Lotus Elise 160

The Lotus Elise 160 is a perfect example of Lotus founder Colin Chapman's philosophy - "Performance through light weight". This idea heavily influenced the Elise's design, resulteing in a sports car that tips the scales at just 720 kg (1,587 lb). This stands in stark contrast to the Porsche Boxster, a similarly-priced sports car weighing in at a hefty 1,250 kg (2,756 lb). Despite its modest power output of 120 bhp (89 kW), the Elise is still able to accelerate from 0 to 60mph in 5.8 seconds and also offers improved braking, cornering, and fuel consumption which are benefits of its low weight. Further, Lotus produces more advanced variants of the Elise with higher performance. These include the Sport 135 (1998-9) with approximately 145 bhp (108 kW), Sport 160 (2000) with 150-160 bhp (112-119 kW), and Sport 190 (190 bhp / 142 kW). These cars are specially designed for on-track use with upgraded suspension, wheels, tyres, and seats. In addition, limited edition models such as the 50th Anniversary Edition, the Type 49, and the Type 72 have been released, with unique cosmetic changes to commemorate special anniversaries or historic Grand Prix victories. Overall, the Lotus Elise 160 and its variants provide sports car lovers with an excellent combination of performance, looks, and affordability.
