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. Of course, a vibrant performance envelope is helped immeasurably by the weight conscious nature of the Elise. The Elise Sport 220 is the result. Despite a dramatic power increase, the overall kerbweight of the Elise Sport 220 increases by only 105lbs (48kgs) over the stock Elise Sport. As a result, its power to weight ratio is a significant 237bhp/tonne (241PS/1,000kg). The result is soul-stirring performance to keep you ahead of the crowd. Driving purity in reality.
