Latest Lotus Elise weighs 1759 lbs

Latest Lotus Elise weighs 1759 lbs 1Sprint trim line is available on the 134 horsepower 1.6-liter naturally aspirated Elise Sport and the 217 horsepower 1.8-liter supercharged Elise Sport 220. With the lighter weight the vehicle can reach 60 miles per hour in 5.9 seconds with the base engine or 4.1 seconds with the supercharged version. Power-hungry drivers will have to spend £39,300 ($48,585) for the Elise Sport 220, or £44,300 ($54,765) for the Elise Sprint 220.

Jean-Marc Gales, Lotus CEO, said: “Once again, the Elise continues to redefine what is possible in terms of adding lightness to a sports car. Whilst other manufacturers try to keep pace with Lotus’s weight reduction achievements, we’ve raised the bar beyond their reach.”

What’s cool is that all these lightweight parts can be individually specified for the cheaper Elise Sport and the Elise Sport 220 variants as well. Starting in May, the Elise can also be ordered with optional two-piece brake discs from AP Racing, saving 8.8 lbs., and carbon sill covers, because you might as well erase another 1.76 lbs. All these changes will make the Sprint accelerate to 60 mph in 5.9 seconds, while the supercharged 220 will get there in 4.1.

Lotus made some modifications to the Elise’s aesthetics as well, which applies across the entire lineup. The front and rear fasciae have been updated; the number of taillights is cut in half. It takes its new center console from the Exige. There’s even an optional infotainment system with Bluetooth and iDevice connectivity.
