2017 Lotus Elise launched

2017 Lotus Elise launched 1Lotus Elise is relaunching its classic range with a bran new edition Sprint leading the update. Said adds models in carbon fiber to cut 41 kg and 789 kg dry weight hit. In other words, it’s a compact Lotus Elise that does not scrimp on power.

While cutting weight may have been the Elise Sprint’s raison d’être, if the result looks more visually pleasing then it’s all the better. An excellent example of that is the open-gate gear select mechanism. First debuting on the Exige Sport 350, Lotus’ even more aggressive coupe, the cutaway section loses unnecessary weight – 2.2 pounds alone, the automaker says – as well as exposing the mechanically handsome gears that apparently shift in a “more positive and direct” way ,

The 2017 Elise Sprint features a new exterior look thanks to updated front and rear bumpers, new taillights, matt black trim, special wheels and stripes. The company says that this updates reduce aerodynamic drag and stability of the car. The interior IS ALSO updated by body-color inserts, optional Alcantara and contrasting stitching, as well as an open gear lever gate.

This all translates to slightly Quicker 0-60 mph times for Elise Sprint Sport models over Reviews their counterparts. Both the 1.6-liter 134-horsepower Sprint and 1.8-liter 217-horsepower Sprint 220 models complete the run to 60 mph in a tenth of a second Quicker than the equivalent Sport versions, with times of 5.9 and 4.1 seconds respectively. Also the weight loss results in a price gain. For either Sprint models, you’ll end up paying an extra £ 5,000, the which is a bit over $ 6.100 at current exchange rates. Of course, the Elise is not available in the US anyway, so it’s a moot point.
