New Elise 220 Cup Owner

Mrs LF1

Recommended Posts



Just driven home from collecting my new Ardent Red Elise 220 Cup from Aims at Silverstone.


Whilst this is my first post, most of you will know my Lotus history from my hubby TJ3N, but now we have one each! (He thinks he's going to get a go in mine - I've only let him 'check it was ok' so far). For those that don't know we had an Elise CR that we replaced last year with the LF1, but I missed the Elise so sold my Boxster S to buy the Cup.


So the spec:

Ardent red

Wing mirrors and stems in matt black

Red contrast stitching interior

Air con

Air bag delete

A frame with harnesses

Plumbed fire extinguisher and isolation switches

FIA carbon race seats

Cup R forged wheels and yokohoma tyres

Front and rear towing eye

Performance air filter


The car looks fantastic, Lotus and Silverstone did a brilliant job prepping it, once again Aimee and the team at Silverstone went above and beyond getting us my perfect bespoke spec.


Now to get it run in ready to get on track. We'll be at the festival on Saturday, the car will be on the Elise 20 year display.

Very very nice, I love Ardent Red Loti....  Nice one.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.
