"The original Elise was so lightweight that the run-of-the-mill Rover engine, barely wheezing out 118 horsepower, was more than enough to allow the Lotus to embarrass much more powerful sportscars. Corners? Forget about it, the Elise makes go-karts look like land barges. So when Lotus snagged the (very British-sounding) Very High Performance Derivative version of the K-series engine from the Rover parts bin to create the limited production Sport, the resulting 190 horsepower output in the bantamweight chassis had the effect of turning the insanity up to 11. When you told a Lotus dealer that you wanted a Sport (or presented a regular-spec car for conversion), it set Lotus’ highly-skilled race technicians a-flutter, hand-modifying the Elise with competition-ready componentry like a roll bar, thin-shell race seats, and of course suspension and brake upgrades. The result is breathtaking; it’s a very small car that can do very big things, like dash to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds. While that’s impressive, just like the Sport’s less burly Elise siblings, its forte is lateral acceleration. That means the twisties are its natural habitat, and you’ll quickly understand why Lotus’ commitment to “adding lightness” has given them the reputation for making some of the best-handling cars around."
—Official description[1]

The 1999 Lotus Elise Series 1 Sport 190 - abbreviated as Lotus Elise '99 and also known as Lotus Elise Sport[2] - is a RWD sports car by Lotus featured in Forza Motorsport 4 and all subsequent Motorsport main titles, although it was only available as part of the Top Gear Car Pack in Forza Motorsport 5.

Synopsis

The Lotus Elise was introduced in 1996 as the successor to the M100 Lotus Elan. Unlike its front-engine, front-wheel drive predecessor, the Elise was built on a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive platform that weighs only 1477 lb (670 kg) in total.

The Series 1 (S1), the first model generation of the Elise, was produced from 1996 to 2001. The Sport 190 was introduced in 1997 as the most powerful S1 model with 190 hp (142 kW). In 2000, a hardtop variant of the S1 became available that launched the Lotus Exige.

The Series 1 was replaced by the Series 2 model generation in 2001.[3]
