Great review of the original Elan. Thanks for sharing it

Have loved the original since first seeing it as a kid. Watching the Avengers and Emma peel. Only realised what a wonderful car it was in the last 10 - 15 years.

Would love to add one to the garage. But I don't have enough space or spare time to keep 3 Lotuses on the road.

I also do not think there are any of the cars over here..

Maybe a retirement project for me ?

I loved Peter Egan's articles in R&T, especially his humorous automotive ramblings.
He also inserted Lotus as one of the must own cars in my automobile continuum.
Beautiful car!
