Latest Object of Lust

It’s a work weekend, but allow me to take ten seconds and share the most recent object of my desire.

Lotus Elise SC

Ladies and gentlemen, a 2011 Lotus Elise SC (“SC” means supercharged). Now available at Lotus of Austin.


This beaut is practically attainable for me, i.e. it’s only out of reach by a factor of 2 or so.

Sigh. Again.

I have mentioned my appreciation for the Lotus Evora, a lovely red example of which spent a few days with the Red MINI last year. The Evora is the only Lotus that is currently sold new in the US. The Elise was last sold here in 2011, and I’m not sure about the badass Exige, which is what I REALLY want. I may have mentioned that, too.

In other words, the Elise is like an out-of-print record – a hard-to-find classic, with the pricetag to prove it. If you’re after an Elise and you find one, strike while the iron is hot.

You can read more about this lovely 2011 Elise at the Lotus of Austin website. I hope she goes to an awesome home, where her new owner will drive the wheels off her. I sure would!
