Lotus Elise -- bringing back the fun factor to driving

Hard Top for the Lotus Elise

A new one piece detachable hard top for the Elise is now available. The very strong but lightweight composite hard top, developed with extensive wind tunnel testing, has been styled to complement the elegant design of the car. It gives better insulation and all-weather-protection than a traditional cloth hood as well as providing more security and convenience.

The roll hoop cover on the Elise is replaced by the clip-on hard top to enable simple attachment and removal. A specially designed wall mounted frame and cover is available to store the hard top when not in use.

Current Elise owners will be able to have their hard top retro-fitted by a dealer to their cars. The price for the complete hard top kit is £1,250. For retro-fit, this price includes an up-date to the current soft-top to make it completely interchangeable with the hard top.

The hardtop is available in all standard colours with the interior lined in black Alcantara.
