Chassis, Elise,subframe


The name Lotus is synonymous with sublime handling and poised vehicle
dynamics around the world. The Elise leads the way with its lightweight, state-of-the-art, extruded and bonded aluminium chassis, allied to competition standard wishbone suspension. The chassis is so stiff that it takes 9,500 Nm
to twist it just one degree.
The Lotus Elise is engineered to deliver an exhilarating and involving driving experience, whilst remaining light to the touch and instantly responsive
to all driver inputs. With engineering effectiveness comes efficiency, allowing
Lotus to extract every aspect of dynamic performance from each component
– remaining true to the principle “to add speed, add lightness”.



A Lotus Elise is like a second skin channelling feedback into your hands and feet via the steering wheel and the pedals. Designed to deliver, it inspires confidence with precision control, perfect balance and pedigree dynamics. A truly modern evolution of the classic two-seat sports car, this is a Lotus that immerses you totally in the intensity of the drive, on road or on track.

Proof of the roadster’s prowess is the Lotus Cup race series: the Elise is as much at home on the circuit as it is on rural roads. It tracks superbly, sticking tight to the tarmac as you establish a rhythm and flow through the turns.  It’s not only about how fast you go, but how fast your heart beats.

Since its launch, the Elise has been hailed as one of the best sports cars that money can buy, creating perfect harmony between driver and machine. The latest generation to carry the evocative name retains the supple road holding, fluid dynamics and tactile feedback of the original and combines this with efficient performance and low CO2 emissions.
The incredibly lightweight and stiff chassis and finely tuned wishbones and dampers, allied to Lotus DPM (Dynamic Performance Management) and sticky Yokohama tyres, provide absolute handling precision. No other sports car tackles the open road with the verve of an Elise, where every driver input has such a clear and measurable effect on the car's behaviour.

In fluctuating traffic conditions the ‘SPS’ (Serial Precision Shift) automated manual version with paddle shift control provides a more relaxed transport mode thanks to its automatic shift selection.
