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.*
Clever engineering means there’s no need for active aerodynamics. As downforce increases with speed Emira generates exceptional grip through corners, delivering precise and connected handling. The engineering doesn’t stop there. Our hugely experienced engineers at Hethel make sure every Emira is tuned to perfection, injecting each one with unmistakable Lotus spirit.
Everything about Emira is for the drivers, including the engine. 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.
Efficient aerodynamics have been at the heart of every Lotus since the very beginning. Emira is no exception. Intelligent engineering means it is the only car in its class to generate significant downforce, generating outstanding performance and exceptional grip at all speeds.
Emira is a true sports car that builds on the legacy of past Lotus icons. Everything about it is – For The Drivers. Smart design and technology delivers enhanced stability, exceptional road handling and the sensation of a very low centre of gravity, while the powerful AMG turbocharged 4-cylinder engine unit astounds and excites. This is a car that demands to be driven.
