2008 Lotus Elise California Edition Convertible 2008 Lotus Elise SC Convertible 2008 Lotus Elise California Edition Convertible 2008 Lotus Elise California Edition Interior A trio of progressive shift lights come on in sequence as you approach the 8,000 rpm redline; 8,500 rpm is allowed for 1.5-second bursts. Extra torque lower in the rpm range means you won't have to row the six-speed gearbox quite so constantly. 2008 Lotus Elise SC 1.8L I4 S/C Engine 2008 Lotus Elise California Edition Wheel Detail 2008 Lotus Elise California Edition Rear Badging Also part of the Touring Pack is an Alpine stereo with an integrated iPod connection that allows you to bring tunes along with you; you'll need it, as there isn't any place to stow a CD collection in here. Touring version of the Elise now features carpet and a cupholder; the Elise is less spartan than it was, but it's still no limo. Part of what you get with the Sport Pack is a pair of lightweight ProBax seats already configured for a track-style seatbelt harness. The cast-aluminum wheels are unique to the SC and the rear rims are 0.5 inch wider than those of the standard Elise. Like the Exige S, the Elise SC has a single ovoid exhaust poking out from the rear diffuser. From here, it's hard to tell a 2008 Lotus Elise SC from a standard Elise. Even the badging reflects the weight-conscious philosophy at Lotus. The Elise's driving position remains as exquisitely thrilling as ever. Oh yeah. The Touring Pack includes a retractable cupholder ? a lightweight aluminum extrusion trimmed with leather, no less. Here's a Lotus that you don't have to drive on the track to enjoy. Brilliant steering, instant responses and plenty of power should have made the Lotus a mountain-road contender. Normally a leader when it comes to outright grip, the Lotus ties the GT-R in this test. Lotus Elise. Lotus Elise. There's no intercooler, so the view out the back window is unobstructed.
