The Lotus story continues with a new icon: Emira. A car that doesn’t just turn heads but turns conventional thinking on its head, with its exotic supercar looks, everyday usability and enhanced comfort combined with class leading Lotus driving dynamics.
It’s everything you’d expect from a Lotus, but like nothing you’d expect. The journey towards a thrilling new future begins here.
Emira is a true sports car that builds on the legacy of past Lotus icons. Everything about it is – For The Drivers. Smart design and technology delivers enhanced stability, exceptional road handling and the sensation of a very low centre of gravity. This is a car that demands to be driven.
Influenced by the Evija electric hypercar, Emira has a stunningly contemporary look with sculpted surfaces and crisp feature lines. Bringing exotic looks and features to the sports car category.
Designed to put the driver at the very centre of the experience, with pure ergonomic design and instruments carefully placed for the most intuitive use. Modern materials, connected technology and soft touch finishes only enhance the driving experience.
Clever engineering means there’s no need for active aerodynamics. As downforce increases with speed Emira generates exceptional grip through corners, delivering precise and connected handling. The engineering doesn’t stop there. Our hugely experienced engineers at Hethel make sure every Emira is tuned to perfection, injecting each one with unmistakable Lotus spirit.
The Lotus Emira was added in the British Tour Season Update as a mid Class D car with following stats:
A grand total of 3,878,680 is required to fully upgrade the Lotus Emira from its stock rank: 2,518,680 for all upgrades, 560,000 to apply all 28 uncommon import parts, 320,000 to apply all 8 rare import parts, and 480,000 to apply all 4 epic import parts.
The Emira has a high top speed, average handling and nitro but slow acceleration. This makes it easy to compete with most Class D cars even for new players due to its top speed and backed up by its handling and nitro duration. It can rival the Mazda Furai, DS E-tense, Lotus Elise Sprint 220, and if controlled skillfully, the Bentley Continental GT3.
With its top speed, handling, and nitro duration, the Emira can perform well on all type of tracks but may struggle on curvy tracks such as The Caribbean or Buenos Aires as the Emira needs more time to speed up after the sharp turns.
Blueprints for the Emira is only available during its own weekend rampage, which players can get up to 28 blueprints if all conditions are completed every week.
