Just when we thought the Lotus Elise couldn't get more focused, along comes Lotus Sport and recalibrates the most undiluted performance car sold in the United States. Lotus Sport, Lotus' nine-person-strong specialty division responsible for performance parts as well as production and one-off racecars, gets credit for tuning the 50 2006 Lotus Sport Elise models in the U.S. market this year. Adding exclusivity to this already distinguished club, the Lotus Sport version of the Elise is identified by its proprietary Saffron Yellow paint, Storm Titanium racing stripes and matching hardtop. Inside, there's a numbered build plate, body-color center console and leather-trimmed seats with harness cutouts. Lotus Sport also redesigned the indicator stalks, window winders, floor mats and other details. But those aren't the parts that make it special. The real hardware components, the differences that make a difference, are hidden underneath. Threaded shock bodies with height-adjustable collars house Öhlins dampers at all four corners. The Öhlins units are two-way adjustable and utilize 22 compression and 60 rebound settings. The five-way-adjustable front stabilizer bar from the Track Pack option is also included. Lotus' advanced traction control is in place, but interestingly, the Torsen limited-slip differential, which is optional on all Elises, isn't included. Lotus engineers and PR folks alike admit that the limited-slip diminishes the car's world-class steering feel and was made available for the small but vocal group of owners whose autocrossing demands required it in low-speed, high-load corners. For road racing, it's not necessary. Other hardware changes include stainless-steel brake lines and high-temperature fluid. There's also a stronger clutch that's able to handle more abuse. The same Yokohama A048 195/50R16 (front) and 225/45R17 (rear) tires and lightweight forged wheels from the Sport Pack are included. Familiar power, new handling The same Toyota-sourced 1.8-liter four-cylinder powers the Lotus Sport Elise through a six-speed manual transmission. Rated at 190 horsepower and 138 pound-feet of torque, it provides ample motivation in a car whose weight is almost exactly one ton. Row through the gears in a straight line and you'll have a hard time distinguishing the Lotus Sport Elise from a standard car, but drive it back-to-back at 10/10ths, and the limits are clearly redefined. Our track time showed the Lotus Sport Elise more stable over midcorner surface undulations in high-speed turns. Steering response is ever-so-slightly sharpened and confidence is similarly increased. The result is a tighter chassis, fewer distractions and a more direct connection to the Sport Elise driver's nerve centers. And that's something we simply didn't think was possible. Then it got even better.
