He hits the nail on the head. If we don't
learn from cars like the élan, miata we're
going to be driving 600bhp/4000lb cars
that no one enjoys driving. It's about
emotion rather than numbers, that's what
I try to explain to people that ask, why a
Lotus? Some get it, but most do not. Frankly,
I'm glad that most don't get it as I'm happy
to be part of something so unique and
special.

Great video.

Very simple = the dude gets it! To me, it's the 'anti-American car' ethos. From the silly muscle cars of the late 60s to now - as Carl notes, it's all about horsepower and things like steering, suspension and god forbid, braking, are never mentioned.

Has anyone actually ever DRIVEN a vintage muscle car? My brother in law has a 442. Handles like a damn river barge and is the most uninteresting, unfulfilling, unresponsive automotive experience ever. AMAZINGLY overrated.

The video dude kinda reminds me of a non-English Chris Harris.

Thx for posting.

Excellent video. This is why I own both of those cars. My Miata is spectacular in its own ways, much the same as the Elise and I'm sure the Elan will be. I can't wait to drive my Elan for the first time, hopefully around a year from now!
