The Lotus Evora will hog the limelight at the brand's Frankfurt motor show this month, but a new Elise special edition will also be vying for attention.

Bespoke looks
The Elise Club Racer has a number of visual upgrades over the Elise S model it's based on. These include:

β€’ Four bespoke paintwork options: elite yellow, carbon grey, sky blue and old English white
β€’ Body-coloured interior trim with silver and black highlights
β€’ 'Anodised' gearknob and handbrake sleeve
β€’ CR logo on the seat headrest and anodised aluminium flooring
β€’ Small-diameter steering wheel with on-centre marker
β€’ Lightweight six-spoke alloy wheels

Spec and prices
The Elise Club Racer uses the same 1.8-litre engine as the Elise S, but has a 0-60mph time of 5.7 seconds, 0.1 seconds quicker than the S.

Average fuel economy and CO2 emissions are unchanged, at 37.2mpg and 179g/km.

The Elise Club Racer goes on sale on September 15, at 25,712.
