After the success of the Exige V6 Cup and its hardcore sibling the Exige V6 Cup R, the Lotus decided to develop an R model for the Elise S packed full of Lotus Motorsport magic to present the track-only Lotus Elise S Cup R. Both the 1.6 litre and 1.8 litre Elise platforms will boast bespoke livery and aerodynamic body kit.Lotus-Elise_S_Cup_R_2014_02

Performance is juiced up compared to the road going Elise S with a motorsport-specific engine control module (ECM) and a CFD proved aero pack comprising; front splitter, barge boards, winglets, rear diffuser, floor extensions and rear wing. Weight was important and despite the extra body kit they managed to maintain the road car’s light weight of 924 kg.Lotus-Elise_S_Cup_R_2014_04

And things for my loved ones just got worse as the cars where now being bought at 1:1 scale, after a BMW, HSV, and couple of Audi's, the disease reached my brain, pushing me over the edge and down the rabbits hole into the world of the bedroom poster.
