RR of the Day: 2005 Lotus Elise

For today's RR of the Day we could have waxed poetic about the joys of the Elise for several paragraphs, but honestly, what more needs to be said about the feather-weight Lotus? Know the 1.8-liter, 190-hp, mid-mounted four. Understand Colin Chapman's obsession with speed through lightweight. Love the undisturbed connection between man and machine.

It's four-wheeled beauty personified and if you haven't had the chance to get behind the wheel of one yet, do so by any legal means necessary.

This particular example is owned by Flickr member Fleur-Designs, who already knows the Elise is a head-turner, but decided to opt for the retina-scalding Krypton Green to cause bouts of whiplash among pedestrians in Louisville, Kentucky.

If you'd like to see your own ride featured here, simply upload photos of your ride into our Flickr group. We select one image to highlight each week day, and on the weekend let you vote for the RR of the Week. Detailed instructions can be found after the jump.

How to submit to RR of the Day:
Create a
Flickr account if you don't already have one. Search for and join the group called 'Autoblog RR of the Day'. Upload up to three photos of your ride to your own account at a size no larger than 450 pixels wide if possible and include as much information about it and yourself as possible. Even if your ride is sweet, it will not be chosen if there's not a lot of info accompanying it. Click on each photo and just above the picture it will say "Send to group". Click that and select the Autoblog group. You're done, that's it!
