I'm presuming the Emira will get "type approval" before May 2022 and not have to comply with this?

Emira may be the first and last new car I ever buy it may appear.
 
Just had it confirmed as I thought the UK Emira will have a speed limiter

''The speed limiters will be fitted on all UK vehicles as standard, this is a regulation for which we must abide by. However, all vehicles will have the option to turn it off within the drivers settings/ control.''

Looks like that will be part of the pre flight check !
 
What’s your source for that? It contradicts a previous statement by Lotus:
 
Why is this thread titled “Tracker”? :unsure:

Just letting you know that the demo car has been lowered to look more planted , probably at least a inch

Email direct from Lotus yesterday
 
OK, thanks. More contradictory info from them :)
 
Perhaps coincidence but could just be coming with a Volvo carryover. If you watch Succession there's a brief shot of the XC40 dash in one of the 'Sponsored by...' idents. Whenever I see it I am reminded of the Emira dash (no bad thing!)
 
Some of the Geely and Lynk & Co cars have similar elements too, so it's probably a group thing. I know the Lotus Human/Car Interaction team had access to any hardware or software they wanted from across the group.
 
Thanks, I'd not looked at Lynk before. Interesting business model. Start/stop button is rather familiar, along with clocks, vents, stalks and steering wheel buttons.

Definitely all the same. Shame not bespoke, but as expected and not a bad thing really.
My 1995 VW Corrado shares its wing mirrors with the McLaren F1 😁🥰
