A modest increase in engine capacity to 1.8-litres, its induction supplemented by an Eaton supercharger, means that the power takes an upwards hike to an outstanding 217bhp (220PS). Select the first of the Elise Sport 220, six, close-ratio gears and the forwards delivery is guaranteed to startle. Its 237bhp/tonne (241PS/1000kgs) enables a V-max of 145mph (234kph). Combined fuel economy is given as 37.7mpg (7.5l/100km) and CO2 emissions are only 173g/km. Lotus proves that sports car ownership can remain affordable.
Responding to a demand for more power and torque, Lotus took its super-lightweight Elise Sport, added 200cc to the engine, along with an Eaton supercharger to turn ‘bristling’ into ‘blistering’ performance. Despite a dramatic power increase, the overall kerb weight of the Elise Sport 220 increases by only 105lbs (48kgs) over the stock Elise Sport. Its power to weight ratio is a significant 237bhp/tonne (241PS/1,000kg).
Underpinning every Elise Sport 220 is the most efficient, strongest and low weight extruded and bonded chassis-tub. It allows the suspension to work most efficiently, to provide unparalleled grip, a comfortable ride and a dynamic balance that is unquestionably excellent. An electronic differential lock (EDL) helps to tame any over-exuberance. The lightweight chassis is protected by safety zones at the front, rear and on both sides. LED supplementary lighting makes your Elise Sport 220 easier to see both day and night. Its advanced braking system works with the driver to avoid unfortunate incidents.
