My Lotus Diary August 2003

16th August 2003

The latest press articles suggest that VW are planning to launch an Elise competitor at the October motorshow. No, seriously! Apparently, VW chief, Bernd Pischetsrieder's daughter drives a Lotus Elise and it has inspired a sub-700kg roadster that will feature plenty of airbags but no central locking, power steering or electric windows. How ironic is that? With a 2.0, 150bhp engine, performance will be impressive. If it's true though, the fact that will really hurt Lotus is the target 15k price tag. This is VW we are talking about, I didn't believe it either.
