The long-awaited successor to the Elise, Exige and Evora is finally here. This is the all-new Lotus Emira, Hethel’s latest sportscar and by far the company’s most advanced petrol-powered machine.

What do you need to know? Well there’s a twin-turbo four-cylinder from AMG but the option of a V6, at least initially, and there’s a dual-clutch box but also a manual. The Emira is bigger than the Elise, too, both in size and weight, tipping the scales at 1,405kg. But there’s way more tech than any Elise, Exige or Evora ever had, an all-new aluminium chassis and the car is built in an entirely new factory.
Is the Emira what you were hoping for?
