  • Lotus 2-Eleven s/c (2008) review

    Price:  £41,180

    24 September 2008 by Nick Trott

    The 2-Eleven is the most track-focused road car Lotus has ever built. And we’ve emphasised the ‘road car’ bit because despite the wings and splitters and launch control and racing stripes the Lotus...

  • Lotus Exige 270E Tri-Fuel (2008) review

    28 April 2008 by Jesse Crosse

    At 270bhp, this is the most powerful Exige Lotus has ever built yet it is also one of the most environmentally friendly. The Exige 270E Tri-Fuel, to give it its full title, has been produced by...

  • Lotus Elise SC (2008) review

    Price:  £32,550

    10 January 2008 by the CAR road test team

    We’ve been subjected to some rather tenuous special edition Elises in the past, but this is a bit different. The fastest, most powerful production version of Lotus’s baby sports car yet, it’s...

  • Lotus Exige S Performance Pack (2007) review

    Price:  £37,550

    04 December 2007 by the CAR road test team

    What? Another new Exige? Yes indeed, but don’t be expecting anything too groundbreaking: this is evolution over revolution. Essentially we’re talking 2008 model year changes here and the addition of...

  • Lotus Exige 265E (2007) review

    03 June 2007 by Angus Fitton

    It looks like a slightly more colourful Exige - what's the story? This is the Exige 265E - the fastest ever Exige and the first bio-ethanol Lotus. The digits 265 denote the 265PS power output, or...

  • Lotus Europa S (2006) review

    Price:  £33,945

    10 September 2006 by Ben Barry

    What's this – a slightly bigger Elise? Kind of. Lotus claims the Europa delivers the majority of the Elise and Exige's driving thrills while offering a load more practicality and comfort – 'business...

  • Lotus Elise S (2006) review

    Price:  £24,500

    31 July 2006 by Angus Fitton

    I'm stumped. It looks exactly the same as the Elise R, so why's it here? When Rover died the entry level, K-Series-powered Elise went with it along with a loyal customer base that couldn't stretch to...
