Yokohama OE on Lotus Elise and Exige Ranges

(Clacton, U.K./Tyres & Accessories) Yokohama has been selected to supply OE tyres to the Lotus’ 2006 Elise and Exige ranges.

The Lotus Elise 111R and Lotus Elise Sports Racer are both fitted with the Yokohama Advan Neova AD07 tyre, which has been developed specifically for the demands of Lotus models. Furthermore, the entire Exige range is fitted with the company’s Advan A048 tyres as standard. The A048 is designed primarily for track day users, but is also e-marked and therefore road-legal.

Commenting on the news, Yokohama HPT Ltd managing director, David Seward, said: “We are delighted that Lotus Cars has chosen Yokohama tyres to provide the all-important interface between car and road across both the 2006 Elise and Exige ranges.

“All variants within the model range are clearly designed to reward the driver with a unique driving experience and this is very much in line with the design brief for Yokohama tyres in general. We know the [Advan A048] is incredibly popular with track day and motorsport users and to have it chosen as OE by a manufacturer such as Lotus further demonstrates its success and reinforces the Advan brand.”
