Profile

Having done the impossible and improved on the original Elise, Lotus then answered the only remaining complaint levelled at the S2, lack of power. Introducing the Elise 111S.

The new model shares it's name with the hotter performance derivative of the original Elise but this time goes even further by introducing such luxuries as carpets, leather and even air conditioning! Power is up to 156bhp which brings a modest 5mph increase in top speed but more significantly chops nearly 3 seconds from the Elise's 0-100mph sprint.

By finally adopting practical creature comforts the new 111S, at just 28k, can be considered a definite alternative to the class leading Porsche Boxster.
