Lotus recently celebrated its 70th year anniversary and that's no mean feat considering the challenges that this British icon has had to face down the years (even if it's now officially Chinese owned). The formula is relatively simple, light chassis with eye-popping engines and all extras are optional. Even if old Lotus road versions were described as 'roller skates', this can be taken as a compliment as Lotus won seven Formula One Constructors titles, six drivers Championships and the Indy 500 to boot! These days, there are four Lotus models to choose from, the Evora, the Exige, the Elise and the 3-Eleven. The Evora GT430 Sport will do 0-60mph in 3.6 seconds aided by its excellence lightweight engineering, weighting in at only 1,248 Kgs. The 3.5 litre V6 engine also has something to do with it and produces 430 HP. The Exige looks like a million dollars, and if you have an ounce of boy (or girl) racer in you than it will get the blood pumping on sight as the 3.5 litre V6 whooshes you to 60 mph in 3.2 seconds. The Elise is possibly the best known and the most accessible with its all alloy 1.8 litre four-cylinder engine developing 250 hp and a more than respectable 0-60 mph time of 3.8 seconds while the zany 3-Eleven takes only 3.1 seconds.
