Lotus has shown the GT4 version of its new Emira sportscar at its Hethel test track in Norfolk, UK. Since the company announced it would build a racing variant back in September 2021, the car has undergone an intense track testing program, both in the UK and at the Portimão circuit in Portugal.
Gavan Kershaw, director of vehicle attributes at Lotus, said, “We knew we had an excellent starting point for the Emira GT4 because of all the work done to make the road car such a great performer. Showing off the GT4’s dynamic capabilities on the Hethel test track – which has shaped countless race cars and their drivers since Lotus moved to the site in 1966 – is a very special moment for me and all the team involved.”
Lotus aims to fulfil customer orders for the Emira GT4 race cars during 2022 and increase production for 2023 according to customer demand.
