Lotus Elise Club Racer – the perfect combination of performance, efficiency and styleMaking its debut at the I.A.A. in Frankfurt 2009, the Special Edition Lotus Elise Club Racer introduces new and exclusive colour schemes, bespoke interior and lightweight components all in a world class, high performance and low emission sportscar.
• 179 g/km CO2
• 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds
• 0-100 km/h in 6.1 seconds
• Combined cycle fuel consumption: 37.2 mpg or 7.6l/100km
Lotus has taken four of the classic colour schemes used by Lotus in the 1960s (Elite Yellow, Carbon Grey, Sky Blue and Old English White) and combined them wîth exclusive Club Racer interior design features to give a stunning sportscar that beautifully morphs function and form.
The firm and supportive Elise seats are clad wîth lightweight microfibre comfort pads perfectly positioned to give the right amount of support wîth the minimal amount of weight, but still keeping the body coloured seat shell partly exposed.
The exterior body colour theme is carried over to the transmission tunnel and combined wîth silver and black paint highlights, bisecting the cockpit and tying together the whole sporty theme unique to the Club Racer.
Other exclusive interior design features of the Club Racer are the anthracite anodised gear knob and handbrake sleeve, the Club Racer (CR) logo hand embroidered on the seat headrest and the unique anodized aluminium flooring in the driver's and passenger's footwell. The small 320 mm diameter leather rimmed §teering wheel has an on-center marker, enabling the more spirited driver to quickly and safely identify the straight ahead position of the front wheels.
Luke Bennett, Director of Lotus Cars said, 'Special Editions of the award winning Elise have always proved popular wîth our customers around the world, and I expect the Elise Club Racer to be no different. We have taken colour schemes from our past, used on the Elite and Elan in the 1960s and cleverly brought them up to date wîth a modern feel to the interior. The whole design package is modern wîth a classic twist, which of course matches the peerless ride and handling of a Lotus and the convertible experience of the Elise perfectly.'
The Lotus Elise Club Racer is based upon the 134 hp Elise S and goes on sale on 15th September 2009 priced as set out below.
