This description is taken from the NTSC version of Gran Turismo 2:
There have been three competition versions of the Lotus Elise. All have modifications for lighter weight, increased safety - full roll cages are specified - and even better handling than the stock Elise. The first was the Elise GT1. A carbon-fiber body covered a version of the Elise bonded-aluminium backbone chassis modified to take a 3.5 liter twin-turbo Lotus Esprit V8 Engine. In street tune, it had the same 350 BHP as the Esprit; in race tune "over 550 hp" was available in a car weighing under 2.000 lbs. The suspension was to full competition specification, and 14-inch disc brakes with 6-piston calipers provided immense stopping power. The Sport Elise 190, offered from 1997, was intended for circuit use only, with increased power: 190 BHP at 7.000 rpm, with 140 lb/ft of torque at 5.650 from the Elise four-cylinder engine and a suspension calibrated for track use. With weight under 1.500 lbs, the track-ready car could do 0-62 mph in a supercar-like 4.4 seconds. The Motorsport Elise of 1999 takes the concept of the Sport Elise 190 a step further. Designed for a one-make racing series run by the factory at various European venues, the Motorsport Elise features redesigned bodywork with an aerodynamic hardtop, competition suspension, and a race-spec 200 BHP version of the Elise four-cylinder engine. Like the Sport 190, is meant for competition use only, with no street version available.
