British automaker Lotus has announced an electronic instrument cluster for the Elise and Exige models. The novelty is intended to replace the factory counterpart.

The new dashboard, which is a high-contrast 6-inch TFT display, can be equipped with the Elise Roadster and Exige Coupé, produced since 2012. The dashboard is primarily aimed at those who love track days: the device has built-in GPS navigation and information about 4127 world race tracks. In addition, the dashboard has acquired a special connector for connecting an action camera.

The system is automatically able to detect that the car has hit the race track and switch to the lap measurement mode. The results of the track day can then be analyzed by displaying them on the display in a sports car or uploading them later to an external device, which can be a computer.

The price of an electronic dashboard instead of factory for any 2012 Elise or Exige model is £ 1,470 in the UK market. It is worth noting that the device is covered by a 2-year warranty.

In addition, the Petersen Automobile Museum previously circulated a video tour of the British Lotus Evija hypercar. Russell Carr, who is the head of the Lotus Evija design department, spoke about this car.
