The Elise saw the return of the genuinely exciting sports car. This was the first Lotus for a generation to truly revive Colin Chapman's ideals, proving a worthy successor to the seminal Lotus 7. The Elise was the first modern sports car to generate real enthusiasts, tempting many classic car fans to change their allegiance to this no-compromise contemporary classic. Nearly 11.000 Elises have been built since its 1995 launch and an ongoing programme of development ensures that it still retains its status.
This book charts the complete Elise story, including interviews with the car's designer and development engineers. It contains information on buying, owning and running an Elise and features details of aftermarket accessories and modifications. Also included are appendices detailing model specifications, performance data, production figures and full listings of dealers, specialists and clubs.
