Aside from a Union Jack-liveried Lotus Exige S Automatic seen in one of our earlier reports, Lotus Cars Malaysia has now introduced the limited edition Lotus Elise GREAT Britain for local consumption – yes, the ‘Great’ is listed in capitals. Priced from RM254,888, the Lotus Elise GREAT Britain is based on the Elise 20th Anniversary model and arrives equipped with a host of options “exclusive to the Malaysian market.”

The list includes Union Jack decals on the side intake and the inclusion of a ‘Sport Pack-Black Pack’ combo which brings along black forged wheels, Bilstein sport dampers plus a darkened rear diffuser on the outside. Inside, a “lightweight centre console” and sport seats trimmed in black fabric are featured as part of the aforementioned combination. Also part of the pack is a Sport mode for increased throttle response.

Elsewhere, the Lotus Elise GREAT Britain is equipped with a soft top and is available with a choice of three different paint schemes – Metallic Silver, Metallic White and Metallic Yellow. Furthermore, Lotus Cars Malaysia will throw in a complimentary ‘Touring Pack’ for the first three customers – said pack replaces the aforementioned black fabric seats with Ebony Black leather sport seats.

Those wanting to parade the Union Jack on the more hardcore Exige S Automatic, bad news. While the same livery is offered, its original price of RM432,919 for the Coupe and RM435,919 for the Roadster are maintained. The Lotus Exige S Automatic is powered by a supercharged 3.5 litre V6 engine with 345 hp and 400 Nm of torque. Mated to a six-speed auto, the car sprints from 0-100 km/h in 3.9 seconds (4.0 for the Roadster).

Potential owners and Lotus enthusiasts are advised to check out the Lotus Exige S Automatic Roadster as well as the Evora S Sport Racer and Elise 220 Cup at the Gardens Mall from August 5 to 9. Ongoing promotions include a three-year warranty, two years worth of free service, a slot at the Lotus Driving Academy, free road tax and insurance as well as membership to the Lotus owners’ club (LOCM).
