Calling all Elise lovers!

Calling all Elise lovers!!

 

Since its launch in 1996, the Lotus Elise has become one of the most loved and iconic Lotus cars of all time. We have built over 30,000 Elise cars in 17 years, that’s over 33% of the Lotus’ entire production!

 

The success of the Elise is not just down to its purist dynamic characteristics or it’s cool looks; you petrolheads out there will appreciate just how clever the car is too!  From its pioneering bonded and extruded aluminium chassis to it’s composite crash structure, the Elise was the catalyst for a new generation of performance through light weight and enabled other premier niche vehicles to exist such as the Opel Speedster / Vauxhall VX220, all of the current Aston Martin range, the Tesla Roadster, Lotus’ own  Exige, Elise 340R, Europa, 2-Eleven and even the Lotus Evora.

 

Top Gear magazine has shortlisted the 1996 Lotus Elise in its quest to find the greatest car of the last 20 years.  It is an online vote that will take place in the run up to the 20th anniversary edition of the magazine. If you agree that the Elise deserves to be recognised as one of the greatest cars of the last 20 years, then please go to www.topgear.com/20years and place your vote!

If you have the choice between a Stairway to Heaven and a Highway to Hell don't forget the Nomex®!
