My Elise

2010 Lotus Elise 1.6 (Burnt Orange)

My Elise was imported to Norway from Germany in Easter 2012. It was registered for the first time in Norway on 2012-04-03.

The car has a puny 1.6 engine with a modest power output of 136 PS, but since it is fairly light-weight (only 876 kg) the performance is adequate and it is an agile and fun car to toss around a track.

It is my primary car for track days and weekend trips.

Burnt Orange

Burnt Orange (paint code B135) is a premium paint colour that is priced at £2,100.

The colour is very special and really comes alive in the sun.
