Hotizontal tachos were ‘the fashion’ on motorbikes for a bit, my Ducati dash is the one on the left here. I guess to save space but they’ve reverted to round design more recently.

I didn’t’ like it to start with but it does work pretty well and is fun to chase the revs with once you get used to it.

My S2000 had an almost horizontal digital rev counter and reved to 9k :)

In my frogeye the steering wheel is to the left of the middle of the seat and the pedals are off to the right. It's completely bonkers. You drive with your shoulders pointing the opposite way to your hips. Then you notice the right side of the steering wheel is tilted in to the dash a touch.

We love a bit of character though don't we. And the feedback through a wood rimmed wheel is like the Emira steering reviews.. 'sublime!'

After carefully watching each review numerous times studying each for every detail I could find. I've settled on the AutoTrader review (Roy Reid) as the most informative, unbiased, and accurate projection of what I can expect from the Lotus Emira. Without doubt I am certain the Emira will over deliver after seeing this review in particular. Also, the CarWow (Matt Watson) review further solidified the performance and capabilities of the Emira and really exceeded my expectations. AutoTrader reviews have been around for a long time and I find them very trustworthy, frank, and honest. Congratulations to Lotus and its partners on what I am sure is a great exotic sports car. Can't wait to take delivery later this year. 🥂
Watson did have a 3.6S 0-60 time on the A45S.

So it could bode well for the i4 Emira.

I bet that has some lock on it though!

Although he's using a conventional wheel, watch the start of the onboard video of Gav driving the Evija at Goodwood last year, where he gets out of shape at the first corner and recovers it 😯

My buddy:
“‘Evija’ how do you pronounce that?”

Me:
“E V I J A - ‘two million’ just like it sounds.”

Awesome though, good share
So fast and so difficult to judge speed with no noise!

I do like the Artura dash/display, just that bit bolder and sportier that the austere Emira graphics. Look even better in motion if you watch the reviews. Unlike exotic materials, premium HMI graphics and design don't cost anything extra.

But buttonless and purposeful. Love that.

I think EV will come of an age where lateral G force replaces the old fashion “emotion” from engine noise and manual gear change….. 😂 I felt tense just watching the mph numbers just climb up like a slot machine hitting jackpot and the high pitched whine of the electric motor. I’m not too worried about EVs for enthusiasts, the game must move on.

Zero emotion so doesn't do it for me.
EV speed will be capped as they will be self driving before too long. Make the most of your freedoms whilst you still can.
I'm all about the personal drones now!!!
