I sat in it today and the seats felt fabulous, as in don't worry at all.

They spent some time apparently in getting the seats as thin yet supportive and comfy as possible.

They are bespoke, not lifted from any other car.

If it has an engine, I am there to thrash it.

So I cobbled these together from the internet thingy. I can't get the same colour in each so what you see is what you get.

The silver colour shows the true lines much better than the black roofed ones

Nice.

On the Emira, that high line swoop from the rear to under the middle of the windon, and the metal above the front wheel arch turns it from sports car to supercar looks.  Overall, the affect is startling. 

There were some mad machines at the show but this Emira can stand next to them.

If fact, this should have been the SF90 - I much prefer the Emira.  It is also nicer looking than the base Maccas in my opinion.

I ever think it just beats the new Artura on styling. Of course it can't match any of them in straight line speed but a race on the streets, b-roads or Brand Hatch Indy and there would little in it.

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!

I went photo searching again and I could not find a silver Emira profile photo. I also tried to save a copy from the configurator (Yes! It worked finally!)

Ah. I see what was meant now. I went looking for a silver profile photo of the Emira. but couldn't find one.

I agree that a lighter roof colour does seem to flow better from end to end.

I had to turn the green one 180 degrees and then resize to get them all a similar size. That is just about my image editing limit right there.

Thanks for posting..  Glad to see the Emira on some wheels and not those awful 'fan blades' Lotus used at the Hethel Launch. I found them so awful I was distracted from looking at the lines of the car. Anybody else have that problem?

You are right. Those wheels are so ugly they dominate, and you cannot see the form of the Emira. Like a foghorn in a library.

Interesting what is said and done here, including those wheels...he says visually the car is not grounded because of the wheel design, and likens it to the car having "broken feet".

Strange, I love those wheels and I won't be the only one.

They make a statement all on their own - is that statement too strong and dilutes the rest of the beauty?

Nah, of course not. The car itself is epic. You could put 4 dustbin lids under the arches and it will great. It is just a superb package.

Those wheel ELEVATE the car - make it more of a supercar. It is the things that stand out that often make that difference.

Anyway, I always welcome opinions, even wrong ones. 😄

Action still from yesterday's "Lotus Moment" in front of Goodwood House - with the Emira (on "Design 1" silver rims) leaving the Evija "in its dust tracks"...

But remember one thing: don't lose your head to a woman that'll spend your bread: Lotus Turbo Esprit (89-11); Lotus Esprit GT3 (12-14): Lotus Evora S (14-17); Lotus Esprit V8 SE "UK Last 15" (18-...)

That colour is growing on me. I spent quite a bit of time with it yesterday. Video coming soon.

It looks flat and almost black in some light conditions but in the sun it looked fabulous.

Killed the lines for me, we had a chat with Mark from Lotus and the marketing dept specified the two colours at FOS. I get that as they need a new audience and some like a subtle shade. 
 

I personally just hope by the time they get the 4 pot production going I can have Military Grey with red leather 

the thing is @Evotion I have had a Lotus for over 20 years ( with a  small break) and I love the fact that everyone and I mean everyone from the factory is approachable, normal and actually interested in your view. Did you notice in the Ferrari part it was cordoned off? That is the difference you need to adjust to

Enjoyable vid. Jenson has just massively promoted V6 sales! 

Jenson said the Evija only weighs "200kg more than this". That would put the V6 at 1480kg. Cat out of the bag?

Is that really nimbus grey? Looks much lighter than that on the configurator.

Agree a great video and yes I understand Shmee is not everyone’s cup of tea but he will put the Emira into the into the public spotlight, probably more than than anyone on the planet which will obviously bring a big increase in sales. A great insight into the new Radford sounds like it’s going to be a very potent, Exige tub and lots more power, clad in Carbon, makes for a very special sports car.

You're right. I had a one-to-one with Matt Windle and a golden nugget of information which will be on my Emira update video tomorrow.

Is it just me or should the front splitter have some sort of mesh covering things?

Not usually a Shmee fan but really enjoyed this with Jenson at the wheel.  Sooo looking forward to seeing the Emira tomorrow at Goodwood.  And he is buying one!

 

Its obvious to me that Shmee hasn't been in a EVORA, so as an "influencer" this will be good for both the EMIRA sales and older V6 lotus cars
