Hexagon Lotus London are delighted to offer this wonderful one owner-from-new, Type 33 Edition Lotus Elise Sport 220, which presents beautifully in a classic Lotus colour combination that provides a firm nod to the iconic Lotus Type 33 Formula One racing car. A car which was driven by the likes of Jim Clark and Sir Jackie Stewart. This is 1 of just 2 Type 33 Elise production cars authorised by Classic Team Lotus.
Lotus Cars are one of Britain’s most iconic automotive manufacturers and the Elise is one of the most important models ever produced by the brand. Retaining the elements that have always kept the Elise ahead of rivals, the Elise Sport is built around an extruded and bonded aluminium chassis which is both tremendously strong and torsionally stiff – weighing just 68 kg. The new Elise Sport benefits from a range of improvements, which includes a 10 kg mass reduction thanks to several new components.
The 220 Sport is fitted with a 1.8 litre supercharged engine which has been tuned to produce 217bhp and 250Nm of torque. This power output combined with extremely light chassis and body of the Elise enables the car to have a benchmark power-to-weight ratio with class leading efficiency. 0-60mph is taken care of in just 4.2 seconds. Exceptional braking performance is provided thanks to AP Racing twin piston front calipers and Brembo single piston rear calipers. The exposed aluminium gearshift system is a visual feast, and its close sports ratios make spirited driving an absolute pleasure. In 2017 Evo Magazine gave the Elise 220 Sport a five-star rating. This gives great kudos to what is, in essence, a low volume sports car.
The Elise 220 Type 33 looks fantastic in its traditional racing green colour, with yellow striped decals and Colin Chapman signatures, and the classic red and black leather interior. It has a full Lotus Official Dealer service history with 3 stamps, complete driver’s book pack and spare remote key. This is a unique opportunity to acquire a special edition version of the iconic Elise 220, that combines the very best of British engineering in a package that is immense fun to drive and also incredibly usable daily.
