On this Thursday on the Thames we have three of Lotus’s greatest lightweight two seaters which range from playful roadsters to dedicated track machines. Technically, the latter isn’t strictly a Lotus at all, rather it’s Caterham’s modern-day interpretation of the classic Lotus Seven.

This Elise by Matchbox is of the Superfast line of the early 2000's, fitted with blinged-out rims and superb tampo detailing all around.

The Exige from Matchbox’s sports car five-pack a few years back is excellent in this distinctive shade of dark blue.

And finally, this classy Caterham with the iconic badging down the sides picked out in a striking yellow.

Thanks for looking, and see you all tomorrow on French Friday!
