  2. So I went on the live chat and there was a very helpful lady who spelt it out for me. I think the confusion is where some people are getting more specific information than others. Essentially there is a difference between a build slot and a delivery date. Yes if you get a phonecall ahead of somebody your car spec is sent to the factory first to be allocated a BUILD SLOT however it does not directly affect your DELIVERY DATE, she was adamant to tell me my delivery date was safe she did not confirm which order the cars are then built. This is why there is a cut off date of 5th November as they can then plan the most efficient way to do it without fucking over order priority. That being said it did kind of read on the chat like if you put your configuration in on 4th November it doesn't matter if you were an april deposit because your build slot is at the back, we purely don't know how they will then manage that. This would then follow from Marclurr's quote of the terms and conditions which do state it is Lotus's complete discretion what order they build them in. She also said that everyone should be getting contacted in deposit order. So if you were an April deposit and haven't been rung, personally I would get on the live chat which is on the emira page. If you were a 7th July and the guy on 8th July has been rung, don't stress about it it's not going to make a difference. If you are 7th July and you aren't rung for another week and August people start popping up, I would get in contact with them. She was also basically saying get your configuration correct first time as it is not going to be that easy to change it. lol there will be material and paint samples on the roadshow factory collection is not a thing currently due to covid and some staff still working from home so this may not be possible. Only automatic cars will have the top dead center coloured marker and contrast stitching due to supplier demand (ie manual has no yellow stitching and will be plain black), this is reflected on the configurator if you choose the automatic car you can then pick more steering wheel options. My advice, get leather then pay https://royalsteeringwheels.com/ £300 to do it in alcantara and whatever colour you want. She could not tell me my order position @Evotion and @697OK I would get in contact if I were you just to be safe as you should have been phoned by now.

  4. Im sure they haven’t forgotten about you Tom, this thread is quite valuable actually. Interesting piece of information going forward as we can make sure lotus are keeping the queue straight. Or highlight if they’ve cocked something up
  5. I feel for the sales team not being able to share the FE AMG i4 price as obviously that is a defining factor for a lot of people who can't decide between which engine, that being said you can definitely get a pretty good idea of the price. As I was told a while ago at goodwood the Lotus representative told me that the i4 was sub £60k like we all know and that the V6 was not that much over £60k, being in the conversation I took that as £63-£65k. He also said like we already know that the FE would be about £15k of options at a discounted price, £12k for economy of scales production probably isn't a bad guess. Therefore your FE AMG i4 is most likely going to be £3-£5k less than the V6 configurator meaning it will be in the £70,995-£72,995 bracket. my guess would be £71,995
  6. I've just seen that 30 April 21 Pugwash & 19 May 21 Gashead1105 & 4 June 21 DJW early deposits have had their phonecalls to configure the emira. Has anybody else? I'd be interested to know how quickly they are getting through the orders. I would assume the majority of you lucky early birds would be on this forum so the list above might not be missing too many names?
  7. Lotus Emira page confirms Kef is in the First edition, phew. Also that is a new good view of the boot https://www.lotuscars.com/en-GB/model/emira/ EDIT: I've just caught up on the other thread which has all this information + more on it already https://www.thelotusforums.com/forums/topic/114271-emira-configurator-is-now-live/?page=3
  8. Did anybody notice that some options have disappeared from the configurator. The stiched alcantara steering wheel with the strip at the top. And 2 alloy wheel options. Any others? Are you sure because i read this like it was included “Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and satellite navigation (in selected markets) are integrated into the Emira V6 First Edition, supported by Bluetooth and USB/12v sockets. The 10-channel/340W premium audio system has been developed in partnership with respected British brand KEF and includes DAB digital radio.”
  9. The interior on the configurator is not great with regards to finer details, in the article it reads like the kef audio system is part of the FE. https://www.thelotusforums.com/latest-news/lotus-cars-news/lotus-confirm-emira-pricing-fe-set-at-75995/amp/
  10. Hi There, TomE has just touched on this in his post below, I would say you aren't going to be held to your first configuration, the only difficult swap i would imagine being trying to switch from 4cylinder to V6 if your order was placed as 4cylinder and if you are an early deposit, since the V6 engines are being built first
  11. I got an "Emira Priority Reservation Showroom Event Invitation" email at 18:53, I've booked for 20-21:30 28th September at my local which was Bell and Colvill. It seems the evening slots were not on that roadshow link previously shared in this thread. Do I bring my mate who loves cars or the misses who hasn't seen it yet... 😬 If we're having a sweepstake again, I'm going to guess it will still be Blue giving it is their launch colour

    I shall put my sweep stake in at £59k for the AMG and £64k for the V6 before the FE option Everyone's talking about the Porsche's but there is a 4 cylinder F type which starts at £55k
  13. Gutted I'm up by wellingborough often and would have loved to have followed it, good spot did it sound good? Does that mean there might be a photograph out there of an emira on the roads!

