    Spy Shots: Lotus spotted testing more extreme Elise on the Nordschleife
    1408478400

    If we had a nickel for every version of the Elise that Lotus has rolled out over the years, we might actually have enough spare change to buy one ourselves. And we're not even talking about the entire separate models (like the Exige and Europa) that Lotus has based on the Elise's platform or the other automakers' cars (like the Tesla Roadster and ...

    Recalls: Lotus recalls 2008-2011 Elise, Exige and 2011 Evora over fire fear
    1407060000

    Lotus is recalling 860 vehicles after discovering that the oil cooler hose could detach from its fitting. Should the hose separate, it could spray oil on one of the lightweight car's tires, giving new meaning to the phrase "sudden loss of grip." The other case is, believe or not, more dire, as the spraying oil could hit the engine and ignite. Of course, ...

    Video: Lotus Exige V6 Cup takes extreme to the extreme
    1405378800

    What separates a road car from a race car? You're looking at it. It's the Lotus Exige V6 Cup, a model based on what is already one of the most hardcore performance machines on the road, albeit upgraded to an even harder-core spec. It's a good 130 pounds (59 kilograms) lighter than the Exige S (a vehicle which didn't have much flab to trim in the first ...

    Video: Elise Time Attack could be most extreme Lotus yet
    1404842400

    The Lotus Elise has given birth to some seriously fast and varied machinery. Aside from Lotus' own models like the Exige, 2-Eleven, 340R and Europa, electric vehicles like the Tesla Roadster, not to mention the never-released Dodge Circuit and Detroit Electric SP:01, are all based on the Elise's platform. As were/are the Melkus RS 2000, the Opel ...

    1403045940

    As Top Gear's mysterious test driver, The Stig has driven just about everything on wheels – and more than a few things without. But an F1 car? That still remains a rarity, even on Top Gear. That all changes in this latest promo clip, though. The video shows what happened when his Royal Stigness arrived at the headquarters of the Lotus F1 team in ...
