2015 Lotus Elise surprise reveal in Paris [video]

If wanted always wanted a longer, heavier and more expensive Elise, 2015 will be the year of your dreams.

Lotus has unveiled the 2015 Elise at the Paris Motor Show.

Available as a coupe and roadster (the Exige name will apparently be dropped), the new Elise features shark-inspired styling, floating taillights, and a variety of carbon fiber components. Furthermore, thanks to a longer extruded aluminum chassis, entry and egress should be vastly improved.

Power is provided by a supercharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine which produces 300 PS (221 kW / 296 hp) and 350 PS (257 kW / 345 hp).  Paired to a robotized manual transmission, the 1095 kg (2,414 lb) Elise should be fairly quick.

While the current Elise starts around £27,450 the 2015 model is expect to retail for £40,000.
