Owners of Lotus Elise sports cars can upgrade their vehicle with lots of different products. Over the years the Simply Sports Cars engineering team has developed a range of upgrades, modifications and performance enhancements for the Lotus Elise using our experience from racing at the track or targa. We are also able to source some of the best items from different brands around the world & help you get them fitted to your vehicle at our workshop in Sydney or Melbourne.


Here is our guide to the top five upgrades for a Lotus Elise for either daily driving or track day use.


A combination of these can then also make the Elise the ideal sports car for track days or tarmac rally events.
