Possibly. Seems that they've kept it well locked up until now so would make sense. Looks like it's a picture taken from a screen or something (possibly CRT security screen as the texture is very strange)

It almost looks like it may have venturi tunnels. The side inlets seem to be pretty big and seems to have somewhat large holes in the rear. Not as big as the Evija of course. Could just be pressure outlet (or whatever they are called) behind the rear wheels as well, but they look pretty large.

But that photo is from Hethel so it must be a leak from the factory....Can match to the nearby buildings etc.  Bit like a leak from inside the Heath ministry.

Is that a deliberate reveal? If I were Lotus I'd be pretty peed off if not.

Certainly got folks trembling on here and FB is alive…… what’s not to like.

I was told some time ago that the launch car was in a ‘cyan’ colour so I’m sure that’s Emira. More Evora in it than I thought and no Evija inspired rear light treatment which on balance is a good thing wouldn’t have made much sense without the venturis. Can’t believe it got leaked 24hrs before launch but we’ve seen a lot of it from the teasers now anyway. Prefer the metallic grey personally.

When that first picture appeared it was described as a photo of a CCTV screen at Goodwood.  If someone has leaked a picture of an Emira being unloaded at FOS I’m guessing Lotus won’t be happy.  It doesn’t fit with their secrecy and teaser images so far, so I don’t think it’s been leaked by Lotus.

Edit: just seen the second picture - that’s Hethel so the plot thickens!

It’s a shame really - it was such a brilliantly well kept secret up to tonight. Oh well the real unveil will still be worth the watch👍

A few spoilers from these pictures like what the rear and side vents kind of look like, however you still can't tell much. Honestly I don't doubt the car will look good, specs are more of my concern.

I am really confused by the timer on the Lotus website for the Emira.

BST is currently 2:30am on the 6th. 11:30am in Geelong, Australia.

Timer says about 8 hours.

That would make it 10:30am BST on the 6th and 7:30pm on the 6th in Geelong.

Official email from Lotus says 7:30pm BST on the 6th which is 4:30am on the 7th in Geelong.

The timer must be making an adjustment based on the location of the ISP that is viewing it?

Really confusing.

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

As part of this live launch, would be great if after pulling the covers off, Gavan Kershaw takes it round the circuit and puts in a time quicker than those we currently know about - what's the weather forecast for Hethel this evening?😀
