Over and above the standard 250 Cup specification, our GP has the following factory options: Floor Mats, Interior Colour Pack, Gold Stitching, Leather-trimmed Sills, Carbon Fibre Seats, Alcantara Steering Wheel, Mars Gold Exterior Colour Pack, Y Spoke Forged Alloys, Air Conditioning, Stereo with 2 Front Speakers, Sound Insulations, cruise control, and is supplied with a factory hard top in matt black & indoor/outdoor cover.
2018 marks the 70th birthday for Lotus Cars and it wouldn’t be a proper Lotus celebrations without the traditional colours of Black and Gold, which have been applied to the very limited Elise GP Cup 250. Echoing the Team Lotus 72 F1 car, the exterior has gold accents and wheels that are set against the black base colour, whilst in the cabin you’ll find plenty of gold-stitched leather and alcantara and the Lotus crest embroidered in the headrests. Elsewhere, there’s a nod to the Hethel-based manufacturer’s 13 Formula 1 titles.
Based on the MY17.5 Cup 250, which proves 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.
All vehicles supplied through Hofmann’s have funding options available, are all warranted and part exchanges welcome.
