For the 2024 model year, the Lotus Emira is only available with a 3.5-liter supercharged V6 engine having specifications of 400 hp and 317 lb-ft of torque, or 310 lb-ft in the case of the six-speed manual version. The optional automatic is also a six-speed unit. Power is delivered to the rear wheels exclusively in all configurations, and the Emira's positioning as a purist's dream is completed by its hydraulic power steering. A 360-hp 2.0-liter turbo-four will join the lineup at a later stage; the torque specs of this Lotus Emira model are the same as for the V6 at 317 lb-ft. Cheaper Lotus Emira trims are also on the way.
In the First Edition that will be available initially, the Emira enjoys a high standard of equipment that includes 12-way power-adjustable and heated seats, Alcantara trim, a KEF premium sound system, a 12.3-inch TFT instrument display, and a 10.25-inch touchscreen interface. Outside, the sexy shape is made especially attractive by the 20-inch V-spoke forged alloy wheels of the First Edition. Even base trim levels are generously specified, but these aren't available yet.
A Black Package is available for the exterior, while other options will include a comprehensive driver-assistance suite.
