Yet another Lotus Elise variant

Yet another Lotus Elise variant

Lotus Elise Club Racer 2009 s

Lotus is as bad as Porsche and Bugatti when bringing out special editions. We definitely can’t keep track, and neither can anyone who isn’t a die-hard fanatic or total savant.

Making its debut at the I.A.A. in Frankfurt 2009, the Special Edition Lotus Elise Club Racer introduces new colour schemes, bespoke interior and lightweight components. Lotus makes a big thing of its environmental credentials and performance:

  • 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.

Lotus says in its press release, “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.”

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

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