One from a recent driving trip to Wales:



After a load of money it is pretty much at my perfect spec for a road racer. Can't see me ever selling this thing. It's loud, raw and rather wonderful. smile

Haha. Very good.

I love these pictures. They encapsulate, for me, what a Lotus is for. They exist purely for having fun. As toy cars do for a child.

I don't get it confused

Incidently I drove to that car park twice in the first week I had my Elise (via Ockham Common). Happy memories smile

Love that.

I prefer plain old ventilated discs these days but great looking car, I bet it's a great drive.

Thanks and yes it is an absolute cracker to drive. Louder and more focused than my Caterham but to be honest fairly borderline as a road car- it's quite hardcore smile

With the standard Sport 160 mapping, relatively firm Nitrons and Quaife straight cut box it is a pain at low speeds. But truly comes alive when 'on it'.

Very much a car of 2 personalities but thoroughly absorbing and I love it!

Seen you have an air cooled 911 - how does it compare for fun against the Elise?
