2005 Lotus Elise 2dr Roadster (1.8L 4cyl 6M)


This is a car only for those who love to drive and KNOW how to drive well. This car will outperform most everything out there with the exception of some super cars. It is not for the driver who wants creature comforts... not a cup holder, climate control, heated seat to be found. This is essentially a street legal track car. The cool thing is that you can drive her to the track, put on your helmet and eat up a 911, Miata, Cobra, or what ever else gets in your way. Then have a nice drive home. I use mine as a daily commuter for a 110 mile round trip. It makes the drive fun and economical.

Best Features

The tone of the engine when you exceed 6,000 rpm and the second cam opens her up. The feel of driving a race car.

Worst Features

Brighter lights and putting in a blinking light in the central break light would help.
