Fast Times With Lotus Emira

Our trio of petrolheads return to discuss the biggest headlines in the automotive industry, complete with a review of Lotus' latest sports car.

Looking at some market movements in Europe, BMW looks set to upgrade its affordable performance SUV with a new model of the X1, kitted with the most powerful four-cylinder engine to date plus various other M-specific tech making it the most powerful iteration of the X1 to date.

Also in the news are Toyota, who've just announced a second generation of the CH-R compact SUV, this time with a hybrid powertrain in tow. In the two wheels arena, Daniel also got a feel of an electric motorbike, taking the Blueshark R1 scooter for a spin.

We then discuss YB Anthony Loke's recent idea on specific car plates for electric cars, breaking down the concept to highlight the pros and cons of this move. We round off with a blooming review of an understated but powerful sports car, as Daniel got behind the wheels of the Lotus Emira.
