Lotus reveals limited-run Elise Cup 260

Lotus Elise Cup 260

Next year the company the he founded will be celebrating the 70th anniversary of Lotus' beginnings, and the lightest and most hardcore Elise Cup yet will kick off the party.

According to the British sports car-maker, the Cup 260 is the ultimate Elise, built with racing in mind.

The Cup 250's lightweight carbon fiber and composite components have been carried over, including forged alloy wheels, two-piece aluminium brake discs, and a polycarbonate rear screen.

Lotusrides the special edition train almost as often as Jeep. The vehicle includes almost all Elise Cup options as standard, such as the sill covers, roll hoop cover, front access panel and engine cover, as well as the two-piece brake discs.

It also shares the same weight-saving aerodynamic parts as the Exige Cup 380 and Evora GT430 to create the "ultimate" street-legal Lotus Elise. Inside, the Elise Cup 260 features carbon race seats trimmed in black Alcantara with contrast red or yellow stitching, complemented with the cabin's exposed aluminium and carbon fiber elements.

"Our philosophy for producing extraordinary vehicles is world famous, but the new Elise Cup 260 goes beyond what many believed possible from our smallest auto", said Jean-Marc Gales, Lotus' CEO.

Government will ensure steps are taken to find the motives behind these", she said after chairing a meeting of officials here. The victims have said that unknown assailants cut their hair after knocking them unconscious with some spray.

While power is only up 10bhp on the Elise Cup 250, the new model has superior aerodynamics, with a lightweigh front clam panel with wider apertures, carbon front splitter, oversized rear wing and rear diffuser all helping to generate 180kg of downforce at 151mph.

With 250bhp on tap from the 1.8-litre four-cylinder supercharged engine and a kerbweight of 902kg, the Elise Cup 260 can accelerate from 0-62mph in 4.2sec, on to a top speed of 151mph. The Cup 260 is a tenth faster to 60 miles per hour, clocking in a time of 3.8 seconds.

Impressively, that's a 44 percent gain over the Elise Cup 250, resulting in greater grip levels and higher cornering speeds.

The exterior has been done up in gold and features a couple of wreaths meant to commemorate the 70th anniversary of Lotus' first vehicle.

Lotus can't stop making track-ready special edition cars. As befitting any Lotus, weight savings was first and foremost.

Prices start at a Porsche 718 Cayman GTS-rivalling 58,500 GBP ($77,143) in the UK. Not cheap, but few if any cars provide the pure, unadulterated driving experience of a Lotus.
