Lotus Elise Club Racer

Lotus Elise Club Racer
Lotus brengt de Lotus Elise Club Racer mee naar het autosalon van Frankfurt, een speciale editie van de Lotus Elise die beschikbaar wordt met klassieke kleuren.

Lotus heeft vier klassieke kleurschema’s uit de jaren zestig beschikbaar gemaakt voor deze speciale editie van de Lotus Elise, het gaat om Elite Yellow, Carbon Grey, Sky Blue en Old English White. Binnenin geniet je van sportieve stoelen die gemaakt werden uit lichtgewicht microvezels en de buitenkleur wordt verwerkt in het interieur op de transmissietunnel en als accent bij de kuipstoelen. Het interieur van de Club Racer wordt verder opgefleurd met afwerkingsdetails in antraciet, het Club Racer (CR) logo en een lederen stuurwiel met een markeerpunt voor het midden van het stuur.

De Lotus Elise Club Racer staat op lichtgewicht lichtmetalen velgen en Yokohama AD07 LTS banden. Onder de motorkap vinden we de 134 pk sterke motor uit de Elise S, gezien zijn lage gewicht van 860 kg is dat voldoende om van 0 naar 100 km/u te sprinten in 6,1 seconden. Het verbruik komt op 7,6 liter/100 km en de CO2-uitstoot bedraagt 179 gram per kilometer.

De Lotus Elise Club Racer is vanaf 15 september te koop en zal in België 34.475 euro kosten inclusief transport en BTW. Een Nederlandse prijs kregen we niet mee maar de prijs zonder belastingen bedraagt 27.822 euro.

Lotus Elise Club Racer – the perfect combination of performance, efficiency and style

Making its debut at the I.A.A. in Frankfurt 2009, the Special Edition Lotus Elise Club Racer introduces new and exclusive colour schemes, bespoke interior and lightweight components all in a world class, high performance and low emission sportscar.

  • 179 g/km CO2
  • 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds
  • 0-100 km/h in 6.1 seconds
  • Combined cycle fuel consumption: 37.2 mpg or 7.6l/100km

Lotus has taken four of the classic colour schemes used by Lotus in the 1960s (Elite Yellow, Carbon Grey, Sky Blue and Old English White) and combined them with exclusive Club Racer interior design features to give a stunning sportscar that beautifully morphs function and form.

The firm and supportive Elise seats are clad with lightweight microfibre comfort pads perfectly positioned to give the right amount of support with the minimal amount of weight, but still keeping the body coloured seat shell partly exposed.

The exterior body colour theme is carried over to the transmission tunnel and combined with silver and black paint highlights, bisecting the cockpit and tying together the whole sporty theme unique to the Club Racer.

Other exclusive interior design features of the Club Racer are the anthracite anodised gear knob and handbrake sleeve, the Club Racer (CR) logo hand embroidered on the seat headrest and the unique anodized aluminium flooring in the driver’s and passenger’s footwell. The small 320 mm diameter leather rimmed steering wheel has an on-center marker, enabling the more spirited driver to quickly and safely identify the straight ahead position of the front wheels.

The lightweight six spoke alloy wheels, shod in bespoke Yokohama AD07 LTS tyres are also anthracite anodised, complementing the key interior components.

Luke Bennett, Director of Lotus Cars said, “Special Editions of the award winning Elise have always proved popular with our customers around the world, and I expect the Elise Club Racer to be no different. We have taken colour schemes from our past, used on the Elite and Elan in the 1960s and cleverly brought them up to date with a modern feel to the interior. The whole design package is modern with a classic twist, which of course matches the peerless ride and handling of a Lotus and the convertible experience of the Elise perfectly.”

The Lotus Elise Club Racer is based upon the 134 hp Elise S and goes on sale on 15th September 2009 priced as set out below.
