The brand new Lotus called the Emira is coming soon with two powertrain options and judging by the looks of it, it is one of the best looking Lotus's ever made!
Lotus, a British car manufacturer founded by Colin Chapman over 74 years ago and has a very rich history in motorsport and of course Formula 1 and even prototype cars for Le Mans. Lotus has also been the guinea pig for Tesla with the original Tesla Roadster back in the early 2000s. But in their own right, Lotus has produced some amazing track cars in the past such as the Lotus Elise, the Lotus Exige and the Lotus Evora.
But now, there is another one on the block, that of the 2022 Lotus Emira.
The Lotus Emira will be available in 2 drivetrain options. The first drivetrain option will be a Toyota built 3.5 litre V6 supercharged petrol engine that will produce around 400bhp at the wheels and will be available in both a 6-speed manual and in a 6-speed torque-converter automatic gearbox that comes with a factory fitted limited-slip differential. The Emira V6 drivetrain option will also produce around 315 lb-ft of torque, do a 0-60mph spring in just 4.3 seconds and will reach a top speed of 180 mph.
The second drivetrain option will be a Mercedes Benz AMG built 2.0 litre four cylinders turbocharged petrol engine that will produce around 360bhp and 300 lb-ft of torque. It will also reach a 0-60 mph print in just 4.5 seconds and reach a top speed of 170 MPH. However, the 2.0-litre turbo drivetrain will only be available with an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission.
