Shame the odd extra colour did not appear, orderable 08/04/22

You can get the coloured bit on the steering wheel on the i4 (although £400 would buy many rolls of insulation tape

Winter 2023 😳

Clues are already there for a far nimbler car that must be lighter - 0-60 time is faster with 40bhp  less and more torque in the first edition configuration. Looking forward to seeing what the figures are like when they start wringing some more power out of that incredibly tuneable unit.

So what happened to the launch price of £60k, that would have created a load on interest in the car at the time, but now - have costs gone up that much, or will there be a 'cheap' one even later on.

I'm guessing that will be the base i4... I'm OK with the premium for a FE as it has all the shopping I would have added anyway.  And before the pile on - it will be my daily,

Take my money.  Take it now!

Be amazed if they can keep the i4 at £60k by winter 2023 but even if they do they’ll claw it back with higher cost on the options surely.

Should really announce the price of the options now though so that people can choose whether or not to pay the premium for the F.E or not.

Future wish list - Exige V6

Why far nimbler, I thought weight difference was negligible?

It's in the Press Release that the base i4 car will be £59,995 and base V6 £64,995

FWIW when I spoke about the Emira to Steve Cropley at Brooklands earlier this month, he said the I4 was "the one to get" (he's recently taken an A110 which of course is auto only).

Anyway it was reassuring as I4 was already my choice when I make the jump...

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-...)

£72K for the first edition, or wait a few months for the £60K car with  an extended palette of new paints available exclusively on the entry level versions of both the Emira and Emira V6

Not convinced they have thought this one through

Really pleasantly surprised that they are still managing to hold the original published price here. Can’t see and wouldn’t expect them to continue holding this for long. Someone must have kidnapped their FD 🤐

I had a feeling the i4 might be close on performance since I heard the subframe was steel on the v6 and ally on the i4. Didn’t think it would turn out like that though.

There are going to be some very  serious i4’s when people, (or lotus..) tinker with them.

Anyone spot the clue to the potential that’s coming.

 

It is the world’s most powerful four-cylinder engine homologated for road use (up to 208bhp / litre), widely regarded as the world’s best i4 unit and has an enviable reputation for reliability.

I imagine the manual V6 has got to be slower than the auto, and no figures are formally published yet... do you think we'll see a V6 auto that's a little faster than the i4, and the manual similar or a little slower?

I noticed that too.... also the i4 has an auto box which is a 2k addition on the v6

 

edit: mind you thats got nothing to do with the price difference between base and FE 🤪

Really need to see the options price list on the base car to see what I’d realistically be paying for what I’d actually want to spec! I’d estimate  it would be under £70k but would be nice to be able to make an informed decision. Lotus seem very reluctant to give us all the information we should have by now to make the choice.
