New Lotus knocks four seconds off lap

New Lotus knocks four seconds off lap
THE Elise S Cup R takes its place in the stable alongside big brothers the Exige V6 Cup and Exige Cup R and the mighty Evora GT4 at the Autosport show in Birmingham this week.

Evolving from the road-going Elise S, Lotus is presenting the mid-mounted, transverse, 1.8-litre Elise S Cup R.

Boasting bespoke livery and aerodynamic body kit, the Elise S Cup R takes a purposeful stance on the iconic Elise aesthetic — that is on the track.The Elise S Cup R’s motorsport-specific map in the engine control module (ECM) and CFD proven aero pack ensure the Elise’s small physique packs a mighty punch.

With revised front splitter, barge boards, winglets, rear diffuser, floor extensions and rear wing, clever manipulation of air-flow creates extra downforce — and combined with adjustable dampers and springs, lap times are reduced by circa four seconds on a 2.2 mile lap over the standard Elise S.
