Lotus Announce new Roger Becker Limited Edition Elise and Exige S

New Lotus Elise and Exige Special Editions

Roger Becker, former Director of Vehicle Engineering for

Lotus is celebrated with a series of special edition versions of

the final run of European specification 1.8 litre Elise and

Exige sports cars.

In celebration of Roger Becker’s 44 year career at Lotus and retirement in

January, there will be a series of Lotus Elise and Exige sports cars in bespoke

Roger Becker Special Edition specification produced and set for release over

the next six months.

The Elise and Exige Roger Becker Special Editions will both be specified to a

high level with Sports and Touring packs as standard. The Elise Roger Becker

Special Edition has a supercharged 220ps 1.8 litre engine which blesses it

with a 0-60mph time of 4.3 seconds (0-100kmh in 4.6 seconds). The Lotus

Exige Roger Becker Special Edition uses the range topping 260ps

supercharged and intercooled 1.8 litre engine which endows it with a 0-60

mph in 4.5 seconds and a phenomenal aerodynamic down force figure of

92.5lbs (42kg) at 100 mph (160kmh).

Roger Becker said, “I am honoured that Lotus has named these two special

editions after me, especially as it allows me to offer the customer my favourite

specifications. The past 44 years have been an incredible journey and I’m

looking forward to watching Lotus progress in the future, I have no doubt that

the company will continue to go from strength to strength.”

Both the Elise and the Exige Roger Becker Special Editions are available in

four colours, Aspen White, Starlight Black, Solar Yellow & Carbon Grey and

each one is identified by a numbered interior plaque, Roger Becker’s signature

on the rear bodywork and special monochrome Lotus nose badge.

Andreas Prillmann, Chief Commercial Officer for Lotus Cars said, “I would like

to thank Roger for his dedication to Lotus It’s fitting that an exclusive number

of the last of the 1.8 litre Elise’s and Exige’s for Europe are dedicated to

Roger, who has been instrumental in the development of so many Lotus cars

over the years, in particularly the Evora, the Exige and the recent versions of

the Elise. Not only has his extensive knowledge and learning been passed on

to our team of talented and skilled engineers, but also his passion for the

Lotus brand and heritage has helped Lotus grow into the world class

organisation that it is today.”

The new, super efficient 2011 Model Year Lotus Elise, introduced to the

market earlier this year, will continue for all markets where it is sold including

Europe.
