Elise S Cup


Elise S Cup on Track Fr3Qtr action yellow


The Elise S Cup has the same unmistakable and unique aerodynamics as the ‘R’ version and delivers significantly enhanced dynamic performance over the standard
Elise S. The most track focused of the road-going Elise range, carrying the ‘Cup’ brand synonymous with the Lotus Motorsport division, it is positioned above the Elise, Elise S and Club Racer in terms of price and levels of extremity.

Designed for driving enthusiasts looking for a road car that can be taken on track days with ease, the Elise S Cup is a compelling alternative to race biased products. The standard car can be upgraded with a selection of road and track options which can be introduced according to preference.
