Lotus Emira


au-yt

Recommended Posts

Gordon Murray Design offered Lotus i-stream. No-go.

And obviously Lotus really need to do their own chassis, it's truly the Lotus DNA. Elite 14, Elan 26, Elise 111 - it's all about the chassis.

Sorry - off topic. Emira chassis is great.

Yes I was not referring specifically to the chassis, but some bits of GMA cars could be nice (like, I don't know, the Cosworth engine for instance :D)

(I didn't know about the i-stream platform, thanks!)

SMMT have today released the new car registration data for March, Lotus registered  152 new cars that's a ytd total of 311  (Assume these are probably all Emira's  and may be the odd Eletre.)

311 is more than the annual total for a few years.

Where is the Lotus data? 

On the SMMT site, By Brand doesn't include Lotus, I assume they are included in "Other British"  But it does include brands like Maxus that has sold 3 cars 2023 YTD.

SMMT dropped Lotus as a separate line a few years ago (also McLaren). I go to 

https://www.am-online.com/data/manufacturer-insight but it takes them a bit longer to get the data on their web site.

Sounds a great trip, and i must sign up to AL.  Any Emiras on sports susp there (im very glad I chose Touring) but was wondering from your comment if any Sports susp cars were struggling with the road surfaces.

@Whitey - the two Emiras ( a red one and a grey one) were both on Touring, I assume, as they both had the Goodyear tyre. The grey one was being driven by an avid track day enthusiast who tracks all over the UK and Europe and he had no complaints at all re the setup.

I will say the nimbus grey is a remarkable colour. It changes so much due to the light, going from an almost bright silver in the brightest of sunshine to a beautiful bronze colour when driving under the tree canopies. I'd never dream usually fo buying a "grey" car but that nimbus, lovely!

I came into this world screaming and covered in someone elses blood. I'll probably leave it in the same way.

The Goodyears can be had with Sports suspension (it’s what I’ve got), so you can’t assume that.

If they had the Cup 2s, then they definitely would have Sports, as you can’t option Cups with Touring.

Going by the finance deals on offer I’m guessing Lotus have no problem selling all their build slots for the foreseeable. Great news. Anyone know when they will start delivering i4 FEs?

Was at Goodwood 2 years ago, look forward to finally seeing one on the roads.

Just paid my £3000 Configuration fee for my i4 so certainly looks like things are moving forward OK with the Merc lump.

Any idea roughly from other people that have their Emira's on the lead time from paying the config fee to actually getting the car?

Thanks Jim, yeah I ordered mine before Goodwood so hopefully we'll receive ours at a similar time, at least we know it will be worth the wait.

Glad to hear it Mel, it'll make for a great daily and as you say, it's orders of magnitude cheaper than the Artura... 

Definitely, although I just spent an evening in an Artura, probably the wrong place to say this but it's mind blowing... shame about the ££££££! Now....

Did I hear something about 'Special Edition' Emira's, ie paint jobs? Seems a tad early for that one. but it's inevitable and never a bad thing!

EVO email today:

"........your next issue of evo will arrive a few days later than usual. I hope you'll forgive us for the one-off delay, which is due to a manufacturer enforced embargo that lifts on the day of publication."

That will be the August issue.  I've read that the i4 Emira is looming - a possibility I guess.

That's exciting news, at least we know one actually exists, look forward to seeing it at FoS next week, got notification mine has been delayed till November now, I'll be amazed if I see it this year.

Driving past Hendy Exeter, looked like an Emira in one of the new colours  - may be Zinc grey, wife said it looked a bit like her landau bronze evoque.
