Does what it engineered for exceptionally well
June 21, 2018
The Lotus Elise was built to be a road going track car. It is just that. Dont get into this thinking its going to be great for a long road trip although I have spent a few hours at a time in it. Its always shocking to me when people fault it for being exactly what it is. What is it? A small, low, nimble, light, simple vehicle, with great engineering. There are very few driver aids like power steering and the air conditioning is almost useless if temps get into the 90's. But that's the point. It's a drivers car through and through. They didn't pretend by dressing it up and calling it a sports car that you can take to the track. Instead, its a street legal race car that you can park in your garage.
