Anyone else watch the unveiling?

Thoughts? I’m a little unsure on it’s side profile and the rear looks a little heavy around the middle. It’ll be a case of seeing one in the flesh…

I think the main thing for me is relief that it's nowt like the renders that had a lot of people worried. Me included.

Looks like Lotus are finally back on track after a few years in the doldrums. Initial thoughts it looks absolutely ace if a little on the lardyside, weight wise. Def going to take a peek :)

Catchpole interview's worth a watch.

I think it looks great. And concur re as slight sense of relief that’s the case. I’d be keen to see one in the flesh..

Poor ol Russell Carr got a little tongue tied, and the uproar from the keyboard warriors when they were told it weighs 1400kgs.

They ignored Stefano D’aste’s comment that actually that’s pretty good for a new car with the current/future regs.

2.0 DCT or V6 Manual….the former would be tempting IMO

You are jesting Rob? :)

My S1 Exige with a 4 pot is 869kg
My Mac570s is 1430kg - with a lardy V8

The Emira appears rather overweight, maybe it's to accommodate the lardy prospective new owners?

I like it, in the same way I like the racey end of the Evora range.

Looking forward to seeing a carbon clad special edition in November.

Tempting as in…if you had to choose between the two engines Simon.

No intention of losing the real lotus feeling aka the S1 😎

Rob for fun value the VHPD has it in spades, :), but was always looking for launch in the rearview mirror ;)
