    The lotus Elise could be powered by the motor in a Kenwood food blender and it would still be fast. So a supercharger has got to be oh so sweet. Not bad for a car styled by a 16 year old!!

    The Elise is perfect as it is.

    It's made to go with a light and not too powerful engine.

    Put a bigger and you'll have to:
    -reinforce the chassis
    -upgrade the suspensions
    -upgrade the brakes.

    Consequences ?
    -Elise concept ruined.
    -high fuel consumption

    the lotus elise or exige are both a hell of alot better if they are superchared and give a #$%#in huge improvement in performance - for more information see www.turbotechnics.com which provides information on turbotechnics itself which is a #$%#ing brilliant company and it provides performance charts. The lotus Elise when supercharged adds on about 100bhp and 0-60 is now 4.3 seconds

    Good Lord! 0-60 in 4.2 seconds! 0-100 in 11 seconds! The Elise in my opinion was the best car Lotus ever made (yes, I prefer it over the Esprit). But with a supercharger?! HA! That is sweet! I can't wait to see the specs on that next kit! 260 hp. About 1575-1580 lbs w/ supercharger and equipment. I need to go change my pants!<!-- Signature -->

    Puttin a supercharger will make it heavier and more expensive. I like the car in this state.<!-- Signature -->

    when the elise comes to america will the superchargers at turbotechnics.com work in it?
     
  11. Re: supercharged lotus' are #$%#in brill

    if you could squeez in a toyota Civic type R engine of i think relativly the same desplacement and weight you could get 212 hp thats a big advantage since the car is so light the present engine is inaffeciant and underpowered. what they need is toyota vtec engines with high rpm and power and tourqe.
     
  12. Re: supercharged lotus' are #$%#in brill

    How many kilos are you adding? 50, 100, 200?
    C'mon, the Elise chassis heve received great ratings from all the magazines i've read, and it's clearly underpowered. Please lotus, or god, drop a turbo on the Elise and hand me the keys, please, please....
