Punching well above its weight, the new Lotus Elise Cup 250 promises a scintillating blend of purity of purpose with performance at the apex of the recently revised Elise range.

Supercharged, lightweight and distilled from Lotus’ extensive motorsport knowhow, the new model packs 243 hp into a chassis designed to deliver the benchmark in responsive handling and haptic feedback. The car’s enhanced aerodynamics come from a number of additions including a new lightweight rear wing, front splitter, bargeboards and rear diffuser contributing to 125 kg of downforce at 140 mph.

As the latest car to receive the Cup treatment, the new Lotus Elise Cup 250 bridges the gap between road and track to offer racecar capabilities in a package that can be used every day. Focused on cutting weight and boosting performance, Lotus’ development team has built on the significant updates introduced for the latest Elise, which has already been hailed as a five-star car by the international motoring press. With weight reduced as low as 860 kg through advanced lightweight materials including carbon fibre, titanium and aluminium, the Elsie Cup 250 powers to 60 mph in just 3.9 secs.
