Lotus has launched four new Limited Edition Elises. The new Elise Classic Heritage Editions are a reference to their successful racing history.
There will be a total of 100 cars built. All four versions start from £46,250.00.
The black and gold references the livery of the Lotus Type 72D which Emerson Fittipaldi raced. Red, white and gold is like the Lotus Type 49B that Graham Hill raced in 1968. The blue, red and silver is inspired by the Lotus Type 81 of 1980 driven by Nigel Mansell, Elio de Angelis and Mario Andretti.
“Motorsport success has been at the heart of the Lotus philosophy for more than seven decades, and the Elise is our iconic roadster known around the world for its exceptional ‘For The Drivers’ performance. What better way to celebrate than by bringing these two pillars of our brand together, launching four new Classic Heritage cars which fans will instantly recognise?”Said Ema Forster, Head of Product Marketing.
