Elise CUP R Aero Kit coming...

The parts should be here by no later than middle of March of which I have 10 sets being fabricated which will include:
  • MY05-MY10 Front Splitter - $1,000
  • MY11 Front Splitter - $1,000
  • Side Skirts - $1,500
  • Rear Wing (includes brackets) - $2,500
  • MY05-MY10 Rear Diffuser - $1,000
  • MY11 Rear Diffuser - $1,000

If you purchase complete aero kit at time of sale, price is $5,500 (a savings of $500)

We did not bother fabricating side vents and from what I'm told, those can actually be ordered through Lotus.

CF version will also be available however price TBD.

I have a few people whom expressed interest already so I'll reach out to you first when I actually have the parts in hand.

Any questions, please pm me and I'll be more than happy to answer as much as I can.


Best regards,
Abe

As you know the aero bits are on a 2011 Elise with the new face lift however the only small alterations will be to the front splitter and rear diffuser. The rocker panels are the same so no alterations needed for side skirts. Once the first set is completed, I'll post pictures

quick question:
when you say "includes brackets", do you mean the pieces holding the wing, or the bracing structure that goes in the trunk?

I'm assuming a lot of modification would need to be done to make the diffuser fit, since the rear clams are different.

Correct hence why I have two different diffusers listed. Our Lotus master tech and his team have stated this to me..something about the belly pan etc.

Just an FYI of what we're doing. First off, everything is being built in-house by our Lotus master tech Aidan and his team. They are using 2 cars ('05 Elise & an Exige) to assure proper fitment.

Front Splitter
We realize the Elise front end differs from MY05 through MY10 than from MY11 so slight modifications will be made.

Side Skirts
MY05 through MY11 are the same rocker panels so it will fit with no problems and will be installed exactly how the Elise Cup R installs (I'll ask my tech how it's done).

Don't hold me to it but the Exige might flare out just a tad on the rocker panels than the Elise so a slight mod might occur.

Rear Wing
This should fit all models including Exige. The only comment I heard on this is that the bottom of the trunk differs a little so the brackets might change a little.

Diffuser
There will be some modification underneath the vehicle due to different belly pan.

Sorry if my answers aren't too specific however between running a store and having my tech give me an update every other day, I sometimes rely on memory which is sometimes not a good idea

We will show the parts on our test car once completed.

If you guys have any questions, please feel free to ask away, I will answer them the best I can.



Thanks,
Abe

Are the side air intakes available too? Or are they just the same as the current Elise model (i.e., not specific to the Cup R)? Thought they might be a nice alternate to the Exige-style side scoops.

05 Elise, ST, sports, touring, hardtop, DBA 4000 slotted discs, Ferodo DS2500 pads, Sector 111 gpan3, EP Tuning Quickrack, Pro Alloy rad, DS brace, HnT pad, front and rear tow hooks, CG lock, ORE double cup holder (caffeine for track); '86 911 Targa (sold); '68 MGB (being restored)

I am also interested,but for that price I would imagine I could get genuine lotus parts.
How close to oem is this? Are these molded from original oem parts?
