LOTUS ELISE (1996-) CAR HISTORY

Car review on LOTUS ELISE

Light weight was always Colin Chapman's very first priority when designing a new Lotus. After his death in 1982, Lotus engineers adhered to this principle, and in the Elise, which epitomized it, they produced a spiritual successor to the immortal Lotus 7.


The heart of the Elise, and the reason why it was so light, was its perfectly functional chassis. Breaking with Lotus tradition, it was a monocoque design formed from pieces of lightweight aluminum, literally stretched into shape and glued together. Even the brakes were aluminum composite. This was the secret of its lightness.


The suspension was so good it needed no anti-roll bars, and testers were unanimous in their praise: this was simply the finest handling car ever made.


While the 1989 Elan was front-engine and front-wheel drive, the Elise was mid-engine and rear-wheel drive, and all the more enjoyable for this change. The chosen engine was Rover's all-aluminum 1.8-litre K-series (as fitted to the MGF), complete with its gearbox. This provided all the performance it needed: after all the Elise was only about half the weight of a small family hatchback.


The best thing about it, though, was its price: at under £20,000 ($33,000) in the UK it was a bargain.
