Lotus’s Position

The pictures below are all from Lotus Cars, UK. I asked them for permission to put them on my site, but they never replied. I’ll take that as an implied, “Yes.”

In any case, here’s contact information for Lotus. If you e-mail them, bug them about bringing the car to the U.S. And if you end up buying one after seeing my pages here, I would consider a quick drive in your Elise as “paid in full.”

These are promotional photographs from Lotus Cars, UK. The Lotus Turbo Esprit used to be one of my favorite “exotics” (translation: any car out of my price range). I like the Elise even more.

The base mid-engined, two-seater Elise comes with a 1.8 liter, 118 hp 4-cylinder engine. This puny engine is enough to take this 1,606 lb (730 kg) lb car to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 5.9 seconds. That’s not too shabby in my book.

What is pictured above is the Lotus Elise Sport with a 1.8 liter, 135 hp engine. Their literature calls this car a “track-only version.” It has more horsepower, stiffer suspension, and somehow less weight. Their claimed 0-60 mph (not 62) time is 5.01 sec.

If there’s one car that gets me drooling, this may be it. It is a special version of the Lotus Elise with a 190 hp engine.

Think of the Lotus 340R as a lightweight Elise. (Please excuse me -- my palms are getting sweaty.)
