How Much Power Does The Lotus Emira Make?
The mid-engined sports car is powered by the Toyota 2GR-FE engine, which is a 3.5-liter V-6 mill. It is paired with an Edelbrock 1740 supercharger and puts out 400 horses.
You can have it with either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic gearbox. The torque figures vary for both the transmissions. The Emira with the three-pedal setup will churn out 310 pound-feet of twist, whereas the automatic Emira will produce 317 pound-feet of torque.
