Ever since the Series 1 Elise tipped the scales at a paltry 725kg, Lotus has been showing the world that it’s possible to perfect the roadster recipe. Think of it like Mary Berry’s famous Victoria Sponge, but in this case, Mary has suddenly decided to focus on lightweight, mid-engined, manual gearboxed sports cars.

Anyway, production of the Elise will finally come to an end later this year, and to celebrate Lotus has built something called the Elise Sport 240 Final Edition. Thanks to modern safety requirements and emissions regs it now weighs 930kg, but that still gives it the right to walk up to Porsche Boxster owners and ask them why their car weighs so damned much.
