourced 3.5L supercharged V6 developing 400 hp and 315 lb-ft of torque. The second is a 2.0L turbocharged inline 4 from AMG as found in the A45 hot hatch. This smaller engine pumps out slightly less power and torque at 360 hp and 300 lb-ft respectively, and will be the entry-level option. Emira will offer two powertrains built to deliver blistering performance and maximum thrills. This includes the much-loved and characterful 3.5-litre supercharged V6 and the world’s most powerful production 4 cylinder engine developed in conjunction with AMG and tuned to deliver a heart-racing 360hp.
The everyday sports car that’s high on comfort and functionality. It has twin central cup holders, a phone storage slot, and door bins that can accommodate a 500ml bottle. Practicality also comes from the glovebox, trinket tray, armrest between the seats with USB and 12v ports, plus a console net for bottles or documents. Luggage or other large items can be stored behind the two seats (208 litres) or in the boot to the rear of the engine (151 litres) to accommodate a standard-sized flight case or a set of golf clubs. Packed with the latest technology demanded by the discerning driver. Access to the car’s infotainment system is via a 10.25-inch centrally mounted touch-screen, with an additional 12.3-inch TFT driver’s display behind the steering wheel. All content is exclusive to Lotus and has been designed and developed by an in-house team. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are integrated as standard. First Edition will be fitted with a KEF 10-channel premium audio system which includes three KEF Uni-Q speakers and a fresh air subwoofer providing a pure sound experience.
