Lotus Exige and Lotus Elise Carbon Fiber
Lotus is one of the most recognizable names in British vehicles, featuring a number of exceptional designs in high performance automobiles. Lotus has distinctive quality, shape and style that are universally recognized.
Two of the more popular Lotus designs are the Exige & Elise which have made a powerful impact on the automotive scene. However, the overall similarities between these vehicles makes it a little difficult to tell them apart, save for the experts. To begin with, what are the Exige & Elise and the differences that make them distinctive?
The Exige is a two-door, two seat sports vehicle that has been in production since 2000. It is on the surface a coupe version of the older Elise model, although both are still in production today.
The Elise has a longer history than the Exige, being developed and released in 1996. This two seat, rear wheel drive roadster features the engine near the center of the vehicle. The hand finished fiberglass shell is bonded to an aluminum chassis which keeps the weight to a minimum.
The Differences between the Lotus Exige & Elise Models
Although very similar in design, the Elise is considered to be less powerful, slightly heavier and somewhat less expensive than the faster, more extreme Exige version. In addition, the Exige version features a fixed roof, rear spoiler and additional aero attachments for a sportier look.
The Impact of Carbon Fiber Auto Parts on the Lotus Exige & Elise
One of the most influential design aspects on Lotus vehicles as well as all automotive designs over the past decade has been the influence of advanced carbon fiber technology. Carbon fiber is essentially strands of carbon that are bonded together using the new twill weave design. This creates exceptional strength, durability and impact resistance to the original and aftermarket parts for vehicles.
Carbon fiber auto parts are generally more than twice as strong as their steel counterparts, yet they weigh less than 1/4th the amount. In addition, carbon fiber is more impact resistant as well, making it the perfect replacement or aftermarket parts for all types of vehicles and in particular high performance autos such as the Lotus Exige & Elise.
Scopione carbon fiber parts are available for both Lotus models as well as a host of other makes and models of vehicles. The following list includes, but is not limited to, carbon fiber parts that are available for the Lotus Exige & Elise.
