The Norfolk sportscar company says the Elise S Cup is "designed for driving enthusiasts looking for a road car that can be taken on track days with ease".
It is the most track-focused variant in the Elise range and sits above the Elise, Elise S and Club Racer variants in terms of price and levels of extremity.
Priced at around £43,500 including VAT (but excluding on-the-road costs), the standard Elise S Cup can be upgraded with a selection of road and track options.
Like the race car, the Elise S Cup uses a supercharged 1.8-litre engine with 217bhp at 6800rpm and 184lb ft at 4600rpm. According to the manufacturer's figures, it can sprint from a standstill to 60mph in 4.2sec and hit a maximum speed of 140mph. The car's unladen weight is put at 932kg.
The Elise S Cup has the same aerodynamics as the full racing version and delivers a significantly enhanced dynamic performance over the standard Elise S.
