Elise Sprint

Ensuring that this latest Elise remains true to the company’s DNA, the return for the Sprint badge – as used on historic models including the Elan – is designed to provide a highly attractive super-lightweight option sitting above the Elise Sport. Featuring a host of weight-saving items as standard, the new Elise Sprint offers the latest in efficient engineering to deliver a car that sets the standard at under 800 kg.

Offering 134 hp / 160 Nm of torque, the 1.6-litre naturally aspirated engine of the Elise Sprint has been specifically tuned to deliver a benchmark power-to-weight ratio and class leading efficiency. The car’s reduction in weight translates into quicker acceleration with 0-60 mph in 5.9 seconds, harder cornering and a power to weight ratio of up to 168 hp / tonne. Being so lightweight, emissions are extremely low with 149 g CO2 / km. Stopping power is provided by AP Racing twin-piston front calipers and Brembo single-piston rear-calipers – optional lightweight two-piece brake discs are also available. Like all Elise, the Elise Sprint benefits from Lotus’ Dynamic Performance Management (Lotus DPM) with user selectable driving modes.
