By delivering one of the best driving experiences available, at any cost, the Elise highlights just how overweight and oversized some sports cars are. Of course, refinement and accessibility let it down a bit, but these are minor niggles compared to the fun of driving the thing. Put simply, if you’re looking for pure, undiluted driving pleasure, then the Elise is still king.
