2. Model History

Much has happened at Lotus in the last 20 years but one thing has remained a constant – the enduring brilliance of the Elise. It’s called the Sport these days and there are two versions: one with a naturally aspirated 134bhp 1.6-litre engine and the other with a supercharged 1.8 that produces 217bhp (220PS). The Sport 220’s power-to-weight ratio is perfect. The entry-level car’s power is a bit too modest and the next up from the 220, the Cup 250, has more than you need. Not surprisingly, the 220 is fast, but what’s particularly impressive is how good its engine feels. For a modern four-cylinder, it also sounds fantastic, almost as if it’s drinking and breathing through a pair of DCOEs.

The power delivery has an old-fashioned flavour to it, too, the characteristic way a supercharged engine feels as if it’s got a larger cubic capacity rather than simply more power. So the power builds seamlessly and, with gearing that is perfectly matched, thrust out of corners or when overtaking is impressive. Lotus’s open-gate gear lever is a big improvement on previous shifters and sexy enough to not need a surround or gaiter.

A worthy winner of Evo magazines 2017 'Best Sports Car of the Year'.

3. Interior

The Elise’s sparse interior smacks of focus and simplicity. Most of the sills, floor, central tunnel and dash are left as exposed aluminium. Our car was opted with the leather & Alcantara trimmed bucket seats with a mix of leather & Alcantara flowing through the rest of the cabin.

4. Exterior

The design of the Lotus Elise hasn't changed all that much from the original S1. With tweaks over the years occurring to now create its most modern and exotic form, our Elise 220 Sport is presented in Daytona Blue with the black canvas soft-top roof, 16/17 satin black alloy wheels, fixed colour-coded rear spoiler and black rear diffuser.
