In February 2010, Lotus unveiled a facelifted version of the second-generation Elise. The new headlights are now single units; triangular in shape they are somewhat larger than the earlier lights. The cheapest version in Europe had a 1.6-litre engine to comply with Euro 5 emissions, with the same power output as the earlier 1.8 136 PS (100 kW; 134 hp). The 1.8 litre Elise comes standard with a Magnuson R900 supercharger making 220 PS (162 kW; 217 hp). The 1.6-litre version was discontinued in 2018.
Lotus revealed a high-performance version of the Elise called the Cup series. The Cup series is a more track-focused and hardcore version of the standard Elise.
