Following on the heels from the full EV hypercar, the Lotus Evija, the Emira brings a full update and replacement to the recent models; Elise, Exige and Evora. It also marks the start of a collaboration and technical partnership with AMG to offer the 2.0l turbo 4-cylinder in a mid-engine position, or alternatively available with the traditional Toyota 3.5l supercharged V6.

The engines will offer between 360 and 400hp with a host of different gearboxes between them; manual, automatic and DCT, with 0-62mph (100km/h) taking less than 4.5 seconds and a top speed up to 180mph (290km/h), with a target lightest weight of only 1,405kg.

However, the most striking announcement is that prices start from £60,000 (€72,000) for a totally new sports car that carries serious supercar looks and visual drama. In fact, numerous of the design cues have filtered down from the flagship Evija, with a First Edition arriving with a loaded specification to begin the customer deliveries in Spring 2022./Shmee150
