Since its release in 1996, the Lotus Elise has undeniably defined this iconic British marque, with its lightweight chassis, agile drive and exceptional handling.
The Lotus Elise Sport 220 is the result of over two decades’ worth of obsessive development. The defiant athletic exterior offers a road presence far greater than its size. This head-turning model also benefits from a range of improvements from previous incarnations, which include a 10kg mass reduction. Lighter body panels front- and rear-balance the aerodynamic downforce, and help achieve a kerb weight of just 924kg, making the Sport 220 the lightest Lotus out there. Not only that, the exposed aluminium gearshift mechanism saves a further 1kg and offers quicker and more tactile gear changes.
The Elise Sport 220 delivers stunning real-world performance. Boasting 217hp and 250Nm of torque, the 1.8-litre supercharged engine has been specifically tuned to deliver a benchmark power-to-weight ratio, plus an exciting soundtrack at all speeds! It propels the Sport 220 to 60mph in just 4.1 seconds. And this punchy performance arrives without compromise – the CO2 emissions are extremely low for the power on offer at just 173g/km.
