It is time for the Lotus Emira to go racing. You’re on the lookout at the 1st pictures of the Emira GT4 race vehicle here, which is the levels of competition spec edition of the Emira street vehicle we bought to see revealed at this year’s Goodwood Pageant of Velocity.

Lotus didn’t provide a ton of aspects, but we know the crucial things. Its system is built of composite, and a bunch of changes are built in the name of aerodynamics and downforce. The clear and very simple strains of the Emira are interrupted by goods like the massive entrance splitter and large rear wing. By and massive, while, the fundamental Emira style and composition continue to be the exact exterior. We’ll also note that the GT4 is hand-created, whilst Lotus is trying to deliver more automation to the street car’s assembly.

The engine applied in the GT4 is the experimented with-and-real Toyota-sourced 3.five-liter V6 (not the new AMG 4-cylinder). Per standard, it’s fitted with a supercharger, and Lotus says it’s fantastic for up to four hundred horsepower with a 7,two hundred rpm redline. You get a 6-speed xTrac sequential transmission (the only transmission solution), and the vehicle is fitted with a minimal-slip differential. Braking is handled by race-spec Alcon discs and calipers, and Ohlins coilovers preserve the system in look at. In all, Lotus says the dry weight is two,778 lbs.
