Lotus Elise Cup 250 Will Give Many Supercars A Nasty Surprise On The Track

Most hardcore Elise version yet might not look a lot different than the rest, but it gives a new meaning to the term ‘giant slayer’.

The Lotus Elise has been around for quite some time now, but this deprives nothing of its sheer talent to excite the driver.

The latest Cup 250 is replacing the Cup 220 at the top of the Elise’s range, giving it the title of the fastest street-legal Elise. Lotus has gone mental on the already-lightweight body of it, saving an additional 21kg for a total of 931kg (2,052 lbs) with power getting a bump to 243hp from the supercharged Toyota-sourced 1.8-litre engine.

Lotus also claims that the new Elise Cup 250’s new aero suit helps it generate true downforce which contributes massively around Hethel’s test track. Thanks to the company’s targeted revisions, the new range-topping Elise beats the Cup 220’s lap time there by four whole seconds.
