I bought my Elise 111s to replace a Ferrari (that I could no longer afford to maintain) and it's a superb car. There's really nothing to fault for the kind of car it is. The boot is large enough for a weekend away, perfomance is outstanding, and it looks great. If there was one criticism it's that it rattles rather a lot, although I've cured most of them with a bit of tinkering (well, a lot of tinkering) It also manages 35+ mpg and is surprisingly good on longer motorway trips, although mine...

This is my 1st lotus. I own a Ferrari and wanted another car to add to my collection. I decided on the Lotus and cannot be happier. My Ferrari is the better car, yet for the money the Lotus is the best value. It is actually on the same level with the Ferrari. Save yourself the $120,000 I spent on the Ferrari and buy yourself the Lotus. (read more)

Being a female I was concerned on silly things like the driving postion, parking and just the power of the car...however it is just so easy to drive and I absolutley love the car...words just cant describe how amazing it is.
The whole driving experience cant be beaten and I cant ever imagine driving another car.
My only regret? is that I didnt get it years ago..i've wasted so long driving run of the mill cars!!!! (read more)

This is my second Lotus Elise and by far the best. The 111s is more refined, but you don't lose that Elise handling and driver feedback. With a sports exhaust added you get that rumbling noise matched with the looks. Just awesome. (read more)

The last review said the Lotus Elise 111S that it has rivals like honda s2000. Maybe the reviewer can drive it properly. On any track the elise would crush ferrari 486's, plus i hate hondas, i have got one with about 170 bhp does 0-60 4.5 secs, move over ferrari's. Love it. (read more)

Overall, the Lotus Elise 111s is an outstanding car. It is also, at the same time, a great dollar value. The only cars that can rival this one in dollar value are the Honda S2000 (240hp)(Top Speed:150mph) and the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution (276hp)(Top Speed:158mph) VII. All three of these cars are great. (read more)

Probably the best Lotus Elise (including S2) for cross-country 'A' and 'B' roads. Higher performance and close-ratio gears etc. all make it a perfect match. Most refined of the Mk-1 range with all the Lotus Elise characteristics of direct handling. But it's essential to do some driver training if you've not had one before. (read more)

What can be said that the industry has not said already? The Lotus Elise has a chassis to die for, incredible feedback, it's fast and only has enough boot space for your girlfriend to pack her lingerie. It's also a convertible. It can be a little bit difficult to get in and out of with the hood on but it only reminds me of hopping into fighter planes at air shows as a kid - that same smugness of it. As for value for money you have to weigh up the standard Elise with modifications vs... (read more)

Only area in which the Elise 111S is lacking is noise. Quickly remedied by fitment of a sports exhaust and removing the cat. The Lotus Elise 111S is awesome!! The amount of fun to be had driving it for the sake of driving is unbelievable. Can't wait for the summer and numerous track days!! (read more)
