Just spied the upcoming Lotus Emira. Quite lovely. I’m estimating it will start at about 80,000 USD.
Of course, look for US dealers to mark it the hell up.
I can’t deny it. It’s the first Lotus anything to move me since the V8 Lotus Espirit. I even love the blue it comes in. The way I see it, I would rather have the Emira, than have a summer beach cottage in the South of somewhere. The Emira could be that cottage, albeit a bit cozy for comfort.
I will opt for the manual transmission with the Toyota V6 engine, and the optional pipe and slippers ;).
