The Lotus Elise S at Lipscomb
The latest addition to the Elise range is the new supercharged S model, delivering 217 hp (220 PS) and 184 lbft (250 Nm) of torque - astonishing performance from such a lightweight car. The ultimate evolution of the Elise, it’s new 1.8 litre supercharged engine delivers instant acceleration with even more torque that’s accessible from low in the rev range. Select Sport mode and the throttle response tightens and DPM characteristics alter for more engagement.
Performance dynamics are matched aesthetically and aerodynamically. The impressive Elise S is distinguished by a rear wing that arches over the car’s hind quarters, creating more downforce than the standard rear clamshell.
Built in Performance
The name Lotus is synonymous with sublime handling and poised vehicle dynamics around the world. The Elise leads the way with its lightweight, state-of-the-art, extruded and bonded aluminium chassis, allied to competition standard wishbone suspension. The chassis is so stiff that it takes 9,500 Nm to twist it just one degree.
The Lotus Elise is engineered to deliver an exhilarating and involving driving experience, whilst remaining light to the touch and instantly responsive to all driver inputs. With engineering effectiveness comes efficiency, allowing Lotus to extract every aspect of dynamic performance from each component – remaining true to the principle “to add speed, add lightness”.
Superior on Track
A Lotus Elise is like a second skin channelling feedback into your hands and feet via the steering wheel and the pedals. Designed to deliver, it inspires confidence with precision control, perfect balance and pedigree dynamics. A truly modern evolution of the classic two-seat sports car, this is a Lotus that immerses you totally in the intensity of the drive, on road or on track.
Proof of the roadster’s prowess is the Lotus Cup race series: the Elise is as much at home on the circuit as it is on rural roads. It tracks superbly, sticking tight to the tarmac as you establish a rhythm and flow through the turns. It’s not only about how fast you go, but how fast your heart beats.
