This Lotus Elise SC model is regarded by many as the most enjoyable in the Lotus range. The supercharged engine gives good acceleration at any engine speed unlike most Elise and Exige models which need to use high revs, and this one has Touring Pack and Sports Pack options including air conditioning, electric windows and audio system, with bodywork in gorgeous Canyon Red paint.
The Elise is a true lightweight, with steering feel better than any other car, very sporty handling and performance yet also a comfortable ride. It’s also weatherproof against the wet and cold unlike our Caterham 7, and fun to drive on any twisty road or A-road. There’s a small boot for luggage where a couple of small suitcases or rucksacks will fit.
The interior is snug and comfortable with Pro-Bax ergonomic seats, air conditioning and a Blaupunkt CD Radio sound system. All the controls are light in action including the unassisted steering and gearshift, which makes the car feel feather-light and responsive, with a little understeer near the limit then a balanced feel on a light throttle through the corners. The fabric roof can be unclipped or replaced in 2 minutes.
This makes the Lotus an extremely fun sports car to hire that is enjoyable to drive on any road, while the ride and interior is surprisingly comfortable if you’re happy with the wind!
Delivery isn’t provided, we focus on keeping our services and mileage affordable for you to collect the car and enjoy driving it home, or explore the great driving roads nearby in North Wales visiting tourist attractions and taking advantage of our package deals at Spa Hotels.
