Elise Cup 250

Dimostrando il motto Lotus 'less is more', la versione ad alte prestazioni Cup della leggendaria Lotus Elise è dimagrita di 21 kg ed ha guadagnato 26 CV. Con un peso di 931 kg, è in grado di scattare da 0 a 100 km/h in 4 secondi, confermandosi semplicemente la più veloce Elise mai prodotta.

Spinto da una nuova versione più evoluta del 1.8 4 cilindri sovralimentato, la Elise Cup 250 eroga 243 CV a 7.200 giri e 250 Nm di coppia tra 3.500 e 5.500 giri/minuto. Una nuova puleggia del compressore volumetrico e una nuova pompa del carburante ad alto flusso contribuiscono ad un peso/potenza pari a 261 CV / tonnellata.

Progettata per soddisfare tutti gli appassionati di auto sportive, la Lotus Elise Cup 250 è disponibile per la prima volta di serie in versione roadster, mentre l'hard top è disponibile come optional. Per coloro che desiderano ridurre ancor di più il peso della vettura e migiorare così le prestazioni, è disponibile un Carbon Aero Pack che consente di risparmiare ulteriori 10 kg, raggiungendo così i 921 kg complessivi.

Il kit aerodinamico della Elise Cup 250 offre 66 kg di carico aerodinamico a 160 km/h e di ben 155 kg alla velocità massima di 250 km/h. Una perfetta efficienza del flusso d'aria su ogni centimetro della carrozzeria è la chiave per avere un'auto ottimamente bilanciata. Il Carbon Aero Pack opzionale sostituisce componenti di serie come splitter, diffusore e ala posteriore con controparti alleggerite in fibra di carbonio.
