Lotus Emira

The last hurrah to the petrol combustion engine for the historic brand is the all new Emira.

Social media has gone bonkers for this car ever since it’s launch just last week. With a starting price at around £60,000, this makes the car extremely accessible for a lot of people.

Whilst the outbound Evora resembled a baby version of the Ferrari 458, the Emira is undeniably the baby Ferrari 488. Not bad when you think the 488 is in excess of £250,000!

Whilst it may look like a mini Ferrari, it’s main rival will be the Porsche 718 Cayman.

Engine options will be a 2.0l 4 cylinder with around 360 bhp or a 3.5l supercharged V6 with around 400 bhp with delivery expected around Spring 2022.

The feedback we’re getting from club members is that allocations are being snapped up quickly and deliveries are more realistically 2023 now.
