Track-only Lotus Elise S Cup R revealed

Lotus Motorsport has unveiled the Elise S Cup R, which starts at a quite reasonable £39,125 + VAT and ready to compete in the 2014 Lotus Cup racing series.

The Elise S Cup R features bespoke livery and aerodynamic body kit, which includes a front splitter, barge boards, winglets, rear diffuser, floor extensions and rear wing.

Power comes from a supercharged 1.8-litre DOHC 4 cylinder engine linked to 6-speed manual gear box as standard.

Performance specs were not released, but the engine performance is enhanced over the road-going Elise S thanks to a motorsport-specific engine control module.

There are also adjustable dampers and springs, roll cage, forged alloys, racing seat, quick release steering wheel, fire extinguisher, brake pad upgrade and polycarbonate rear window.

Weighing 924kg, the Elise S Cup R car lap times are reduced by 4 seconds on a 5km lap over the standard Elise.

The Lotus S Elise Cup R is eligible for entry to the production class in the 2014 Lotus Cup series which
operates under the banners Lotus Cup UK, Lotus Cup Europe, Lotus Cup Italia, Lotus Cup USA, Lotus Cup
Japan, Lotus Cup Thailand, Lotus Cup China and Lotus Ladies Cup.
