The Elise S1

Turning back the clock to some classic Top Gear, and to when Lotus was under Bugatti’s purview (the automotive universe having undergone some major realignment since then, obviously). Tiff puts the then-new Elise S1 through its paces on some damp northern British B roads, followed by the requisite on-track evaluation. Sounds good to us.

Watching Tiff assemble the manual top makes us wonder which car’s is fussier, the S1’s or the Boxster Spyder’s.
