range Lotus Elise is renewed with the return of the last Sport. From the legendary Espirit this name had been abandoned, rescatándolo now with this update to the English model. We are actually looking at a relay versions of the Elise and Elise S, not meeting with relevant changes in the paragraph aesthetic. We are going to meet with more details that new developments bring these two alternatives, as it could not be of another way the members of this company, they have the weight as the reason.
As I told[the19459004] Lotus Elise Sport and Sport 220 do not receive a renewal aesthetics important. Outwardly not found hardly changes, while the main changes in the interior. If we can point to the new tires that reduce the total weight at about 5 kg. and that they can count with a silver finish or black according to the taste of the client. In the same way the behind has a black baffle and, optionally, with hard top. In the list of equipment that we may include you can also choose air conditioning, cruise control or an audio equipment Clarion.
In terms of the interior space to highlight the journal Club Racer, a few seats are 5 kg lighter than loss bacquets they rode until now. In addition to these seats are available for series, and can be customized with an upholstery tartan inspired by the Lotus Espirti S1, 1976, a model to which we have made mention in the previous lines.
in Addition to the above, one of the main novelties of the Lotus Elise Sport and Sport 220 is the arrival of the driving mode Sport, an option available that changes the personality of these models. Among their actions, this is how you change the blocking threshold of the limited-slip differential-mail, makes you more sensitive to the pedal and less intrusive the traction control.
A Lotus should pay close attention to the scale as much as possible and the new Elise have complied with its obligation. About 10 kg of weight is what you have achieved weight loss in both the Sport version as the Sport 220 with respect to the models that are bound to happen. The first of them declares only 866 kg of weight while the second conforms with 914 kg All to get better still more the dynamics of the vehicle.
The range of mechanical respects to the current Elise so we find ourselves with two four-cylinder engines of origin Toyota. The Lotus Elise Sport mounts a 1.6-litre engine that develops 136 horsepower and 160 Nm of torque while the Elise Sport 220 hides in its entrails the 1.8-liter engine sobrealimentad by compressor that offers 220-horsepower and 250 Nm of torque. The manual gearbox six-speed governs both engines, getting the first pass from 0-100 km/h in 6.5 seconds and in just 4.6 seconds the other alternative of which we speak.
