Lotus has a remarkable history of making winning racing cars. The iconic British sports car manufacturer has been making lightweight sports cars for both the road and track for the last 70 years. The 2023 Lotus Emira GT4 is Lotus’ latest sports car designed to compete in both national and international GT4 class sports car championship series and the last of Lotus’ gasoline-powered models. Our team at Prestige Imports in North Miami Beach, FL, is excited to tell you about the 2023 Lotus Emira GT4 and the kind of performance it offers, so stick around.
What Engine Powers the 2023 Lotus Emira GT4?
The 2023 Lotus Emira GT4 is the racing car version of the 2023 Lotus Emira with a homologated performance engine sourced from Toyota. And since the Emira will be Lotus’ final gas-engined model, Lotus has gone all out on improving the performance of the racing-spec Emira GT4. For instance, the Emira GT4 has been hand-built with lightweight motorsport components and aerodynamics to meet the latest GT4 safety standards.
Under the hood of the 2023 Lotus Emira GT4 lies a Lotus-tuned 3.5-liter Toyota 2GR engine with a Harrop TVS 1900 supercharger. The V-6 is mated to a paddle-shifted Xtrac 6-speed sequential transmission with a limited-slip differential.

How Powerful is the 2023 Lotus Emira GT4?
The 3.5-liter V6 of the Emira GT4 churns out 400 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and redlines at 7,200 rpm. Although Lotus hasn’t mentioned the torque figures of the Emira GT4, we can assume it’s around the same as the 3.5-liter Toyota V6-powered Lotus Exige Sport 410, which is around 310-pound feet of torque at 3,500 rpm.
The impressive power output combined with a 2,866 pounds dry weight and sleek aerodynamic design means the 2023 Lotus GT4 can launch from 0-60 mph in just 4.0 seconds on its way to a top speed of 180 mph.
