With the Elise CR, Lotus has gone even further to deliver the most tactile Elise ever – without losing an ounce of style. It wasn’t easy to find further areas for weight reduction in an already incredibly light car, but with a lot of attention to detail, Lotus has managed to make the Elise CR up to an amazing 24 kg lighter than the standard Elise. It’s a revelation – a pure driving experience, and some of the best fun you can have on four lightweight wheels.
Powered by the same 1.6-litre engine as the standard Elise, this stripped-back racer is an uncompromised sports machine that doesn’t just deliver on the road. Eibach anti-roll bar and springs plus Bilstein sports dampers mean the Elise CR provides fingertip responsiveness on the racetrack too. Handling is assisted further with the latest Lotus Dynamic Performance Management (DPM) system, and selectable Sport setting, giving the driver ultimate power and control.
The Elise CR comes without a soft top, but if required either a soft top or hard top can be added as an option.
