Lotus Elise S Cup R

Evolving from the 1.6 litre Elise platform, this is the first time the supercharged Elise S’ mid-mounted, transverse, 1.8 litre 2ZR-FE engine has been used in a Cup variant. Performance is enhanced over the road-going Elise S thanks to a motorsport-specific engine control module (ECM) and a CFD proved aero pack comprising; front splitter, barge boards, winglets, rear diffuser, floor extensions and rear wing. Despite the extra body kit and race-ready additions, Lotus Motorsport manages to maintain the road car’s light weight of just 924 kg.

The Lotus Elise S Cup R is eligible for entry to the production class in the 2014 Lotus Cup series.


Lotus Exige V6 Cup R

The car allows drivers to race in all Lotus Cup race series including Lotus Cup UK and Europe with a single specification for all drivers, and the car has proved itself in this category with numerous race wins.


Lotus Type 125

Lotus T125

The ultimate race car ownership experience, the Lotus Type 125 is the closest thing to purchasing your very own Formula One car.

Inspired by the very pinnacle of race machinery anywhere in the world and with club membership limited to a mere 25, the Lotus Type 125 and Exos club is all about exclusivity and ultimate enjoyment. The car is designed to give a breathless and authentic Formula One experience while being forgiving, safe, reliable and possible for a mere mortal to drive.

The Type 125’s 640bhp 3.5 litre Cosworth V8 engine – much like the one used in IndyCar – is linked to a six-speed gearbox with paddle shift. The car’s featherweight 560kg results in a phenomenal power-to-weight of nearly 1000bhp per tonne.
