Elise S - Astonishing performance from such a lightweight car.


The supercharged Elise S, delivers 217 hp and 184 lbft (250 Nm) of torque – astonishing performance from such a lightweight car. The ultimate evolution of the Elise, its new 1.8 litre supercharged and charge cooled engine delivers instant acceleration with even more torque that’s accessible from low in the rev range. Select Sport mode and DPM characteristics alter for more engagement.


Leading Performance

Performance dynamics are matched aesthetically and aerodynamically. The impressive Elise S is distinguished by a rear wing that arches over the car’s hind quarters, creating more downforce than the standard rear clamshell.
