My thoughts also, but want to see silver wheels with it first, think it will be fine. What interior and caliper colours have you chosen ?

If I was going to get one, I have to admit that these two photos of the green could quite easily tear me away from the Magma Red.

It's got me thinking.  Problem is there are so many filters on the photos that it probably looks nothing like that, clear if you compare the Yellow to the photos appearing on Twitter.

You may be right Paul, but I admit that the way the reflections on it hide the shape in places increases interest to try and see what the car really looks like. Looking at the yellow car, you don't see the same play of shadows.

But as you say, may just be all the filtering. Looking forward to what people say when they actually see a dark verdant in the flesh.

Leading or just a fun day?

Tan interior and black callipers. I was tempted with yellow, but they don’t stay bright yellow for long. I have gloss black on my Evora and they still look good.they should also contrast well with silver wheels. Red were a bit boy racerish for me 😀

Anyone else noticed that the startup and reving noise on Shmees Museum video sound refreshingly different (but very similar) to the Evora 4xx soundtrack? Sure, this is very hard to tell from a video but I would like the Emira to sound a bit different compared to the old generation cars.

And the idea of induction noise on the air intake of the driver side... 🤤

Here two clips of the Youtube video with startup, sport mode valve open and some revs:

Again, really poor for Lotus to not release its own pics of the car. Fits a golf bag! Is this meant to be impressive? Haven’t looked at SM for a week and now only conclusion from the pics is: it’s a re-bodied Evora, with bigger wheels, less power, heavier, not as good front end.
 

Actually starting to look more awkward than an Evora.

 

Anyone seen any cars being built yet. Delivery is due in 5 weeks time.

Yes, an Evora Series 3, but Lotus wouldn't call it that because this is Lotus Version 2.0, the reboot, we are talking about.

Sweet. With black wheels - even better.

Those getting yellow will be delighted.  Probably should have been the launch colour really.

Great video!

still no clue what “the other” is supposed to mean! Marketing people should really get out more…

Yeah, I am a marketing consultant and still wince at that one.

So many things they could have said instead.

There was absolutely nothing wrong with For the Drivers.

I accept that the Emira 'may' not be as pure a drivers car as previous Lotus models, but it will still be a 'Drivers Car'.
