Lotus Marks The End Of An Era With Its Elise & Exige Final Edition Cars

Feb 9, 2021

The day of reckoning has finally arrived for the Elise and Exige, as Lotus has announced the final editions of its long-running sports car models. Luckily for fans of the mini midengined track-monsters, Lotus has saved its best Elises and Exiges for last.

There are a total of five “Final Edition” iterations of the Elise and Exige, and all of them are available with unique trims, special color options, all-new digital dashboards, and performance upgrades. The range’s entry-level model is the Elise Sport 240, which adds 23 horsepower over the Elise Sport 220 it replaces. It’s joined in the Elise line by the Cup 250, while the Exige — the Elise’s stripped-down, racing-minded cousin — is saying goodbye with the Sport 390, Sport 420, and Cup 430. The latter is the most-powerful Exige ever, with 430hp and a lightweight, carbon fiber-filled body. All five cars will bear Final Edition badges and are being produced in limited quantities. The Evora is also set to end production later this year, with the end of Lotus’ current model range making way for its 2,000 horsepower EV hypercar, the Evija. Pricing for the Elise and Exige Final Editions ranges from around $55,000 for the Elise Sport 240, to over $120,000 for the Exige Cup 430.
