2011 Lotus Elise SC and Exige S RGB (Roger Becker) Special EditionsFormer director of engineering Roger Becker, who retired this January, is Lotus’ inspiration behind the release of its two new special editions of its Elise and Exige models this September.

Sports and Touring packs are fitted on these two models as standard. Buyers can choose from four
available colors: Aspen White, Starlight Black, Solar Yellow & Carbon Grey. Each vehicle will be recognized by a numbered interior plaque. Roger Becker’s signature can be viewed from the side of the vehicles’ body and on the Lotus nose badge. The Elise SC RGB is powered by a supercharged 1.8l engine, which delivers 217 hp and enables the car to accelerate from zero to 60mph in 4.3 seconds.

Powering the Exige S RGB is a supercharged/intercooled engine Exige S RGB of the same displacement, producing 257 hp and pushing the vehicle to run from zero to 60 mph in 4 seconds.

In a statement, Becker said that he is “honored” for Lotus naming its two special editions after him, “especially as it allows [him] to offer the customer [his] favorite specifications.” He talked about the past 44 years as having been “an incredible journey.”

He said, “I’m looking forward to watching Lotus progress in the future, I have no doubt that the company will continue to go from strength to strength.” With the release of these two models, Lotus will retire the 1.8l engine supplied by Toyota because of emission regulations limits. What this indicates is that the Elise R, Elise SC, Exige S and Exige Cup 260 will no longer be available in Europe.
