Lotus has revealed its all-new competition-spec Emira GT4 challenger recently. The concept race car has been developed in collaboration with RML Group and the automaker stated it as another milestone in the transformation of the brand towards its electrification goals. Lotus also, a few months ago, unveiled its last internal combustion engine model Emira.

Staying true to its racing DNA, Lotus' development team has focused on engineering to make the car more dynamic and provide the user with high-speed stability. The advanced composite bodywork by the automaker has made the car lightweight, that is, the car's dry weight stands at 1,260 kilograms. The company said that the car's exterior design will make it more aerodynamically abled. Lotus has used Toyota’s 3.5-litre V6 engine that will provide the racing car with a power output of 400 bhp and it has been paired with a six-speed xTrac paddle-shift gearbox.
