Lotus Reviews


The brainchild of British engineer and former Royal Air Force pilot Colin Chapman, this exclusive niche automaker focuses on producing cars that are fun, fast, and hard to fit into. However, don't let the small size fool you — what the Lotus lineup may lack in headroom, it definitely makes up for in horsepower. For pictures, prices, specs, and (of course) top speeds of these sleek and sporty coupes, check out our list of Lotus reviews below.

Lotus Elise
The people at Lotus have been watching their weight, and this pint-sized performance coupe is proof of their efforts. Weighing in at a trim 1,984 pounds, the Elise is quick, responsive, and—with an engine capable of producing 189 horsepower and top speeds of 150 mph—incredibly powerful.

Lotus Evora
Combining Lotus' famed performance engineering with an intelligent interior design, the Evora is a 4-passenger sport coupe that is aimed at ease of use. However, "easy to use" doesn't, in this case, mean easy to get a hold of—only about 2,000 of these fine-tuned speed machines are produced each year.
