Available at Park's Lotus.
The 2020 Lotus Elise model range begins with the torchbearer – The undeniably supercharged, charge-cooled Elise Sport 220. Those looking for a more invigorating, track focused and downforce generating drive can opt for the performance delivering Elise Cup 250.
Featuring lighter front and rear body panels, the Lotus Elise Sport 220 weighs just 924kg, making it the lightest Lotus available. Experience the ultimate adrenaline rush felt by the power of full throttle acceleration, through the poise, the balance, the delicacy and the powerful connection between car and open road. The exposed gear linkage saves weight yet adds even more precision and mechanical tactility and the unassisted steering remains an industry benchmark for intuitive response.
The Elise demands attention from every angle. At first glance, you are greeted with an aerodynamically optimised rear wing, front splitter, rear diffuser and side floor-extensions. Make the Lotus your own with the choice of 12 exclusive paint options including Solid Yellow and Metallic Light Blue. The 220 integrates a new front and rear aesthetic. Improvements are more than just skin deep with this model, the extended rubber elements mounted on the flat underside and ahead of the front wheel, paired with an additional diffuser vane at the rear, modify airflow under the vehicle, improving stability and reducing drag.
Take a seat in the Sport 220 and enjoy the luxury of a leather handbrake sleeve and polished aluminium gear knob. The cabin benefits from a new centre console and the option of carbon sill covers for an added sleek appearance. Enjoy first class comfort with technical fabric sports seats, part leather interior, air conditioning and sound insulation and stay entertained on every adventure with two front-mounted speakers with Bluetooth compatibility.
Offering 217hp and 250 Nm of torque, the 1.8 litre supercharged, chargecooled four-cylinder engine on the 220 has been specifically tuned to deliver a benchmark power-to-weight ratio and class leading efficiency. The Sport 220 erupts from zero to 60mph in a mere 4.2 seconds, on to its maximum speed of 145mph. As a result of its nimble weight, the 220 produces impressively low emissions with 173g of CO2/km. Stopping power is provided by AP Racing twin piston callipers up front and Brembo single-piston callipers at the rear.
The Lotus Elise Sport 220 is an athletic culmination of over twenty years of Elise development and delivers unsurpassed driver involvement at all road speeds. Sit inside, and let the Elise take you to a new dimension.
