could be. but also, we don't have to imagine that youtube car content creators have found that it's far easier to get more views with "new".
That's less of Harry's modus operandi when it comes to his personal collection, it doesn't change that often and very much comes across as being what he wants out of his collection rather than simply choosing the cars in it for the sake of view chasing. He's said in the past that he's had a one-in, one-out policy when it comes to getting new cars, so if he was swayed into something different it will be interesting to see what takes the Emira's place.

When it comes to new car content he tends to get it from vehicles loaned to him (from press fleets etc) rather than him going out and buying them.

couldn't agree more on his personal M.O., so hopefully being replaced with something that I would sell my Emira for!
 

Hmmm. This guy out here saying that Lotus told him the V6 was being discontinued and is already sold out. Huge if true.

(and he has doubled down in comments)

Anyone know anyone at Hethel who can confirm?
Doubled Down? Or just repeated what he said in a comment. Without a source it's just speculation, and there's a lot of that about. I live 6 miles from Hethel, and have a few contacts, have heard some rumours, but I'm not prepared to speculate at the moment.
 
Interesting. He was pretty down on the i4, both for lack of drama and slow DCT. Felt like a fair comparison. Hope they at least fix the DCT lag. That’s totally unexpected in a modern DCT and counterintuitive. DCT should be nearly instant.
 
He’s fast becoming my favourite reviewer. Totally agree that the drone on the highway is quite wearing, especially combined with the (worrying) gravel-grumble from the gearbox at sub-2000rpm. But the gear change, the look, and the overall theatre of the car are epic.

Please speculate!
 
I'll humbly submit this review. With almost 13,000 views and 99% likes, I think it ranks up there. With over 20 Emira videos, I'm looking forward to creating more Emira content now that I finally have my own Emira. If there's some Emira content you've been looking for, but haven't found, let me know and maybe I can slot it in the production schedule. Best, Peter

Thanks for adding this to the thread. Great review video!
Look forward to seeing some more footage now that you actually have your own car!
