By remaining true to the ethos of founder Colin Chapman, Lotus stands alone as a brand dedicated to pure drivers’ cars. Innovative engineering, cutting-edge technologies and advanced materials ensure that every Lotus proves the value of achieving performance through light weight. Reducing mass remains the most effective means of achieving a true connection between driver, car and road – a quality shared by every car to proudly wear the Lotus badge.
Every Lotus benefits from the company’s dedication to engineering, optimising and refining at every stage of the design and construction process. Each car is built by hand and tested around the famous test track at the factory in Hethel. Immensely proud of its heritage, Lotus combines the very best of British craftsmanship with bold, distinctive, inspirational design.
The Lotus Elise is a driving icon and an industry benchmark for vivid communication, fingertip delicacy, deft balance and intuitive response. It’s a pure-bred sports car, offering exhilarating top-down motoring at an affordable price. Power is provided by an eager 1.8 litre engine, a lightweight in-line four-cylinder. In terms of appearance the driving icon has evolved to a taut, athletic form with fine proportions and road presence far greater than its size.

A thoroughbred driver’s car with exceptional driver engagement, the Exige remains an epic, unmissable driving experience.
