The Lotus Elise & Elise SC
The Elise is a driving experience like no other.
The Elise has been hailed as one of the best sports cars that money can buy, creating perfect harmony between driver and machine. The latest generation retains the supple road holding, fluid dynamics and tactile feedback of the original and combines this with efficient performance and low CO2 emissions. The incredibly lightweight and stiff chassis and finely tuned wishbones and dampers, allied to Lotus DPM (Dynamic Performance Management) and sticky Yokohama tyres, provide absolute handling precision. No other sports car tackles the open road with the verve of an Elise, where every driver input has such a clear and measurable effect on the car’s behaviour.
The name Lotus is synonymous with sublime handling and poised vehicle dynamics around the world. The Elise leads the way with its lightweight, state-of-the-art, extruded and bonded aluminium chassis, allied to competition standard wishbone suspension.
Engineered to deliver an exhilarating and involving driving experience, whilst remaining light to the touch and instantly responsive to all driver inputs. With engineering effectiveness comes efficiency, allowing Lotus to extract every aspect of dynamic performance from each component – remaining true to the principle “to add speed, add lightness”
