Lotus Elise Review 2021
Lotus Elise Daily Driver Review
Salty water, such as might be found on British roads in winter, is an excellent electrolyte.
It's incredibly lightweight, small, and barebones, with almost no interior to speak of.
Early and scruffier Rover-engined Series 2 Elises have indeed been this cheap in the past, although I can't remember any falling substantially below this.
But in truth, what makes this car so special is its chassis.
Just a couple of millimetres difference in corner heights could mean that a car has been in a shunt.
As a thing to drive on the road in amongst other traffic and without fearing for licence or liberty, I would now choose the tiny Lotus over any modern supercar.
