At this year's Autosport show, Lotus will debut the mid-mounted, transverse, 1.8-liter Elise S Cup R track car. Evolved from the road-going Elise S and boasting bespoke livery and aerodynamic body kit, the 2014 Elise S Cup R takes a purposeful stance on the iconic Elise aesthetic - that points straight to the track.

The Elise S Cup R's motorsport-specific map in the engine control module (ECM) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) proven aero pack ensure the Elise's small physique packs a mighty punch. With revised front splitter, barge boards, winglets, rear diffuser, floor extensions and rear wing, clever manipulation of air-flow creates extra downforce. Combined with adjustable dampers and springs, lap times are reduced by about 4 seconds on a 2.2 mile lap over the standard Elise S.

Rupert Manwaring, Head of Lotus Motorsport commented, "Developing the Elise S Cup R was a natural step following the success of the Exige V6 Cup and Cup R; with so many new markets becoming interested in motorsport, the Elise S Cup R gives us the perfect entry level track-car. Whether the focus is racing or simply developing your driving skills on a race circuit and having fun, the incredible handling and ease of use with low running costs make the Elise an intelligent choice."
