To make this hardcore sports car, Lotus used the already potent Elise Cup 220 and went to town. The automaker stripped off 46 lbs of weight and added 26 hp to the Elise’s supercharged four-cylinder engine. Needless to say, this has made the Cup 250 into an animal. Thanks to the weight reduction and added power, the sports car can get to 60 mph in just 3.9 seconds and can lap Lotus’ Hethel Test Track in 1 minute and 34 seconds. This makes the Cup 250 the fastest road-legal
Elise ever made. Enthusiasts looking for an even lighter Cup 250 can opt for a Carbon Aero Package that cuts weight by an additional 22 lbs. While the Cup 250 may be road legal, it’s still engineered to decimate the track.
