Introducing a special car to truly get excited about, the fastest Elise to date, the Lotus Elise Cup 250.


Less is more when it comes to the design and craftsmanship of this Lotus Elise model. Due to the 21 kg reduction in weight, the lightweight Elise Cup 250 has gained a respectable 26 horsepower. The total weight of this car comes to just 931 kg, which allows it to reach top of the class speeds in very little time and with complete ease. The smart manufacturing involves a change in chassis, structure and interior which has resulted in a power to weight ratio of just 261 hp/tonne (264PS/ 1000kg). This really is a car that can deliver, and proves itself to be the fastest road-going Lotus Elise ever.


Truly is a high performance car that represents the ultimate Elise capability. A car created for those drivers who enjoy the thrill and daring ability of a powerful sportscar that never fails to impress. Powered by a high-revving supercharged 1.8-litre four cylinder engine that produces an exhilarating 243bhp. You can really push the limits when you take to the wheel, as this Lotus Elise model can reach 0-60 mph in just 3.9 seconds and has a top speed of 154 mph. Quality driving at its greatest.


The new and revised look of the Lotus Elise Cup 250 has focused on clever aerodynamics to provide a smooth and confident driving experience. This is what makes the unique method of Lotus design so desirable, as you can feel utter power and precision when behind the wheel. Featuring a new front splitter, side sills, rear diffuser and wing to produce 66 kg of downforce at 100 mph. The black soft-top is standard on the Elise Cup 250, so you can look forward to those sunny days, feeling the rays and letting the roof down. A perfect way to really understand the speed and ability that this supercar can reach.


A head-turning presence on any road, this Elise showcases a sporty and confident appearance that makes an instant impression. The sportscar nature of Lotus Elise models can be appreciated with the styling and precision in the slightest details. The interior cabin immediately exudes quality with the full Alacantara® interior, available in red or black, carbon fibre race seats and an option Leather pack in black, red or tan. There is no compromise on comfort, so you can immerse yourself in the full luxury Elise experience.
