The Lotus Elise Cup 250 will reach sixty in 3.9 seconds while its top speed is at 154 mph. Lotus will only build 200 units per year, probably because they don’t have enough space for storing more of those GT3-style diffusers.
Brothers, sisters, rejoice! The wail of a new Lotus Elise and a new Lotus Exige are both on the horizon! Listen closely, listen carefully, and then listen a lot – a whole big lot – more longer. Keep listening. And listening. For years. Because the Lotus CEO said that while we are getting two new Lotii to replace the…
[Lotus is celebrating 20 years of the Elise with a limited edition that's 22 pounds lighter because what else is Lotus going to do?]
What happens when you have a toe link failure flat out at 110 mph? Uh, it's not great.
Tesla makes the best automotive easter eggs, from stereos that go to 11 to hidden little features in its massive 17-inch display. But this? This just wins.

When you were a kid, you wanted to own a race car. Then you grew up and realized that your hip hurts when you get out of bed in the morning and you're not a millionaire.

TRACK DAY, BRO. What did you bring, a Lotus Elise? I guess that's fine, if your idea of a track day is taking a nice nap. Me, I'm coming in this: the Lotus Elise S Cup, the most extreme road-going Elise ever.
Reason 8,598,477 to lose faith in humanity: A man once woke up in the morning and said to himself, "Today I'm going to give my Lotus Elise a paint job with flaming electric blue playing cards."
The Lotus Elise is now a $30,000 car that looks like a rich man's ride. That puts it on a strange border of being an exotic to some, a regular car to others, as Regular Car Reviews will now demonstrate.
The Lotus Elise is one of the smallest cars in all of the land. One thing that is smaller is an AC Cobra from Pocket Classics. Here's what happens when they race.
I'm in a Lotus-y mood this afternoon thanks to that video of 1980s Lotus car club meets. Few small companies have had as many ups and downs and have continued to struggle on the way Lotus has. You can't keep a good sports car down!

The Hennessey Venom GT could be the most insane vehicle every to qualify as a "production" car. Twelve-hundred horsepower, 2,548 pounds and 100% batshit.

Lotus cup driver Andreas Holzleithner enters the tortuous arena of his garage to pull the engine out of his Exige-bodied Mk1 Elise racer. Over two-and-a-half hours, how many licks will it take to get to the motor in the middle?
Cheaper, lighter, faster? Shouldn't every entry-level sports car share those values? Lotus's new entry Elise for Europe — the Club Racer — is at least two of those things. Just 1,931lbs, the stripped-down Elise is exactly what Chapman ordered. Is it the last hurrah of the Lotus he envisioned?
I can barely type right now I'm so excited. Who knew Stephen Baldwin was going to release four of the hottest supercars ever today? The 2015 Lotus Elise will be the smallest and cheapest, but just look at it!
Hey you, insane person, here's your car. It's a turbocharged, supercharged and intercooled Lotus Exige with a claimed
550HP 700HP (!), a wide-body kit, fully race-prepped interior and weighing 2,150 lbs. The best part? It's for sale. Updated.
