After two heavy weight concept cars, this one shows that Lotus is still commited to its light weight philosophy with the Elise. Lotus couldn't do things half way when it comes to renewing their best seller and most popular sports car. So they offered the Elise a brand new face, a very pretty one.

From a technical side of view, the elise is still a light weight compact sports car with a small powerful engine. The turbocharged 2.0 L four cylinder engine coming from Toyota pumps out 320 hp and helps the slightly heavier Elise (1092 KG, 2408 pounds) to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds. But let's forget those extra kilograms since this Elise is truly a nice thing to look at.
