At RM1,131,800 the Emira is the most expensive Lotus sports car ever for Malaysians as the last expensive Lotus was the Evora which arrived in Malaysia in January 2016 for just RM600,000.

In case you did not know this, Lotus Cars is not longer part of Proton Cars. Zhejiang Geely Holding Group (Geely Holding) in September 2017 completed the transaction to purchase a majority stake in the British luxury sports brand Lotus.

Then in August 2018 Lotus Cars got a hefty 1.9 billion investment from Geely and the plan was to build a brand new factory in China.

There are a few versions of the Emira and this is the V6 version that is powered by a 3.5-liter supercharged engine that like the Evora, is mid-mounted behind the two seats. This engine delivers 400 horsepower and is mated to a proper six-speed manual gearbox which is sadly missing in many new sports cars today.

Meanwhile, in case you were wondering, the Emira arrives with 20-inch ultra lightweight V-spoke alloy wheels shod with Goodyear Eagle F1 tires. You have the option of requesting and also paying more to get a sport suspension with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires.

Interestingly, the new owners, Geely have upgraded the previous ‘spartan looking’ Lotus cabin with a class act luxury sports car cabin to rival Porsche, Audi and also BMW. You have a premium audio system from KEF that produces 340W and it is Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability.

Just like its rivals, all the functions are accessed through a 10.25-inch centrally mounted touchscreen with driver feedback through a 12.3-inch TFT instrument cluster ahead of the multi-function flat bottom sports steering wheel.

You can choose to get an automatic gearbox and more comfort features like parking sensors, rear reversing camera, rain-sensing wipers with aero blades, auto-dimming mirrors and a rear luggage storage net, which means it is no longer a real Lotus sports car but a commuter sports car.
