A new collection of limited edition Lotus Elises has been unveiled and it’s called the Elise Classic Heritage Editions. In total, there are four different exterior and interiors specs for the Elise Sport 220s in the collection. First, there’s the black and gold livery, which references the livery of the Lotus Type 72D that Emerson Fittipaldi raced to five victories back during the 1972 Formula 1 season. Then there’s the red, white and gold livery that pays tribute to the Type 49B that Graham Hill raced in 1968. The blue, red and silver livery was inspired by the Lotus Type 81 driven by Nigel Mansell, Elio de Angelis and Mario Andretti in 1980. Last, but not least, there’s the blue and white livery that’s an homage to the Lotus Type 18 design from 1960. That car was actually the first Lotus car to get a Formula 1 pole position and victory, thanks to the late Sir Stirling Moss at the Monaco Grand Prix.
