davidfeldman001's review of Lotus Elise 1.8 VVTL-i 111R

★★★★★

“Insane”

Written on: 11/08/2016 by davidfeldman001 (1 review written)

Bought a used (40,000 mile) Elise as a fun day car instead of replacing our main car (a Subaru Forester turbo - why replace a car that goes like stink and never breaks down?).

What a car - the Subey seems like a snail!
My little Lotus (called Colin of course) rattles, is noisy, hard to get in or out of it, the wife hates it, gets hot with the roof on, hell to park...but if you care about any of that you don't get the point of a Lotus.

This car is the spirit of Colin Chapman - light, fun, completely mad and the most pure driving experience you can have. I would recommend the upgrade chip that brings the power cam in at 5,000 revs.
Buying it is the best decision I have made for years.
