The Lotus Elise was rightly described as the world’s most advanced sports car when it made its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September 1995. Famously named after a grand-daughter of Romano Artioli, the then chairman of Lotus, it was built on a futuristic epoxy-bonded extruded aluminium chassis. Designed and developed in-house at Lotus, it was a genuine innovation that rewrote the rule book on lightweight automotive engineering.

The time-honoured relationship between 'form and function' was clearly evident in the way the Elise handled, with double-wishbone, independent coil-over suspension, rack and pinion steering, and ventilated disc brakes. Its lightweight chassis-tub, at just 690kg and two-piece ‘clamshell’ fibreglass bodywork paired to a mid-mounted, 1.8-litre K-series engine, produced 118bhp, enough to propel the car to 60mph in just 6.1 seconds with more than adequate torque.

The Elise was a reaction to the corpulent world of leather, luxury, and levers becoming increasingly evident in Lotus road cars, and was an attempt to recreate Colin Chapman’s early principles before he abandoned them in a move upmarket. The early cars were followed in 2002 by the Series 2 but the simpler, more demure Series 1 still defines the breed.

This particular Elise, first registered in March 1999, is a rather special iteration, having been fitted with the ever popular Turbo Technics TT190 Supercharger conversion by Hanger 111 when just 5000 miles old. This particular system results in a power increase from the 118 BHP as standard, to an astonishing 188bhp, with 170lb ft torque. Purchased by its current owner from Cotswold Motorsport in July 2019, ‘T945 JOG’ has now covered just 33,411 miles from new, with only 4 former keepers and has been looked after largely by Lotus and performance car specialists.

‘T945 JOG’ comes accompanied with its original book pack containing driving controls, technical data and warranty booklet, dealer directory and maintenance record book. As well as this, a copy of the original purchase order, Lotus EEC Certificate of Conformity, a large collection of previous MOT certificates and invoices, the current V5C document and two sets of keys with accompanying fobs.
