ABOUT THIS CAR
Proving that less is more, Lotus’ high performance MY17.5 Cup version of the famous Elise has shed a further 14 kg and increased power to 283 hp per tonne. Weighing in at 917 kg and capable of 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds, the Elise Cup 250 is the fastest ever road-going Lotus Elise. Delivered to the marque’s now famous ‘Lightweight Laboratory’, it emerged with a range of features, including a Lithium-ion battery, which slashes 10 kg of the weight, carbon fibre seats, reducing the weight by 6 kg, and ultra-lightweight forged alloy wheels, saving a further 1.5 kg. Designed to suit all sports car fans, the Lotus Elise Cup 250 is available for the first time as a roadster as standard, with a hard top available as an option.
The Elise Cup 250 carries over the motorsport-derived suspension and braking components from the Elise Cup 220, including an adjustable front anti-roll bar, Bilstein sports dampers and Eibach coaxial coil springs and double wishbone suspension. Braking is dealt with by AP Racing twin-piston front calipers and Brembo single-piston rear calipers that work in conjunction with the track-tuned ABS system. As standard, the Elise Cup 250 comes with a full Alcantara interior in red or black, with an optional Leather Pack available.
The MY17.5 Lotus Elise 250 Cup offered here at Hofmanns is a 2017 “17 Plate” finished in Kawasaki Green with Black Alcantara interior and Yellow contrast stitching. This 1 owner example has covered a mere 3,712 miles, aside from the standard specification this car has been fitted with Full Carpets, Sound Insulation, CD Player, Air Conditioning and Factory Hardtop.
Powered by a new higher-output version of the supercharged, 1.8-litre 4-cylinder engine, the Elise Cup 250 boasts 243 hp (246 PS) at 7200 rpm and 250 Nm of torque between 3500 rpm and 5500 rpm. Lotus Dynamic Performance Management (DPM) provides a ‘Sport’ mode, increasing throttle response, lowering traction slip thresholds and removing under steer recognition, allowing enhanced control before the system intervenes.
As with all our cars here at Hofmann’s the car will undergo a comprehensive pre sales inspection by one of our Lotus factory trained technicians.
