Engineer Colin Chapman wanted to design lightweight sports cars with great handling. In 1952 Lotus was founded in England and the rest is history. Lotus cars are excellent at what they are designed to do – be light, quick and nimble. Lotus manufactures sporty coupes and convertibles that look great and perform like no other.
A two-door sports car with a removable roof panel that is purpose built to be an exceptional track car as well as a street car, the 2008 Lotus Elise is now available in two new trims; the SC and the California.
