Emira width ?? - Interior/Exterior/Lights/Glass/Alarms/ICE/HVAC/Other - The Lotus Forums #ForTheOwners Jump to content

After all the excitement of Goodwood I've been doing some man maths to see if the Emira will fit in the garage (I should have taken a tape measure). Like most in the UK my single garage is has a 7ft (2134mm) door. I've been told that the Emira is 150mm wider than an Evora. If the Evora is 1972mm wide the Emira should be 2122mm wide. The leaves an overall gap of 12mm (6mm either side of the garage opening) which although possible doesn't make it easy to get into and out of the garage. However, Simply Sports Cars down under list the Emira width as being 1895mm, which is only 93mm wider than my Exige which would be much easier to get into the garage.

Has anyone had any official dimensions from Lotus (couldn't see anything on the website)?

Autocar has 1985 mm wide. Saying just a fraction larger than Evora.

Thanks, that's more like it. I just needed to disprove my rubbish man maths 🤣 which did trigger a whole garage widening project thought process that round have ended up costing more than the car!

Don't know if this includes mirrors, I saw somewhere that the gt430 is a little wider than the gt410's as there are little black extensions over the rear wheels. But the width with the mirrors not folded back may be the same at 1972mm.

And the little model blue emira is a bit wider than the yellow one (I would not say that it may be that accurate,) but both are supposed to be the same scale.....

I have also read or heard quoted a wider rear track than the Evora of about 150mm and putting it at over 2m wide.  

I have a real first world problem that I have my toys stored vertically on/under a 4 poster that I only bought a couple of years ago & wide enough to store the Evora on. Although plenty space between pillars for body/wing mirrors there is a narrow point at deck level where the pulleys are and I am going to be only about 2-3cm either side of expensive alloys.  Granted the Emira will be the lower car most of the time but an unexpected pain!

Believe the SSC quote is mirrors folded, which would make reverse parking a little tricky…

Looks like we will have quite a few out in Gods driving country from what I'm hearing from Laura and some PM's. 👍
