beautiful toy for grown ups :D

I had one for about a half a year, in a crazy color called Krypton Green. The best things about the car by far were: how good it looks AND the steering. It felt so direct and communicative no matter what I was doing.

Corvette owners beware, with around 240 supercharged horse power the lotus has been highly overlooked. This car is quick. Although 240hp sounds low, it is more than enough to push this extremely light car. It looks amazing and handles even better. Great car for the money!

this has been my dream car since it's inception, Power to weight, and proper suspension, mid engine heaven, closest I ever got was an MR2... one day it shall be mine

Great Go-Kart! Not exactly a "daily driver", very much a track car. An amusing toy for grown ups. :-)

THIS IS SO NICE

this is absolutey a dream car, though I normally like cars with a lot of hp like murcielagos and the like. This is a car I would love to have, 240hp on a car so small and light as this one. This truly is a sports car because Lotus focuses on making the car fast and not fancy, you see fancy is good but not better than fast and sporty.

the lotus elise car is the best
