Can any one explain what it is about the front suspension that contributes to the ride quality on the Emira?

Autocar claim nothing rides and handles better than the Evora 400/410 bhp models.

I have a vague memory that there is a video of Hethel employees explaining the arrangement.

My guess is the double large wishbones have a damper that is at a shallow angle thus with long travel and no chance of a frunk due to the geometry.

A lot of it is covered in here:

This article is a good summary of the Lotus philosophy:

You're correct the approach uses more space in the front interior, so rules out a frunk once you've also got radiators and oil coolers in there as well.

Thanks TomE. Great info. Can't wait to compare the ride and handling with other Brands.
