Had my first look at a real Emira today in Changzhou China. Hethel yellow, V6 Auto. Looked great (but Hethel is not my preferred choice).

Hi All

Though time to have a hethel yellow photo thread, I have had three previous Evora's Red S, Silver GTE and Military Grey GT430 (all sold now) so wanted a bright colour for the Emira V6 FE I have on order. Actually wanted a bright green or chrome orange but the only bright colour is the yellow at present so it will be that..

Pics from the configurator, who is going for the yellow and what wheels, callipers and interior? I have at present chosen yellow callipers, alcantara yellow stich and diamond cut wheels. Last photo has the yellow callipers.

Also most importantly black pack or not!!? Driving myself mad on that question. I think black pack = no rear 3/4 privacy and no black pack + privacy glass.

Change my mind daily on the black pack...so indecisive, I think!
One way forward is not to have the black pack, live with the choice. You can then have the roof wrapped in black…..these days it looks perfect. Then if you don’t like it remove the wrap. And then reverse that decision…….

Great photos, thank you for sharing!

Some really good shots of the silver forged wheels too. Those wheels really need a darker paint colour to pop. Dark Verdant, Magma and Shadow Grey will be perfect with Silver wheels.
Agreed, the yellow (without BP) needs the black or DC wheels. Silver wheels are my preference but maybe with Magma (still undecided with the colour….).

Just for balance, the silver wheels are perfect with Hethel Yellow.
Black wheels are just fashionable.

The car looked great to me. It’s a nice yellow and really does suit the car. I’m now very keen to see some other colours in the flesh as I’m still very undecided on my final spec.

They definitely don’t look bad at all with Hethel! I was just making observation that silver wheels will pop more with a darker body colour.
Just saw the latest IG post by Lotus Antwerp from this morning and they had “another” delivery of 4 Emiras. 2 Hethel yellow, one Magma red and one Seneca blue. Both yellow babies had black wheels with one having red calipers and the other having yellow. The yellow calipers were definitely a much brighter yellow than the body colour and just don’t look right. Black wheels with red calipers on the Hethel yellow looked good.

So that’s where all the Auto gearboxes have gone…. :)
Possibly….. It’s all a bit strange. V6 AT for demo cars, but you can only buy the V6 with MT. You can only buy a V6 MT with BP and DC wheels, but demo is non BP and silver wheels.

Regardless, it was great to finally see the Emira in the flesh and I can confirm it looks amazing!

A little scared to have a test drive in a V6, fall in love with the sound and drop another 30% over the I4 price.

Very strange! I wonder why so many restrictions?

Curious - is that green vehicle a Lotus?
yes it’s an an Eletre. For me it’s not bad looking but I’m not completely sold on the Eletre if I’m honest (not a big fan of SUVs). Interior is nice but kind of small for such a big car. Exterior is ok but I suspect it will look much better on the road in traffic than it does in isolation.

There is A LOT of carbon on the Eletre. It’s nice but I dread what the bill might be for a minor scrape.

The Emira is a different matter. The Emira looks amazing.

This reminds me of a story.

Food truck. Austin, TX. Shows up every Thursday. I ask “can I please have a grilled cheese sandwich?” Guy says they don’t have those. I got a burger.

Next week he comes. “Hey man, what kind of cheese do you have?”
“American, Swiss, provolone…”
“Cool. What type of bread y’all got?”
“White or wheat…”
“Awesome. I’ll have a grilled cheese with American and white.”

Hey Lotus. You have green paint!

Yes, the Electra that’s actually green, as opposed to black with a hint of green ;)

Recently saw a (fairly dark) green Evora in the showroom and it looked pretty sweet (and it was clearly green too) :cool:
