Track-only 2014 Lotus Elise S Cup R officially unveiled

Article by Christian Andrei, on November 10, 2013

Following the success of the Exige V6 Cup and the Exige V6 Cup R, Lotus Motorsport introduced the Elise S Cup R. The new track-only model comes with an aggressive body kit consisting of a new front splitter, redesigned side skirts, a rear wing as well as an air diffuser with integrated exhaust.

Moreover, we find a tow hook in the front grille, polycarbonate rear screen, forged alloy wheels wrapped in high performance Yokohama Advan Neova AD07 LTS tires. Inside, we find a FIA compliant rollcage (just like on the previous Cup versions), FIA compliant fire extinguisher, 6 point race harness (driver seat), hans compliant race driver’s sea and a quick release steering wheel.

Under the hood, there is a mid-mounted, transverse, 1.8 litre 2ZR-FE engine bolted to a six-speed manual transmission. Moreover, the vehicle comes with new brake pads, single way adjustable dampers and a motorsport specification triple-pass radiator.

As an option Lotus offers air conditioning, race passenger seat with 4 point race harness fitted and ultra-lightweight motorsport wheels. The total weight of the car is just 924 kg. If you want one, the Lotus Elise S Cup R is priced at £39,125 + VAT. [source: Lotus]
