The Lotus Elise Sprint 220 is a high-performance version of the Lotus Elise sports coupe.
In March 2017, Lotus announced the special edition 'Sprint' models of the Elise. For the Elise Sprint, Lotus used several weight-saving techniques to cut the car's weight down to 798 kg (1,759 lb). To achieve the 40kg weight saving, some body parts are made in carbon, as well as the seats. The backlight glass is made of polycarbonate, and the lightweight battery is a Lithium-ion model. Wheels are the usual size, but forged instead of cast alloy. The Sprint can be had with either a 1.6-litre naturally aspirated engine, or a 1.8-litre supercharged engine, available for the Sprint 220 version. The former has a 0-60 mph (97 km/h) time of 5.9 seconds, while the Sprint 220 can accelerate from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 4.1 seconds. Dampers are uprated, as on the Elise Cup models.

The Lotus Elise Sprint 220 was added in the Community Update as a high-end Class D car with the following statistics:
When upgraded, the Lotus Elise Sprint 220 has quick acceleration and excellent handling, rivalling the DS E-TENSE, as well as a relatively tight drift radius. In addition, due to its extremely high nitro efficiency and acceleration, the Elise can often quickly reach and easily sustain its maximum possible speed using only Level 1 nitro, thus making it less reliant on nitro pickups or jumps than most other cars. Its high handling stat means it loses very little speed when cornering, or driving on rough or off-road surfaces. The Elise's main drawback is its very low maximum top speed, which is even lower than the maximum top speed of a fully upgraded Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X or DS E-TENSE.
Because of its high acceleration, handling, and nitro stats, the Lotus Elise Sprint 220 excels on technical tracks, such as Rome and The Caribbean. However, its low top speed means it may struggle against faster cars like as the Ford Shelby GT350R and Dodge Challenger 392 Hemi Scat Pack, especially on tracks with long straights, such as Cairo or the Himalayas.
The Lotus Elise Sprint 220, once fully upgraded without epic import parts, dominates the Bronze League in World Series multiplayer and can still be a match for most cars at the lower end of Silver League provided its driver exploits its strengths and does not wreck.
