Lotus is celebrating 50 years since the birth of its Hethel factory, a place that becamed famous for producing light and very fast cars. To properly celebrate the anniversary, the British manufacturer is introducing a special edition of the Elise.
Lotus introduced today the new Elise S model, created for those who want the thrill of the track approved for the street. The car is derived from the Elise S Cup R, a car created only for the track.
Evolving from the road-going Elise S, Lotus is to present the mid-mounted, transverse, 1.8 litre Elise S Cup R. Boasting bespoke livery and aerodynamic body kit, the Elise S Cup R takes a purposeful stance on the iconic Elise aesthetic â€“ that points straight to the track.
