Lotus rolls out new variants

Lotus rolls out new variantsThe Sport name is not just for show; both variants benefit from a significant weight reduction of 10 kg, which is a lot when you consider that the Elise is already one of the lightest cars on sale. The Sport tips the scales at just 866 kg and the Sport 220 914 kg, benefiting handling and performance.

With prices starting at £29,900 (€39,900) for the Elise Sport, it’s not exactly cheap to join the Lotus owner’s club. It would be cheaper to go for the fourth-gen Mazda MX-5 Miata or the soon-to-be-facelifted Toyota GT 86, but compared to those two, the Lotus Elise is a driving-centric precision instrument.

Want to put one in your driveway? Tough luck, as the Elise remains forbidden fruit for the U.S. market because it doesn’t meet our safety regulations. With a bit more coin, however, you can get your hands on the larger and much more powerful Lotus Evora 400 on our shores.
