Is the First Edition V6-only?

The least expensive model, MSRP. will be $79995. For about 4 months. It will then bump to $82.5. There is Lotus precedent for this.

Just an educated guess... $83,000 base + $3k for the forged wheels + $400 for painted calipers + $1k for KEF audio (unless any of these are part of the First Edition package already). Ideally, I really want the car to be under $85k after taxes, but I'd be amazed if that happens after I spec everything out.

I'm going to say $79,995 plus destination and delivery. All USD. First Edition, V6 manual without any options added.

It's still not clear to me why everyone thinks the Emira will cost 20% less than an Evora GT. It's the same engine and same transmission. Okay, they have a more efficient assembly process. Lotus was barely making money selling 2000-2500 cars at an average of around $100k in the US. Lotus profit was $9m in 2018 - it's very difficult to find info since they've been acquired. Even if they can make cars 15% cheaper, and sell 10000 for 15% cheaper that's not exactly a good return on Geely's investment of £500m?
