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 has quick acceleration and excellent handling rivalling the DS E-TENSE and excels on technical tracks such as Rome and The Caribbean. However, due to its low top speed, it may struggle against the Ford Shelby GT350R and Dodge Challenger 392 Hemi Scat Pack. Because of 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 no speed when driving on rough or off-road surfaces.
In World Series multiplayer, a fully upgraded Lotus Elise Sprint 220 with no epic import parts applied easily dominates Bronze League 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.
