" This weekend, Lotus will unwrap the Elise S Cup R at the Autosport in Birmingham, UK.

The carmaker's latest track toy comes with a 1.8-liter supercharged four pot and weighs in at just 924 kg. An unspecified power output is sent to 16/17 inch alloys via a six-speed manual, while the Elise S Cup R also boasts a sports-tuned suspension, high-performance brakes, a “triple-pass” radiator, and body upgrades such as an updated front splitter, rear diffuser, floor extensions and rear wing.
Over a 2.2-mile lap, the Cup R is said to be four seconds quicker than the regular Elise S. The cabin features a FIA-compliant roll cage, a HANS-compatible racing seat, quick-release steering wheel and an optional race-spec passenger seat with four-point harness.

Priced at £39,125, the Lotus Elise S Cup R can be used at this year's Lotus Cup racing series. "

Gotta love it...

Speaking to Autocar, Lotus Motorsport's Rupert Manwaring said: "A lot of the emerging countries need an economical, simple to run race car."
Yep, just what an emerging country needs... not better economic development, not better infrastructure, not better geopolitical stability, but yep, they sure need an economical simple to run race car.

For all those in the bay area, I just saw this comment posted on Facebook: "That is exactly the color of the Elise Cup R we ordered at Boardwalk Lotus. Can't wait to see it! Carl mentioned that the US gets the first builds.”"

is it my computer or are those pictures blurry/low res when you enlarge them?



you can thank DOT/NHTSA for that.
But, but, but....they're doing it for our safety.

Frankly, I wish they'd leave safety decisions up to the folks who have skin in the game. Seems this government has forgotten that they work for us, not the other way around.
