Lotus To Release Special Edition Clark Type 25 Elise SC

Written by tonks on June 6, 2008

Lotus Clark Type 25 Elise SCLotus will be launching their first special edition supercharged Elise also known as the Clark Type 25 Elise SC. The new special edition car was created to honor Jim Clark – an F1 racer that has become legend since he died four decades ago at the Hockenheim circuit.

The Clark Type 25 F1 car was designed in a British Racing Green and a combination of yellow. It was designed after the F1 racing car that he used to win the 1963 World Championship.

Aside from the standard hardtop, black and silver Lotus racing wheels, black leather seats, red trim and wooden shift knob, this is the same Elise SC available abroad. No mechanical changes have been made, so it’s still putting out 218 hp and 156 lb.-ft. of torque from its supercharged 1.8-liter mounted amidships. In tribute to Clark’s racing number, Lotus is limiting production of the special edition Elise SC to 25 units and will only make the £35,995 coupe available in the UK and Ireland.
