Auto News of Germany has compiled a list of Europe’s top 15 lightest cars. And true to Colin Chapman’s ethos of low weight, Lotus has earned a place on the list with the Lotus Elise S.

And boasts the highest HP on the list to boot!

or even the Exige 260 could have been on that list at 2020lbs and 257hp.

I'm beginning to question the completeness of the list. =)

The official (homologation) papers of my Elise S say '951 - 937 kg', which is nonsense. So I've put her on a scale at KomoTec last year. The result is 832 kg with about 50% tank contents (4 bars on the fuel gauge). The car does not have a/c.
