“Superb focused sports car”

Written on: 20/08/2011 by lightning (21 reviews written)

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 is… Read Full Review

Written on: 12/01/2008

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 Full Review

Written on: 09/05/2004 by Alison Leary (1 review written)

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 Full Review

Psg001's Response to Alison Leary's Review

Written on: 20/03/2005

It is not a bad car, but it can hardly be described as comfortable!! It is so rough, it is a go-kart for the road, which is probably why most people buy them, tremendous fun.
<br>
<br>There are better cars around, faster and more reliable. Can't be beaten for looks. Think it could be faster.

201897_Lotus111S's Response to Alison Leary's Review

Written on: 15/07/2005

Actually the 111s is very comfortable due to the leather bucket seats. The older S2 version was 'extremeley' uncomfortable. yes it is a real drivers car and in that you feel every bump in the road and the car grips brilliantly....however the SEATS are comfortable. (perhaps you should go on a long drive in one before you disagree)

Written on: 24/02/2004 by js111s (1 review written)

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 Full Review

Written on: 06/03/2003 by lotus fan. (1 review written)

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 Full Review

Revvyman's Response to 77781_lotus fan.'s Review

Written on: 03/03/2004

LOTUS = LOADS OF TROUBLE, USUALLY SERIOUS!!
<br>
<br>As an S2000 owner who has creamed over Elise\'s on numerous track days (particularily in the wet), I thing you are vv wrong!
<br>Used to have an Esprit, and loved it when it worked! Elise is a good car but too compromised for everyday use

Written on: 24/05/2002 by William2. (1 review written)

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 Full Review

Written on: 05/12/2001 by Dave G. (1 review written)

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 Full Review

Written on: 05/04/2000 by Scot Thomas. (1 review written)

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 Elise… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/03/2000 by Gareth Prosser. (1 review written)

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 Full Review
