Dan Trent: Light is right in the Lotus Elise S1

I've just been driving the latest Lotus Elise – the lighter, less fussy Sprint with its impressive sub-800kg kerb-weight. OK, this symbolic figure comes in its 'motorsport dry' state and you'd need to add a tank of fuel before you could actually drive it. But according to Lotus it's still the lightest car homologated for sale in Europe and marks a welcome return to the minimalist, no-nonsense thrills of the original 1996 Elise.
