Lotus Elise 160

The Lotus Elise is a two seat, rear-wheel drive, mid-engined roadster conceived in early 1994 and released in September 1996

The car has a hand-finished fibreglass body shell atop its bonded extruded aluminum chassis that provides a rigid platform for the suspension, while keeping weight and production costs to a minimum. The roadster is capable of speeds up to 240 km/h (150 mph).

The 1996 Lotus Elise weighed 725 kg (1,600 lb). Braking, cornering, and fuel consumption are also improved by the car's reduced weight.

Besides the standard higher-performance variants listed below, Lotus also released some limited edition models such as the Sport 160 with 150–160 bhp 112–119 kW; 152–162 PS.
