Lotus has unveiled the all-new Emira GT4 race car on the iconic Hethel test track.
The culmination of more than 70 years of innovation on the road and track, the Emira GT4 marks the start of an exciting new era in performance GT racing for Lotus. The return to world motorsport is a key pillar of the company's transformation from a UK sports car company to a global performance car business and brand. The project has been a collaboration with Lotus and RML Group.
The advanced composite bodywork makes the car exceptionally lightweight and is coupled with Toyota's race-proven 3.5-litre V6 engine and optimised GT4 aerodynamics derived from the road-going Emira's advanced exterior design.
BRAID wheels have been part of this project developing a custom designed forged aluminium wheel (9”x18” front & 11”x18” rear), achieving a minimum weight without sacrificing excellent performance.
