Motorsport is the root of everything Lotus. From the very first racing prototypes designed and built in the 40's by Colin Chapman, through to the development of the very best roadster on the market today, the Lotus Elise, LOTUS SPORT has been created to develop the motorsport link even further with a simple brief.
Design & develop motorsport options for use with all Lotus products that perpetuate the Colin Chapman legacy.
The first results of this brief are now ready. LOTUS SPORT have created and developed a full range of motorsport-ready options for the Lotus Elise. Every part has been designed to significantly enhance both performance and style when used in motorsport activity.
