Still struggling to stay afloat after a disastrous 2013, Lotus may need a couple more years to come up with a completely redesigned sports car. Despite that, the Brits have had quite a busy 2015 so far, launching new variations of the Elise and Exige, as well as a significantly updated Evora. The 2015 Elise S Cup is the first of the trio to hit the market, having gone into production back in January. Essentially a road-legal version of the Cup R race car that Lotus launched in 2013, the Elise S Cup looked promising on paper, thanks to its 2,054-pound weight and 217-horsepower, supercharged engine. But how good is this British coupe on the track? That’s a question the folks over at EVO looked to answer in the video above.
