It's effective at speeds as much as 240 km/h (150 mph). The Elise was named after Elisa Artioli, the granddaughter of Romano Artioli who was simply chairman of Lotus and Bugatti at the time of the car's launch. The Elise features a fibreglass body shell atop its bonded extruded aluminium chassis that provides a rigid platform for the suspension, while keeping weight and production costs to a minimum. In 2021 Lotus confirmed the Elise, Exige and Evora are to end production in 2021 and be replaced by way of a new family of models. The 2021 Lotus Elise is a two-seat, rear-wheel drive, mid-engined roadster conceived in early 1994 and released in September 1996 by the British manufacturer Lotus Cars. The car was heavier compared to the production type of that point and had a significantly more powerful 2.0-liter inline-4 engine. The production model was then unveiled with many changes, including the downsizing of the engine to 1.6 liters and 1.8 litre and different design with little cues extracted from the concept. The series 3 Lotus Elise first appeared as a design study alongside the Lotus Esprit concept at the 2010 Paris Motor Show as the "Lotus Elise Concept" in the autumn of that year, and was set to be launched next couple of years. A competition suspension package is available, from your local dealer, featuring Öhlins TTX 2-Way Adjustable Dampers, transforming the automobile for hard track use. Available as both a 2+0 or Lotus 2+2, with a selection of 6-speed manual or paddle-shift automatic transmissions, a wide variety of options allows you to specify your car or truck for enhanced GT comfort or greater track focus. Optional ‘J'hook brake discs improve the initial brake response and pad de-glazing. The stunning new Evora GT takes the Evora's unique attributes to spectacular new heights. Whilst the twisting tarmac disappears beneath you, the Evora flows, settling right into a rhythm, smoothing out rough surfaces, breathing with the trail for an enthralling, immersive driving experience. Its functional aerodynamics, bonded aluminum chassis, Bilstein dampers, and spring set-up intelligently requested road use. Consequently, focused driving is effortless with precise, intuitive steering allied to huge reserves of mechanical grip, agility, and poise. Low rider agility, precision, and response meet GT car refinement and comfort like never before. First and foremost a natural driver's car for the trail, the Evora GT proves that the worthiness of motorsport engineering extends far beyond the race track. It features the double taillight units and rear wing from the Exige Sport 380 and the Lotus 3-Eleven respectively. Other changes include increased top speed, acceleration, low weight and high downforce as a result of added aero elements. It is inspired by both hardcore variants of the Evora and Exige fall into line, the Sport 380 and the GT430 respectively. Power has already been uprated and is now 250 hp (186 kW; 253 PS) as a result of a revised supercharger. Lotus unveiled a hardcore version of the Lotus Elise called the Elise Cup 260. The 1.6 litre version was discontinued in 2018. The 2011 model was the last offered for street legal sale in the United States once the waiver from the United States Government's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for Lotus to construct and sell cars in the US without smart airbags expired in August 2011. Lotus unveiled a facelifted version of the 2nd generation Elise. The 1.8 litre Elise comes standard with a Magnuson R900 supercharger making 220 PS (162 kW; 217 hp). The new Lotus Elise headlights are now single units; triangular fit they are somewhat larger than the sooner lights. The cheapest version in Europe had a 1.6 litre engine to comply with Euro 5 emissions, with the exact same power output as the earlier 1.8 136 PS (100 kW; 134 hp). It had been also the sole Elise to utilize the Toyota 2ZZ-GE engine in the 2011 model year. The vehicle was heavier than the production model of that time, and had a significantly more powerful 2.0-litre inline-4 engine. The production model was then unveiled with many changes, like the downsizing of the engine to 1.6 litre and 1.8 litre and Lotus a different design with little cues taken from the concept. The series 3 2021 Lotus Elise first appeared as a style study alongside the Lotus Esprit concept at the 2010 Paris Motor Show since the "Lotus Elise Concept" in the autumn of this year, and was set to be launched within the next handful of years. The Malaysian-assembled Elise sold for double the buying price of its British-built counterpart as a result of local vehicle taxes. The Malaysian-assembled Elise was also exported to regional markets, including Japan, Hong Kong, Australia and New Zealand.The Malaysian spec Elises included a factory hard top, carpets and air con as standard although the air con was unreliable and ineffective. The 2021 Lotus Elise drivetrain imported complete and initially the bodywork was painted in the UK at Hethel just before export.
