Lotus Elise

The Lotus Elise was first introduced in 1996. It is an extremely lightweight roadster that has a philosophy of less is more. This translates into the least amount of weight possible in order to maximize performance. Inside, you won't find any luxury features such as navigation system, CD players, stereo, and even air conditioning. This is a true, back-to-basics street legal racer that is here to remind us that racing in its purest form still exists.

It's hard to find direct competition for Elise other than its hard top sibling, the Exige. Only now is Porsche catching on to this lightweight philosophy with its new Boxster Spyder. Perhaps that is what makes the Elise and Lotus in general so unique. They are one of the only automakers who takes a bare knuckles approach to building a sports car that is purposely built for the track.
