It's regarded as one of the best sports vehicles of its time but, despite its straight-line speed, the Lotus Elise has been declared by What Car? as the slowest car. That's slow, when it comes to depreciation! This is excellent news for buyers of course, as the model is retaining more of its purchase price than rivals. And with five-star reviews of the latest Elise Sport and Elise Sprint now published, it shows there's never been a better time to find out what makes this Lotus so special. Depreciation is the single biggest ownership running cost, and some rival performance models lose their owners more than they'd like to admit in the first years of ownership. But buyers' bible What Car? rates the Elise as top in class, retaining up to 95% of its price after 12 months and over 54% of after four years with average mileage. "At Lotus, we design and build our cars to be the best, from the quality of the engineering to the experience from behind the wheel," said Jean-Marc Gales, CEO, Group Lotus plc. "We're second to none in refining the very definition of a sports car." At the heart of the Elise line up is the new Sprint edition, which combines traditional British craftsmanship with the best of contemporary styling.
