The Design process for project M1-11 is a brilliant, brilliant documentary about the design and development that would culminate in the original Lotus Elise, in the mid 90’s.
For someone like me, interested in all the myriad decisions that go into the making of something as complex as a sports car, it gives a window into something quite rarely available to see. I will add that it’s almost nerdy in the details it shows.
Furthermore, the centrepiece is the Lotus Elise, a true icon and one of the truly great and defining sports cars of the last 20-30 years.
Find some time (it’s 2h30m long…), grab a drink and sit back.
