For people that saw the car in the flesh, how is it looking ? Wide and large or looks so much compact?

I was looking for similar cars sizes and the Audi R8 is pretty similar in all 3 measures
The original image/video seems to be taken with a wide angle lens. The proportions are all distorted. In real life it looks nice and wide.

There's some geometric distortion in those screenshots from the video due to the lens used on the video camera (guessing it's a GoPro or similar).

It's a similar overall size to the Audi R8. The Emira is about 2cm shorter, 6cm wider and 1cm lower, so slightly more aggressive-looking with a wider track and a fraction lower at the roof. The Emira headlights are vertically stacked and pushed out to the sides, which gives the car an impression of being wider and lower at the front too.

  • Audi R8: 4429mm L x 2029mm W x 1236mm H (1940mm W with mirrors folded)

Edited to correct widths to both be with mirrors extended, and added width with mirrors folded

I’ve had one and R8 is deffo wider, but I would say yes Emira has good stance but definitely doesn’t look as wide - I see it as slight positive as I was always super fussy where I parked due to its width as paranoid about getting it bashed from other car doors - car parks spaces they must think everyone drives fiat punto’s !

I still think the safe option is to spec without and add later if you feel you made a mistake or simply want a change

Everyone's taste is different and @Balboa 's may be different than mine, but I went into my factory tour expecting to spec Nimbus with black pack, saw several about the factory , and then turned a corner and saw no-BP with black wheels and red calipers and my heart skipped a beat. It had more presence than anything else on the line, and that includes a vivid red. Any time I wobble on the issue I remember to trust that initial gut instinct.

Nimbus is such a beautiful color. It has such a premium look to it. I think it's the one color out of the 6 FE colors, that looks equally good with or without the black pack.

This is exactly my spec I was so close to going with yellow brake callipers to go with the yellow lotus badge and yellow Center cap and I think the yellow stands out more with the black wheels rather than red - wish I had now. I’ve had oodles of Red brake callipers over the years. My intention is to get black pack as retro fit - but I’ll see how good she looks without first.

These look like some of my HAC Concours images from June. There’s a thread with a few others as well if anyone wants Nimbus black pack and interior shots
