The Elise is one of the world’s finest | Thank Frankel it’s Friday

For me it is somewhat sobering to consider that the Lotus Elise has been in production for rather more than one third of the life of Lotus to date. By the time the last one is finally built this autumn, it will have seen some 25 summers. In its entire history only one car, the Esprit, will have had more. Odd, isn’t it, because in my mind’s eye the Lotus 7 was in production for aeons, but its 15 years before being sold to Graham Nearn of Caterham Cars scarcely compares.
