Hi all.
Long time Lotus fan but never an owner.
Pretty much only owned fast beamers since having the choice (had company cars for a while).
Sold my BMW M3 Competition recently and on an impulse put a deposit down on the Emira on launch night. Followed up with a call in the morning to the local dealer Bell & Colvill.
I was sold the instant I saw it.
Planning on an AMG DCT (want auto but not the 6 spd with the V6) and the M139 engine looks awesome.
Getting the car September next year suits me just fine. Very excited.
Thanks for letting me join.
Based in Woking, Surrey. Not far from the home of McLaren.
Cheers. Mark.
 
Welcome to the Emira Forum @as7920 🍻 I'm now thinking about getting a CLA45 in the meantime just to try out the M139 for a bit. 🤣
 
Hi Mark - I’m new to Lotus also - coming from a Cayman S. Had just put down a deposit on a Cayman GTS 4.0, then they revealed this! Took a lot to pry me from Porsche - but this is simply stunning!
Excited beyond belief. Going for a V6 manual - I think I’ve completed YouTube as far as the Emira is concerned… can somebody upload some more content?! 😬♥️

If I was not going for the Emira, the Cayman GTS 4.0l was top of my list but just out of budget really so when they announced £60k for the Emira on the launch I was gobsmacked!
 
Hi all,

New to Lotus too. Currently have an Alpine A110 Legende as my daily. Sublime to drive. Expecting the Emira to be similar (if not better) to drive but more comfortable; oh the irony!

Very excited about getting my first Lotus - now just the wait!
