The only dealership of experts in Australia dedicated to providing you with an even better Lotus experience.
Ownership, servicing and performance modifications through SSC LOTUS is a very different dealer experience. Unlike any other dealer in Australia, you deal with specialists who have been turning customers road cars into supercars by designing and manufacturing our own performance parts under the Simply Sports Cars brand. That sort of race-proven experience of all things Lotus is precisely why Lotus Australia were proud to make us the Lotus custodians for NSW.
THE MOST POWERFUL PRODUCTION LOTUS EVER
This flagship supercar delivers a pure and focused experience, combining high performance with legendary Lotus benchmark handling. The Evora 400 is 42 kg lighter than the previous model and has a completely new aluminium chassis with a more refined cabin exit and entry design, enhancing everyday usability. The supercharged mid-mounted 3.5-litre V6 engine now puts out 400 hp and 410Nm of torque to sprint to 0-100km/h in just 4.1 seconds.
so many roads,
so little time
How many compact sportscars can blast from 0-100kph in just 6.5 seconds? Weighing just 866kgs, the super-light Elise Sport can. It is the timelessly stylish, lightweight composite body, attached to an equally light aluminium alloy chassis-tub that forms the basis for several other Lotus models. That’s what does it. Yet, it is strong, which allows its suspension to work impressively, resisting body roll but remaining taut enough for ultimate sportscar thrills, while retaining damping compliance that affords the Elise Sport an astonishingly good ride quality. It is Lotus' years of experience and irrepressible talent that allow a car like Elise Sport to be created.
Elise SPORT 220
Responding to a demand for more power and torque, Lotus took its super-lightweight Elise Sport, added 200cc to the engine, along with an Eaton supercharger to turn ‘bristling’ into ‘blistering’ performance. Of course, a vibrant performance envelope is helped immeasurably by the weight conscious nature of the Elise. The Elise Sport 220 is the result. Despite a dramatic power increase, the overall kerbweight of the Elise Sport 220 increases by only 48kgs over the stock Elise Sport. As a result, its power to weight ratio is a significant 237bhp/tonne. The result is soul-stirring performance to keep you ahead of the crowd. Driving purity in reality.
Elise CUP 250
Proving that less is more, Lotus’ high performance Cup version of the famous Elise has shed 21 kg and gained 26 hp. Weighing in at 931 kg, and capable of 0-100 kph in 4.3 seconds, the Elise Cup 250 is the fastest road-going Lotus Elise ever. The aerodynamically optimised body kit provides 66 kg of downforce at 160 kph and an impressive 155 kg at maximum velocity of 248 kph. Shaping and working airflow over and around the bodywork has been key to delivering the car’s extremely focused handling. The optional Carbon Aero Pack replaces the standard front splitter, rear wing, rear diffuser and side floor-extensions with lightweight carbon components.
Exige SPORT 350.
Ultra lightweight raw performance, agility, unparalleled ride and handling. These are attributes that people have come to expect from Lotus and the Exige Sport 350 is no exception. Now also available as a roadster, with manual transmission or paddle-shift automatic - the lightest possible incarnation of the current generation Exige. The Exige Sport 350 blends the extreme and the sublime, it's a balance between beauty and the beast, and with its 345 hp supercharged V6 engine it isn't for the faint-hearted. Mid mounted, transverse 3.5 litre DOHC V6 VVT-i engine, 4 valves per cylinder, with Harrop HTV 1320 Supercharger utilising Eaton TVS Technology. 0-60 mph 3.7 seconds, 0-100 km/h 3.9 seconds, max speed 170mph (274 km/h)
