Very few racing cars are as famous or as celebrated as the Lotus Type 49 Formula One car. Its racing pedigree was instantly proven, winning its debut Grand Prix in the hands of Jim Clark. This was not the only reason for its fame; it was the car developed alongside the V8 Cosworth Ford DFV engine that dominated Formula One for a full decade. The Type 49 was also the first Formula One car to use the engine as an integral stressed part of the chassis.

The Elise Type 49, as part of the Elise Heritage range, not only shares the distinctive red, white and gold livery of the Type 49 Formula One car, but also many of the strengths that made the Type 49 Formula One car so successful; Lightweight aluminium chassis, GRP body, Lotus world beating ride and handling and of course the principles of performance through lightweight.

The racing heritage look is continued with gold coloured six spoke wheels. The interior stays true to its racing theme with perforated red leather seats and steering wheel centre, black Alcantara door panels, and the distinctive red Heritage laurels embroidered onto the headrest of each seat. Making the Elise Type 49 even more unique is a Heritage Type 49 ID plate confirming its limited edition status. Only 100 of these cars were produced for the UK market. The car was also supplied with both Hard Top and Soft Top as standard.
