Bell & Colvill Lotus have announced the Elise Black Edition and Elise White Edition available for order immediately.
The world’s longest established retailer of Lotus cars will offer the Black and White Edition packages on Elise R and Elise SC variants.
Black Edition cars feature a Lotus Sport black base color with Phantom Black tri-stripes while the White Edition benefits from Ice White tri-stripes over an Aspen White base color. Brake calipers are then painted either red or silver.
On the inside, both cars receive an upgraded interior including a microfiber trimmed dash and contrasting material on the sport seats and door inserts.
Standard equipment includes the hardtop, black forged wheels with AD07 tires, and a black diffuser. Options include traction control at £294, air conditioning at £979, and a compulsory option at £979 for the Lotus Sport base paint.
Priced at £1,950, the Black and White Editions package more than £5,000 worth of equipment if specified individually outside the package.
Not mentioned in the release from Bell & Colvill is the apparent inspiration from the limited-edition Porsche Design Edition 1 and Porsche Design Edition 2. Those tri-stripes looked great on the Porsches and should look equally as nice on the Elise.
