Most fun car I've owned

by Elise's friend from Wichita, KS on Thu Sep 15 2011

The most fun per pound and most fun per dollar you'll ever find ! With Ferrari looks, Lamborghini handling and mini cooper size, it turns more heads than anything else on the road.

Worlds Smallest Super Car

by Georgiadawgs98 from Florida on Wed Feb 05 2014

2011 was the last model year for the Elise in the US market. Per official Lotus' Archives there were only 77 Elises sold in the US that year. This car is beautiful and a head turner. It is faster than most people think. The Toyota Engine is just the shell and has been modified and tuned by Lotus engineers so it is not a Celica's motor by any means. 1.8 liter and 0-60 in 4.8 sec. It is the only street legal race car. The handling is the best of any exotic/sports car. No Ferrari or Lamborghini can beat this little car in any twisty road. Most likely collectible since they will never bring it back to America. Get yourself one if you can!

I love this car. It is the greatest one I have ever had. Although Interior could be a little nice for the Price. Zoom Zoom Zoom

Fast and Fun

by Lotus Lover from Michigan on Sat May 28 2016

I absolutely love the Lotus Elise SC special edition. As one of the lucky 15 to own a 2011, it is definitely a head turner and puts a smile on my face every time I press down on the gas pedal. The car handles beautifully and is incredibly fun to drive. Getting in/out isn't the easiest, but its a small price to pay to drive this fantastic car.
