Lotus Cars have just unveiled the new Emira sports car, a mid-engined model that takes inspiration from the Evija hypercar. Lotus will be launching the new Emira with two different engine options: an AMG-sourced turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and a supercharged 3.5-liter V6n engine. Lotus notes that the power output of the Emira will be from 360 to 400 hp at launch. Expect the Emira to launch from 0 to 62 mph in 4.5 seconds and hit a top speed of 180 mph. What’s more, Lotus is aiming for a target weight of 3,097 lbs. Lotus is launching the Emira with a look that has clearly been inspired by the Evija hypercar. You will notice that there are many air inlets on the Emira the are incredibly similar to the ones found on the Evija.
“The Emira is a game-changer for Lotus,” says Matt Windle, Managing Director of Lotus Cars. “It stands as a beacon of everything we have achieved to date in the transformation of the business, the embodiment of our progress. It is a highly significant milestone on our path to becoming a truly global performance car brand.”
The new Lotus Emira will have a starting price of under $82,000. Lotus retailers are currently taking orders. If you’d like to see it for yourself, it will be on display at the Goodwood Festival of Speed from July 8 to 11.
