So no-one has put together a stack of photos of the Evora, then the Emira, then the Evija?

Stunning.  I go tomorrow and this has made me more eager.

You can sit in the Emira, right?

Only if you’ve placed a deposit already…….! (Went today)

The more I look at it the more my mind screams its an S3 Evora 2+0 slightly wider , more useable, up to date tech, new corporate face. If it was BMW , Audi or Porsche that's what it would have been... That's not to say it's not a good looking thing and I want one ... Just can't afford one ...yet...

Lover of everything Lotus Cars and proud owner of production Evora No.75 (2nd UK customer specced car by VIN). Originally from the Far East....of Anglia, I read black box data for a living so that could explain a lot!

Just FYI, the Emira shares exactly zero components with the Evora.

But Emira parts may retrofit.......

Wonder what Emira (type 131) part numbers will be

S1 elise parts were a111

VX were a116

S2 a117

evora (type 122) are a132

Does that make the evora the emira replacement?

They probably used different nuts and bolt size to make sure they didn’t have any in common! 😂 

same V6 and therefore gearbox I would think then. Probably updated ECU for pollution.

As a deposit holder they looked after me very well.  Sat in the car, good chats with people, including Russell Carr and Matt Windle.

I’d recommend getting there early, as soon as gates open, as there were queues to get on stand from 9.30 onwards.  It’s busy today and it’s supposed to be the least busy day!

Tom, a question if I may since you have sat in the car. Does the seat feel good and low and is it height adjustable? One thing which put me off the Evora 410 was that the Sparcos were set far too high for me. In a sports car I much prefer a bum on floor driving position like in an Exige.

The seats are 12 way adjustable. I'm still trying to work out 12 directions a seat can move in but I'd imagine one of them is up and down.

2) Seat forward & back

4) Seat height up & down

6) Seat base tilt forward & backward

8) Seat back tilt forward & backward

10) Seat rear lumbar support in & out?

12) Headrest up & down? (and that is a complete guess)

IMG_3435.thumb.JPG.92744f9e1ec50600d0bd3b387f4d15ed.JPGso this was the spec of the blue one at FOS. I think i would go for 

1. Full Black pack

2. Colour brake calipers

3. 20" Wheels, silver

4. KEF Stereo 

5. not sure what the packs are all about so would need more info on that, driver pack probably not as this will be a road car unless it sits lower with it then it is a must. 

 

Also depends on cost obvs

From talking to Lotus people on the stand I think Launch Edition will have most of the options included.  Choices will be engine/gearbox, colour, interior trim, wheels and Touring versus Drivers Pack (which is mainly suspension and tyres).

Bought my Emira yesterday.....Visited the Lotus stand, spent 20mins in the queue. Paid my money and took my Emira home. Have a couple of vids of the centre display outside Goodwood House with the Evija and Emira moving and the impressive fireworks. Took loads of pics anyway, including as Bibs did of the cars in the performance parking.

Lotus have had 500 made as a limited edition - all in blue, and the engine says its a V6. It has cup holders and it may be an auto as there is no gear stick noticeable. The model manufacturers must have been shown the plans ages ago to get the model ready.

Oh my, they are having to discount them to sell them already!

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!

A 410sport owner here and yes agree the Sparcos do sit a bit heigh, sitting in the Emira is a totally different feeling, climbing in feels like a supercar experience and even though the seats are not the final production was told they will sit lower with more side bolster it honestly felt like sitting a supercar, a friend as a MaLaren 720S it felt similar. Having owned most of the recent lotus cars over the last 20years and mainly been happy with the seating position and the sense of occasion that as brought, I have to say I could not believe the difference it just felt like a junior supercar.
