Strong and sturdy are the key element to Elise cars and this bold appearance is what makes these Lotus models stand out with a fierce attitude. Built around an extruded and bonded aluminium chassis which is robust and torsionally stiff - coming to an impressively light weight of just 68kg. The art of Lotus craftsmanship and the attention to smart design is what has constantly resulted in exceptional sports cars in every aspect. The new Elise Sport benefits from a range of improvements, including a 10kg mass reduction due to a number of new components. Latest changes to the body includes a redesigned lightweight front panel with a lower weight mesh pattern grille to provide a powerful aspect to the Elise. Introducing an advanced and clever development that lowers the weight even further - which involves the reversing and fog lights being mounted inboard. This reduces the weight by 0.3kg and visually enhancing the rear design to appear wider. All of these light weight components are fitted with expertise and purpose to enhance the performance and overall thrilling experience of the Lotus Elise.
Here we present the most practical city sports car yet. This top-down Lotus provides exceptional handling and performance, alongside lower emissions - all at a very competitive price. The 1.6-litre naturally aspirated engine provides exceptional performance and has been specifically tuned to deliver a bench-mark power to weight ratio and class leading efficiency. You can fully experience the thoughtful performance, even over less smooth surfaces, making it ideal for the city dweller. A truly modern evolution of the classic two-seat sports car, this is a Lotus that immerses you into the drive, every time. Breathtaking in its design, each inch has been created to be as aerodynamic, agile and nimble as possible as it speeds down the racetrack or the motorway. The smart reduction in weight translates into quicker acceleration with the ability to reach 0-60 mph in 5.9 seconds, harder cornering and extremely low emissions of 149g CO2/km. Stopping power is provided by AP Racing twin-piston front calipers and Brembo single-piston rear-calipers. A world class performance.
As with every Lotus, the interior is just as stunning as the exterior. Featuring the Elise's distinctive new styling, the Elise Sport integrates a new front and rear aesthetic. The cabin has been enhanced and refined - featuring a centre console and instrument panel with new graphics to make it easier to read. The state of the art technology provides a new in-car entertainment system, including iPod® connectivity and Bluetooth® functionality. Ergonomically designed bucket seats provide ultimate comfort, body colour accents and aluminium feature strongly on the interior, alongside an aluminium handbrake grip and gear-lever knob. Subtle, stylish and striking. Riding the Elise should inspire the greatest confidence, as precision, control and perfect balance is guaranteed every time due to its design and control system. Options for the new car include Alcantara® trimmed steering wheel, vent-surrounds and sills. Further enhancements can be specified, including a new paintwork colour: "Electric Light Blue" to join the Lotus core colour range.
