Lotus Elise Classic Heritage Editions

Lotus has released four new limited-edition versions of the Elise, each celebrating the racing liveries of some of the company's most iconic cars. The limited-edition cars are offered in black and gold; red, white and gold; blue, red and silver; and blue and white. The famous black and gold are inspired by the livery of the Lotus Type 72D which Emerson Fittipaldi raced to five victories over the course of the 1972 Formula 1 season. Red, white and gold were made famous by the Type 49B that Graham Hill raced in 1968, while the blue, red and silver for the Lotus Type 81 of 1980 driven by Nigel Mansell, Elio de Angelis and Mario Andretti. While the blue and white, is in tribute to the Lotus Type 18 design from 1960, the first Lotus car to achieve a Formula 1 pole position and victory, with Sir Stirling Moss behind the wheel at the Monaco Grand Prix.

Lotus Elise Classic Heritage Edition Interior

Officially called the Elise Classic Heritage Editions, all four offer an enhanced exterior and interior spec over the Elise Sport 220 on which they’re based. They are on sale now around the world, except in the USA. In addition to their livery inspired color schemes, each car comes with an exclusive numbered ‘build plaque’ on the dashboard referencing the limited production run. A total of just 100 cars will be made of all four combinations, the final number of each variant will depend on customer demand. 

Motorsport success has been at the heart of the Lotus philosophy for more than seven decades, and the Elise is our iconic roadster known around the world for its exceptional ‘For The Drivers’ performance. What better way to celebrate than by bringing these two pillars of our brand together, launching four new Classic Heritage cars which fans will instantly recognize?
