With a redesigned Evora chassis, all new exterior, and much more modern and luxurious interior, the Lotus Emira is targeting Porsche buyers.
At launch the Emira will be available with a supercharged 3.5L V6 from Toyota with between 360hp (268kW) and 400hp (298kW), 0-100km/h in under 4.5s, and a top speed of up to 290km/h (180mph).
Because Geely (51% owner of Lotus) is also the largest single shareholder in Daimler (the parent of Mercedes-Benz), the Emira will also be available with a Mercedes-AMG 2L I4 turbo engine later.
The Emira will be available with manual, automatic and dual clutch transmissions. It will be the last non-electrified model from the brand.
