1996 Lotus Elise

July, 2010 § 1 Comment

Founded by Colin Chapman, Lotus has been very important in car history: seven Formula One Constructors’ titles, six Drivers’ Championships and  Indianapolis 500.

I love the concept from Colin: “Simplify, then add lightness,”. So u can get incredible sports cars relatively affordabl. Elise is built to achieve great performance through lightweight (725 kg!). 5.8 seconds with only 118 bhp.

It was designed by Julian Thomson.

Enjoy the pics (the blue one is from Project Kahn):
