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.

The Lotus Elise Cup 260 was added in the 2019 Holiday Update as a mid Class D car with the following statistics:

Performance

The Lotus Elise Cup 260 is a mid-Class D car with a moderately high maximum total top speed of 219.8 mph (353.9 km/h), very fast acceleration, very good handling, good drifting and moderately good nitro efficiency. Being a Festival car, the Elise Cup 260 has very low top speed for its rank unless it is full-PRO.

The Elise Cup 260 is a relatively rare car due to how expensive it is to upgrade and how useless it is without full upgrades applied. However, for those who do have this car at full-PRO, it is actually fairly useful and unique. The Elise Cup 260 has above-average performance compared to other cars near its rank. Notorious cars that are ranked relatively nearby to the Elise Cup 260 include the Peugeot RCZ R (D1285), Renault DeZir (D1288) and Porsche 959 (D1327).

The Elise Cup 260 has one of the best combinations of acceleration, handling and drifting compared to similarly-ranked cars. It is perhaps most comparable to the Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, featuring better nitro efficiency and worse drifting than the Camaro Z/28 (D1303), though otherwise similar performance overall.

Usage

The Lotus Elise Cup 260 is ranked slightly higher than both the Peugeot RCZ R and Renault DeZir, both of which have much better nitro efficiencies than the Elise Cup 260, so it can defeat both cars through sheer total top speed alone, if all three cars are compared at MAX+PRO or full-PRO. This fact is the main attribute that makes the Elise Cup 260 a reasonably attractive car for Multiplayer League, if one can afford to fully upgrade it. However, the Elise Cup 260 is at the mercy of the Porsche 959, Donkervoort D8 GTO, Ariel Atom V8 and Audi R8 e-tron Special Edition (all when down-tuned), all of which have much better nitro efficiencies than the Elise Cup 260, and especially so if they are higher-ranked. Overall, most of the competition in Multiplayer for the Elise Cup 260 consists of cars with very good nitro efficiencies, which makes it a fairly risky car to use in Multiplayer, even if the player is triple-boosted.

Price

The Lotus Elise Cup 260 was originally obtainable by reaching Tier 11 in the Winter Festival during December 19-30, 2019. At the time, viewing the car in the Tag Racing car selection menu showed a price of Tokens 1,000. However, the option to purchase the car was unavailable.

The Elise Cup 260 could be obtained during the McLaren Senna Festival Special during February 18-24, 2020 as a reward for claiming 10 spins. Players who already owned the car would receive 3 Kit cards instead.

The car could be obtained for the third time in the Exotic Rides W70 Festival by reaching tier 8 of the premium rewards. Players who already own the car would receive Fusion Coins 90,000 instead.

The Elise Cup 260 was available for purchase for Tokens 500 during October 16-29, 2020 for most players. Some players were unable to purchase the car at the time due to bugs.

As of the 2020 Halloween Update (October 31, 2020), the Elise Cup 260 is permanently available for purchase in the Garage at the price of Fusion Coins 90,000.

Pro Kits for the Elise Cup 260 require Fusion Coins 1,488,000 and 220 Kit cards.
