This is the brand new Lotus Emira and a very first look to check it out! Join me in the studio to take a full tour around the game changing sports car from the British marque and run through all of the details.

Following on the heels from the full EV hypercar, the Lotus Evija, the Emira brings a full update and replacement to the recent models; Elise, Exige and Evora. It also marks the start of a collaboration and technical partnership with AMG to offer the 2.0l turbo 4-cylinder in a mid-engine position, or alternatively available with the traditional Toyota 3.5l supercharged V6. The engines will offer between 360 and 400hp with a host of different gearboxes between them; manual, automatic and DCT, with 0-62mph (100km/h) taking less than 4.5 seconds and a top speed up to 180mph (290km/h), with a target lightest weight of only 1,405kg.

However, the most striking announcement is that prices start from £60,000 (€72,000) for a totally new sports car that carries serious supercar looks and visual drama. In fact, numerous of the design cues have filtered down from the flagship Evija, with a First Edition arriving with a loaded specification to begin the customer deliveries in Spring 2022.

Not only that, but the Emira brings a new generation of usability for Lotus, with ADAS functionality, large screens for the infotainment and dashboard, along with many comfort and convenience features that were often lacking in previous models. There's no question this is a huge leap forward, and at this price point it bodes very well for a promising future for Lotus cars.

Thanks for watching, Tim

    Looks very good. Big step for Lotus, but it is not real Lotus any moore. Few things Chapman would have hated: far too heavy, electric seats, power mirrors, power windows, infotainment systems. Why these things? Too much luxury. Esprit was made for drivers, Emira is made for football players. Todays Ferrari have Same problems too!

    Remember people £60,000 uk translates to $83,445.97 US dollars. And you can get a Corvette Here state side for just under $60,000 grand with the basic most non-optioned spec. But just to note.. The C8 Corvette (now globally sold car) costs £81,000 pounds in the UK ($112,652.07 US) So the UK is paying twice as much for the C8, we do not yet know how much the Emira will cost here in the US. we only know the current conversion in cost.

    So Lotus said Emira is their last ever ICE car. No Elise replacement is happening then? The future of Lotus is to be about bigger, much heavier and far more expensive Evora size cars? Emira isn't any more powerful than an Evora 400 either. Oh dear.

  85. Matt M

    Matt MPřed 24 dny

    Hmm, Lotus or Corvette..really a tough one for me. while the Emira is underpowered it’s also quite light in comparison to the Base model Stingray and much smoother lines. The interior is kinda 💩 but, exterior is beautiful. The price is on point too, but commands a 20k+ premium over the C8.

  92. Matt M

    Matt MPřed 24 dny

    Design wise, it looks better than the hard edges of the Vette, but the interior looks dated already, it’s also incredibly underpowered and inferior performance wise (at least on paper). At 300lbs lighter that may not be an issue though despite that disparity in the numbers. I am in line for the Z06, have been for 2 years, which will probably be in the Emira price range ..but if I had to choose between the base C8 and this, I’d probably choose this because it’s pretty. Lol!

  104. Alec Day

    Alec DayPřed 24 dny

    $83K US starting is going to make it a true C8 Corvette competitor as it is the same price as a slightly higher speced model of the car. I mean it is just as practical, has the same engine placement, it looks great (arguably better than the C8) and it is still a very quick car from the factory with similar horspower with it being 400 and the C8 coming in st 500 horses. The only thing that you would be missing is the roar of the V8 but sound doesn't matter as long as it is a car that is fun to drive. I would love to see a head-to-head comparison betwen the C8 Corvette and the Emira. I mean they should be really similar to each other as they are on paper so I aam expecting similar Real-world performance between the 2 cars.
