The Lotus Elise '96 is a Road car produced by Lotus. It first appears in Gran Turismo 2, returning in Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, Gran Turismo 5, and Gran Turismo 6 after a long absence. It is one of the few cars which can be Race Modified in GT2 and GT5.

In-game descriptionEdit

This description is taken from the description page in GT5. It is transcluded from here.



The Lotus Elise, introduced at the 1995 Frankfurt Motor Show, embraced founder Colin Chapman's ideals of "add more lightness". The car was as pure as any sports car in history, equipped with only ingredients that made the car quick and agile.

Revolutionary new technology was introduced into the Elise, the main one being the bonds that held the all-aluminum chassis together. Instead of screws and welds, the Elise used what was essentially glue to keep its foundation together (some rivets were sparingly used as a backup measure).

What's more, the Elise was the first production car with its engine bay, rear hub carrier and even its brake rotors composed entirely of aluminum. This helped the compact mid-engine road car to achieve an astonishingly low curb weight of 690 kg (the weight increased slightly on later models).

The transversely-mounted engine came in the form of Rover's 1.8-liter inline-4, mated to a 5-speed gearbox, both units lifted from the MGF. Although maximum output was rated at a modest 116 HP, the Elise's ultra lightweight body enabled it to accelerate like a true sport car. The car ran to 60 mph in less than 6.0 seconds.

The Elise also carried on the Lotus tradition of names staring with "E". It was actually the name of the granddaughter of Romano Artioli, the president of Bugatti, who owned Lotus at the time.
