Once again, Lotus is taking over headlines with its release of the 2022 Lotus Emira, the latest icon to join the supercar lineup. But don’t be fooled — the Emira is not just another sports car. It’s the other sports car. Creating an entirely new category with its exotic supercar looks, everyday usability and enhanced comfort, the Emira separates itself from the growing pack of (washed up) sports cars as the one to not just protect in a climate-controlled garage, but to drive at breathtaking speeds on the track. After all, Lotus has always been for the drivers. Class-leading driving dynamics won’t be wasted with the 2022 Lotus Emira — take your journey toward a thrilling new future with this unconventional sports car.
Taking design inspiration from the Evjia electric hypercar, the designers of the Emira chose to recreate its striking exterior with contemporary, sculpted surfaces and angled, 3D lines. Twin exhaust pipes promise a heart-pounding noise with every start of the engine or shift in transmission. And you might be tempted to think the Emira is sprinting ahead as it rests at its low centre of gravity. More exotic looking than sporty, this supreme athleticism is everything you’d expect from a Lotus, but like nothing you’d expect at the same time.
British craftsmanship hits its peak in the cabin of the Emira. The interior blends luxurious materials — like leather, Alcantara®, satin chrome metals — to nearly every surface. Unique to the Emira, the bespoke flat-bottom steering wheel is adorned with metal accents and integrated controls so that shifting gears becomes second nature. But practicality is not lost in the Emira — if anything, it’s generous. Luggage can be stored behind the seats or in the boot, covering everything from a standard flight case to your favorite set of golf clubs.
The technology of the Emira may appear other-worldly, but your connections to friends and family will remain strong. A 10.25-inch central touchscreen is your access point to apps through Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay®, and the high-definition 12.3-inch driver display showcases vital driving information that can be read in a glance. After all, you wouldn’t want to miss your chance to set a record-setting speed due to distractions. And like icing on a cake, the hyper-realistic sounds from Uni-Q™ audio technology (a first for production cars) can set the tone of every drive.
Like every Lotus that came before it, performance is at the heart of the Emira. The much-loved 3.5-litre supercharged V6 can be paired with either a 6-speed manual with Torsen Type Slip Differential or a 6-speed automatic. But if you choose the world’s most powerful production 360-horsepower 4-cylinder engine, you’ll get to know the double-clutch 8-speed automatic very well. Either way, blistering performance and exceptional road handling are yours to enjoy. The 2022 Lotus Emira is a car that demands to be driven.
