My 2005 Lotus Elise Coupe
Small, but beautiful and zippy AF.

I've always liked the Lotus, but always thought it was out of reach..

Well apparently not anymore.. Because I just acquired one LOL!

Anyways, found this one in Hayward, CA, pretty close to home.

Lotus and Me

Here's a bit more about the car.

The Lotus Elise is a small roadster that is known for its razor sharp steering and no compromises track car feel. The Elise is a small two seat soft top roadster. It weighs a mere 1,975 lbs and has four-wheel fully independent suspension. Somewhat sparse on the inside, the Elise doesn't pretend to be a luxury car. Its main purpose is to go fast around a track and that's what it does. It is powered by a tuned Toyota 190 hp 1.8-liter, 16-valve four-cylinder engine that is controlled by a C64 six-speed manual transmission. For 2005, the Lotus Elise makes its first time appearance in North America.

Engine 1.8LI-4, MPG 23 City / 27 Hwy, Seating 2 Passengers, Transmission 6-spd man w/OD
Power 190 @ 7800 rpm, Drivetrain rear-wheel

The Elise has everything you need if you are looking for a pure sports car and nothing that you don't need. Handling is spectacular. Acceleration is great. Fuel economy is excellent. Looks are judged favorably by the general public compared to almost anything else including cars costing ten times as much. Best value for money in a sports car anywhere. Noise level is a little high. Getting in and out takes practice. Ride is not cushy. Drive is fantastic.