    Hi all, I believe first write ups about the emira were guessing 360hp for the AMG and to be confirmed. I've just been on the configurator and you have the option to save, load or open a brochure which opens a pdf document in a new tab and the engine specification says the AMG is 360hp, this is Lotus' actual brochure saying it now. V6 is not mentioned though. Also on the Emira configurator page itself under engine specification it says 360hp for the AMG 4 cylinder I don't remember, has this always been there as this could stop speculation the amg will be the more powerful engine of the two. Brochure attached or at this link: https://www.lotuscars.com/content/media/Lotus-Emira-eBrochure.pdf configurator here: https://www.lotuscars.com/en-GB/model/emira Lotus-Emira-eBrochure.pdf
  15. Sorry I forgot to put the link https://media.lotuscars.com/en/galleries/emira.html
  16. Apologies if somebody has already posted this. I hadn't seen it before but on the Lotus website there is a page for emira which has a gallery section at the bottom with lots of goodies, you may not have seen them all
  17. Even though this is a game it's nice to see some different colours together and moving. I've also noticed how aggressive this car is going to look in a rear view mirror. Seems like the Evija bonnet style gives the lights some angry eyebrows

    We will all be guessing until the day they tell us so it's all a bit of fun for now 😁 I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for what the Lotus representative told me at the Goodwood launch which was that the first edition is £15k of options with a discount then the base V6 price is a little over £60k by which he meant somewhere between £60-£65k (ie £73-£80k FE). I don't reckon it's a big secret they are keeping, I think they're still working out the price! Therefore can everyone stop telling them to make it £75k base for the V6 before I have to sell my Lung as well as my liver 🤣 This is a key point, it's tricky business for everyone at the moment, I work in the construction industry and I can tell you costs are through the roof.

  20. Don't worry anybody who sold a nice car pre-March time is crying inside! You're not alone
  21. Whilst on the topic of Dealerships I am yet to contact one and as a new customer to Lotus I don't have a preferred dealership. I live bang half way between Hendy Lotus Eastleigh & Bell & Colvill Lotus Surrey. My initial thought was B&C may be busier with London customers so it would be nice to go to Eastleigh. Seeing Colchester getting some stick above please may I ask if there is an opinion as to which one I should choose?
  22. My thoughts would be that they launched the car without naming the price in order to gauge the response and price afterwards. If the demand is as high as it seems it’s basic business to put that price up. I wouldn’t be surprised if somebody from lotus was reading this thread! I know that’s what i would be doing. How much they can up the price before losing too many deposits is the trick. Dealers are probably rubbing their hands together when somebody asks how much. Lets say the v6 is £70k before the first edition option, Is manufacture and supply from AMG of the 4cyl going to be (70-60) £10k+ Cheaper than the v6 which Lotus have also been buying for years. I would expect AMG’s deal to Lotus to carry a premium? I’m not an expert so couldn’t comment I’m praying to the petrol gods for £75kish first edition 🙏🏻 Green, black pack, tan or icy white interior for me chaps and the design 1 silver alloys
  23. Thanks TomE! Don’t get me wrong it does seem too good to be true and sometimes the guys on the stands get things wrong, that is the price he said to me though. My selfish concern is that Lotus may have been planning a £65k v6 price but having now read the room might put that up! If it’s supposed to be competing with a 718 Porsche cayman the GTS starts at £65k. Maybe a future emira S version comes in for the cayman gt4? Which is £75k. Fingers crossed, £75k including first edition would definitely have me swapping to Lotus. £90k first edition puts the price a bit too high for me personally and considering other cars at the price point. Not to mention the used market. only time will tell!
  24. Hi all, have joined the forum following my Wednesday 3pm Emira deposit! It will be my first lotus and i’m excited to join the brand 👍🏻 Regarding pricing i was told by the goodwood lotus team that the 4cyl is sub £60k and the v6 will be just over £60k. However first cars will be have a first edition pack which is non optional which come with £15k worth of options and will be around £75k inclusive. You could have a v6 at a later delivery for the just over £60k price Cheers, Matt
