Blimey, pretty expensive.

Driving it won't be anything like the Emira we will be getting of course.

Well, there will be a GT version in a couple of years. 

It will have between 430 and 450 HP but it doesn't mean I will upgrade to it - suspension might be too soft 😊

How have you got it on order when it has not been announced for released?  I thought there was currently "just" the First Edition for order, followed by the "normal" spec Emira V6 and I4 after that?  As far as i know the GT version is not road legal. Very happy to be proven wrong though.

 

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

GT4 isn't road legal.  It's possible to place deposits for cars that haven't been launched yet, as I and several others did for the Evora and Emira.  I've got deposits placed for future cars too.

I am a bit puzzled by this GT4 spec, seems quite a lot down on power compared to field leaders like the 570S and the weight difference won’t be enough. Surely you can get more power for a race car. 
 

edit: Just realised that the McLaren is carrying about 200kg+ of ballast so that should do the trick, interesting to pit a 355hp 1200kg car against a 465hp 1600kg car. At this rate the Lotus may even get some ballast.

Um, I hope people don't start upgrading their V6 FE Emiras, for two reasons.

  1. I think they should stay standard as they will be future classics
  2. I might not be able to resist once everyone else starts doing it

🥴

 

First UK GT4 race day?  Sounds like a day out to me.

Yeah, pretty sure there will not be a GT4 road car  - just a GT version with more power and perhaps some changes above and beyond the Sports Pack that we know about,

Finally launched, deposits being taken in Oz. Shouldn't be long before Europe follows suit.

Looks like the best part of £160,000, I don’t think they will sell many in the UK at that price point when a 570s is less

Are you comparing a race car (GT4) with a road car (570s)?

No a McLaren GT4 570s race car could be bought earlier last year for well under £160 although not sure about this season

You guys are forgetting EVERYTHING costs more in Australia. What's the FE Emira there, 75k pounds? It's something like 190k AUD, which is 102k pounds at today's exchange rate...

Still no announcement on team partners or race programs for the first year. The car being unproven. I did not really expect teams lining up at the factory with orders. Maybe now that Lotus Advanced Performance has been put in charge of competition we will have an announcement in time for the start of the european season.
