Lotus Elise

I know, how can a car as pure as the fabulous Lotus Elise get any purer, well, leave it to the boffins from Hethel to figure out a way, oh, and the newest version will cost you less dough.

Reports say that Lotus will soon offer a version of the Elise in the U.S. believed to be called the Elise Purist Edition. Based on the Elise Sport package, the new model will throw in some goodies from the Touring package, but will not include the leather-covered transmission tunnel, leather door panels or iPod integrations from the Touring package. It will include leather seating, CD player, air conditioning, a Momo steering wheel and a start button. Normally, an Elise buyer would typically expect to lay out around $49,000 for such a well-equipped Elise, but the Purist Edition should start at just $43,995, which is $3,255 LESS than the base model Elise currently lists for at $47,250.

Because the new 2010 model has just been announced, and some very important figures have made very nice gains. The British automaker has carried out various tweaks to the Elise’s powertrain and aerodynamics helping the 2010MY Elise return a 9% reduction in CO2 emissions and similar increases in fuel economy. The Elise S shows significant improvement in fuel efficiency, raising it’s combined cycle MPG numbers from 28.3 mpg to 31mpg.
