Back in an Elise


Recommended Posts

After a 15 year absence and so far loving it.  The occasional moment of buyers remorse is quickly banished by even a short drive.  I've never driven anything that comes close to a Lotus for the ability to make you smile even at low speed.

I went for a club racer as in my opinion it's closest to the ethos of my old series 1.  A few extra refinements like central locking and electric windows are welcome.  I wish I'd been able to locate one without the radio and air con as I'm unlikely to use either but I guess it's better to have them.  It came with a 2bular exhaust, makes a great sound a little intrusive on a cold start when you're trying to creep off to work without waking the neighbors.

Occasionally finding myself at the wrong revs or in the wrong gear does make me wonder if I should have gone for a late R or SC. Then again the Elise never was about masses of grunt.  

Why did it take me so long...
