Elise Club Racer
The most tactile Elise ever– without losing an ounce of style. It wasn’t easy to find further areas for weight reduction in a car as light as the Elise 1.6, but with a lot of attention to detail and a passion for lightweight performance, Lotus has managed to make the Elise CR an amazing 24kg lighter than the standard Elise.
The new Elise CR is a revelation – a pure driving experience, and some of the best fun you can have on four lightweight wheels.
