Recognising that the Lotus Emira is generating interest on the forum with a few potential owners, I thought it'd be good to create a dedicated thread.
Yes, I've heard the same from various sources. By the way, for anyone who wants to submerge themselves in discussion about the Emira, one of the better sources is The Lotus Forum (known as TLF), just search 'Emira'.I was reading about deposits and they have bloody loads which is not surprising. If you believe what you hear a 1000 on day one of Goodwood and that doesn’t include the rest of the world etc….I think there may be a long waiting list for this car and some hefty premiums for the first cars I bet by speculators.
Think they have 26 dealers across the UK now.Just had the manager of the new showroom in Ashford call me (it's been open 8 days) I'm booked in for their dealer launch in September/October.
It was interesting to hear that each dealer is getting an initial 50 cars. How many dealers are there?
He said, some long established dealers have sold their allocation already, as they are so new, whereas he has most of his left.
Watched it thanks, those bonded aluminium chassis used to be made here in Worcester. Then Lotus bought the company and moved it to Norfolk.There's a Lotus Channel 4 doc downloadable at the moment if anyone's interested which features this new car, it's a decent watch
It's impressive stuff and watching it you realise what appears to be comparatively new tech, has been championed by Lotus amongst others for many, many yearsWatched it thanks, those bonded aluminium chassis used to be made here in Worcester. Then Lotus bought the company and moved it to Norfolk.
Perspex or glass cover would be better than mesh. Without a cover of some kind you can see either small childrens fingers getting crushed or phone charging cables. Lets face it those cables are expensiveI imagine it will have to have a cover of some kind for a safety rating.
