Lotus has been renowned for "adding lightness" to their vehicles, so consider this modified Elise a fitting tribute to Colin Chapman.

Currently up for sale in California, the model has been converted into a track toy as key components have been jettisoned in order to reduce weight. Additionally, there are a number of upgrades including an Eaton supercharger, Alcon brakes, a Quaife differential and two mismatched sport seats. The latter oversight raises some questions, but the improvements are reportedly worth $34,222 (€24,770).

If this sounds like your cup of tea, prepare to shell out $28,977 (€20,970).
