The Lotus Elise
There’s a good word that sums up the Lotus Elise, and that word is ‘connected’. In a world where cars are more and more divorced from both driver and road, the lightweight Elise is a sportscar that still delivers the best seat-of-the-pants feel this side of a Caterham.
Still around after all this time because no other car epitomises the spirit and ethos of Lotus. Its chassis is brilliant, thanks to continual subtle evolution of its nuances - good enough to offset the droning engines, awkward access, impracticality...
A mid-engined, rear-wheel drive with responsive lightweight chassis, combine to deliver the ultimate driving sensation, focussed on providing phenomenal feedback with surefooted handling. A reputation as a true driver’s car combined with low CO2emissions mean the Elise is the perfect sports car for today’s roads.
The Elise is a pure-bred sports car, offering exhilarating top-down motoring at an affordable price. Power is provided by an eager 1.6-litre engine, a lightweight in-line four, producing 134 hp with impressive CO2 emissions of just 149 g/km*. In simple terms, supercar performance combined with city car economy.
