Lotus Elise Sport

FROM £32,300

How many compact sportscars can blast from 0-60mph in just 6.0 seconds (0-100kph in 6.5secs)? The super-light Elise Sport can at just 1,909lbs (866kgs). It is the timelessly stylish, lightweight composite body, attached to an equally light aluminium alloy chassis-tub that forms the basis for several other Lotus models. That’s what does it. Yet, it is strong, which allows its suspension to work impressively, resisting body roll but remaining taut enough for the ultimate sportscar thrills, while retaining damping compliance that affords the Elise Sport an astonishingly good ride quality. It is Lotus’ years of experience and irrepressible talent that allow a car like Elise Sport to be created.
