The Lotus Elise has always been known as a fast and fun car, and for the new year the Norfolk company has updated it with a more tender appearance and new engine to make even more desirable.

2011 Elise gets a proper facelift which makes it like the twin brother of the higher grade Evora. This new body is also more aerodynamic efficient and lighter. The chassis too is lighter so the whole car is fairly feather light at 876 kg.

So the 134 hp and 160 nm of torque provided by a 1.6 liter Valvematic Toyota engine seems to be enough to put a big small on your face every time you drive this car.

It is also very efficient at 6.14 liters / 100km (46 mpg) which is great for a sportscar, and it also covers the Euro 5 standards. The new Lotus also comes with more convenience features than the old models.
