Elise Sport 220
The supercharged Elise S, delivers 217 hp and 184 lbft (250 Nm) of torque – astonishing performance from such a lightweight car. The ultimate evolution of the Elise, its new 1.8 litre supercharged and charge cooled engine delivers instant acceleration with even more torque that’s accessible from low in the rev range. Select Sport mode and DPM characteristics alter for more engagement.
Performance dynamics are matched aesthetically and aerodynamically. The impressive Elise S is distinguished by a rear wing that arches over the car’s hind quarters, creating more downforce than the standard rear clamshell.

6 Speed manual
Put yourself in complete control of the driving experience with the slick shifting 6 speed manual transmission, featuring sports ratios perfectly matched to the engine configuration and driving dynamics.
Dynamic performance management
Lotus DPM (Dynamic Performance Management) adds to the Elise‘s world leading handling by offering extra stability when the high levels of grip are exceeded. A selectable Sport mode takes DPM one step further, allowing the driver to safely explore the limits further still.
Wheel & tyres
A range of specially selected lightweight alloy wheels subtly enhance the way your car looks and drives. These are mated to bespoke compound Yokohama AD07 tyres specifically developed to produce a tyre that works in perfect harmony with the suspension and chassis.
The Elise’ aerodynamic styling incorporates a unique rear diffuser design that both harmonises airflow underneath the rear of the car, and also provides clean and efficient lines to the underbody, with the exhaust system exiting through its middle.
Headlamps and rear lights
The highly distinctive headlamps incorporate hi-tech LED daylight running lights and indicators, while the rear LED brake light cluster is instantly recognisable.
Function is not at the sacrifice of form on the Elise. Wherever you look on you will find attention to detail, such as the machined aluminium petrol filler cap.
