The brand Lotus has released a video of the Emira in action, showing the highly anticipated V6 First Edition being tested on the Hethel test track. Havana Kershaw is driving the car.
First, I need to say a few words about Havana Kershaw. He is Director of Development and Integration for Lotus Automobiles. He also leads the department for the development of additional, exclusive parts and design technologies that make each Lotus car unique. In addition, Havan Kershaw is eager to test these very elements directly on machines.
Having tested the exclusive Lotus Emira V6 First Edition on the Hethel track, he shared his impressions, noting that this is exactly how a supercar should behave, when pressing the pedal, the engine picks up from 1500 rpm and continues to accelerate and accelerate in progression as the speed builds up.
Recall that the Lotus Emira V6 First Edition is equipped with a 3.5-liter turbocharged V6 engine with a capacity of 400 hp. and 420 Nm of torque. It was this engine that Lotus borrowed from the Toyota Motor concern, as it bears the Toyota 2GR-FE marking. A choice of 6-speed manual transmission or 6-band “automatic”. Thanks to this configuration, the supercar can accelerate from standstill to 100 km / h in just 4.3 seconds and reach a top speed of 290 km / h.
