Lotus Emira Bookings Hit A High 80 Units In Malaysia
Emira selling price starts from RM456k without import duty for Malaysians.
This all new Lotus supercar arrives under the financial and technology support of Geely Holdings after the takeover from Proton.
This is probably the last fuel fed Lotus supercar to be produced and destined to be a modern classic with true petrol heads.
Powering this Lotus Emira is a Lotus-honed 3.5-litre supercharged V6 engine, mid-mounted behind the two seats. Developing 400hp, it’s mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox with a visible gear-change mechanism and hydraulic power-assisted steering.
Launched in Malaysia under a new brand guardian in April 2022, the Emira already has 80 plus bookings and rising and Lotus Cars Malaysia is ready to look after each customer with their brand new service and restoration center.
In case you were wondering, there are seven interior colour choices, all available at no extra cost. They are red, black, grey and tan Nappa leather, as well as black Alcantara with either red, yellow or grey stitching. Satin chrome trim finishers, white interior mood lighting and Lotus-branded sill kick plates complete the premium look.
Inside the Emira, the seats feature 12-way adjustability and two memory presets linked to the door mirrors (driver’s seat only). Climate control, cruise control, keyless start and selectable drive modes are all included.
For the driver’s entertainment when in heavy traffic there is Apple CarPlay and Android Auto which are both integrated into the Emira V6 First Edition, supported by Bluetooth and USB/12v sockets.
The 10-channel/340W premium audio system has been developed in partnership with respected British brand KEF and includes DAB digital radio.
All functions are accessed through a 10.25-inch centrally mounted touch-screen, with driver feedback through a 12.3-inch TFT instrument cluster ahead of the multi-function steering wheel.
Three more option packs are fitted as standard to the car, making four in total.
The Drivers Pack gives customer the choice of Tour or Sport suspension with Goodyear Eagle F1 Supersport tyres, or Sport suspension with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres.
The Design Pack adds privacy glass, sports pedals, a black Alcantara headliner, and the choice of black, red, yellow or silver painted brake callipers. Lotus-branded foot-well mats are also included.
The Convenience Pack adds front parking sensors, rear reversing camera, rain-sensing wipers with aero blades, auto-dimming mirrors and a rear luggage storage net.
Options available at extra cost include a six-speed automatic gearbox with paddle shift and the Black Pack, which colours the roof, cantrails, mirror backs, rear Lotus badge and exhaust finisher.
An updated version of the Emira First Edition configurator is now live at www.lotuscars.com, allowing customers to fully spec their car.
