Lotus Elise

Lotus Elise – the bread and butter of the Lotus marque so far has been the Elise. It’s interesting to see if Lotus has done much to the original Elise’s ‘less is more’ principal. This new Elise is quoted at being 1,095kg so it’s still pretty light. The original Series 1 Elise was 725kg and the latest is about 901kg. This new baby is 200kg lighter. Power is via a 2.0 liter force inducted to make 320 PS and 330Nm of torque, taking it from 0 to 100km/h in 4.3 seconds, paired to a 6-speed manual with optional twin clutch. This Elise will debut in 2015 for about 35,000 pounds.
