Elise reloads

Lotus revives the Sport nameplate

CALLING ANY Lotus product a 'Sport' might seem like stating the obvious, but that's exactly what you get with the MY16 Elise range. Both Sport and Sport 220 models drop 10kg to weigh in at 866kg and 914kg respectively, while engine ouputs carry over, the standard car producing 100kW/160Nm from its 1.6- litre four, while the 220 develops a healthy 162kW/250Nm from its 1.8-litre supercharged four. Australia pricing will be announced closer to its mid-2016 local arrival. ting 6 gh y 6- e
