The Lotus Elise, the firm's best-selling model, and the hardcore, hardtop Exige have been given a new line-up of standard and optional equipment.
On sale now, the '06 Elise and Exige boast faster-acting LED taillights, central locking and a retuned brake pedal and electronic throttle operated by a new steel pedal box. The loss of Elise chief chassis engineer Richard Rackham's elegant extruded aluminium pedal box has been in the name of weight-saving, along with the LED lights, which save 0.6kg.
The exterior styling is unchanged, but there are now 21 paint colours to choose from, with metallic paint a £595 option and new 'lifestyle' finishes for £1010. Inside there is an easier-to-read tachometer and new Probax seats, which save weight and offer an improved posture.
Both the £27,995 Elise and £29,995 Exige are powered by a mid-mounted 189bhp Toyota engine, and each can now be specified with one of four option packs.
The £1495 Touring pack includes leather trim, a CD player, carpet set and electric windows, while for an extra £500 the Super Touring pack adds driver and passenger airbags - an Elise first - a starter button and extra trim and storage areas.
