Lotus Elise The Official Story

Every fascinating stage of the development of the Elise, Lotus Type 111, was explored in this fully comprehensive book, LOTUS ELISE: THE OFFICIAL STORY.

From the Elise’s conception, through production, and all the way to its marketing, every
part of the story was covered in depth. Produced with the full co-operation of Lotus Cars,
who again gave access to the company’s archives as well as their employees, this book
contained the reminiscences of virtually everyone involved in the concept and design of
the Elise.

Through its production and subsequent development into the Series 2 model of 2001, every variation of the Elise is described by Jeremy Walton, the only journalist invited to attend the the project 111 development meetings back in 1994. Jeremy’s close involvement and obvious enthusiasm for the Elise project is reflected by the openness of all involved, to tell us the real stories behind the car.

LOTUS ELISE: THE OFFICIAL STORY a stunning 208-page full color publication, and its large 12x12 inch (30x30cm) format contained over 500 pictures, drawings and photographs.
