The Lotus Elise Cup 260 is a race car-derived limited production version of the Series 3 Lotus Elise roadster.

Description

In October 2017, Lotus unveiled the Elise Cup 260, a special version of its two-seater roadster.

Described by Lotus to be "the ultimate Elise", the Elise Cup 260 has a very limited production run of just 30 models, each costing £59,500. Its higher price is due in part to almost every previous Elise Cup option being fitted as standard, such as the Nitron dampers, carbon body panels and two-piece brake discs. Additional options for the Elise Cup 260 include titanium exhaust, "Championship Gold" paint, air-conditioning, a carbon-fiber hard top and mud flaps.

The Elise Cup 260 features a design similar to the Elise Race 250, which is a non-road-legal, competition-eligible version of the model series. Besides modifications to make the Cup 260 road-legal, its engine power is increased by 10bhp, and weight reduced by 15 kg, compared to the Race 250. At the same time, the car's downforce is increased by 44% due to added aero elements, such as the front vents, rear diffuser and large rear spoiler, the latter developed from the spoiler featured on the 3-Eleven track day car. In addition, the Cup 260 features the same double tail-light units as those seen on the Exige Sport 380. The result is that the Cup 260 produces downforce equal to nearly one-fifth of its dry weight when travelling at its top speed.

The Elise Cup 260 has the following specifications according to Lotus:

  • Engine: 1.8 litre supercharged Toyota 2ZR-FE Inline-4
  • Transmission: 6-speed Toyota EC60 manual with sport ratios
  • Power: 250 bhp (186 kW; 253 PS) at 7200 rpm
  • Torque: 265 N⋅m (195 lb⋅ft) at 5500 rpm
  • Acceleration: 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 3.8 seconds
  • Top speed: 151 mph (243 km/h)
  • Weight: 862 kg (1,900 lb) (dry weight)
  • Downforce: 180 kg (397 lb) at 151 mph (243 km/h)

Clive Chapman, the son of Lotus founder Colin Chapman, has endorsed the Elise Cup 260, stating:

Each and every one of the sports cars produced by Group Lotus today carries the true spirit of Lotus, laid down by my father nearly 70 years ago. I am extremely proud that his legacy and achievements are being acknowledged and celebrated by this iconic version of the Elise.
