Lotus offering superchargers for Elise and Exige

Lotus offering superchargers for Elise and Exige

So far, Lotus cars have officially only gone on sale in Saudi Arabia, while customers in the UAE and the rest of the GCC have to stare in jealousy. Lotus also sells cars in the United States, where they are now offering new a factory-engineered and warranted supercharger kit for naturally-aspirated Elise and Exige models.

The Lotus Supercharger Kit uses the same supercharger and integrated intake manifold unit as fitted to the Elise SC model and can be installed on any naturally-aspirated Elise or Exige powered by a Toyota 2ZZ-GE engine. The compact supercharger and integrated intake manifold, along with new high-flow fuel injectors and a re-programmed engine management control unit, increases horsepower from 189 hp up to approximately 218 hp and torque jumps from 180 Nm up to approximately 210 Nm. The increased maximum torque is available at a lower 5,000 rpm instead of the naturally-aspirated 6,800 rpm.

The Lotus Supercharger Kit is available for purchase and installation at all authorized Lotus dealers in the U.S. and Canada. It is unknown if the kit is being offered to Saudi customers.
