Elise GT1


Esprit GT1


Esprit X180-R (street car, and similar to my SE)


But I really started paying attention to Lotus again in 1995 when I saw this (only the one with the blonde)


then I really wanted the Motorsport (before the Exige was announced) due to this picture!

Think I've always been very partial to the Elan compadre!

Elan, Europa, 7 in no particular order.
Owned two of 'em... the last a '74 with those crazy window frames that looked rather retarded with the top down. Still leaked around them when it rained. :eek:

Loved driving those little bastards. You could dive into a corner and brake so much later than almost any other car on the planet.

Elise GT1, because it's just the baddest Lotus ever! :bow:

The Elite is certainly the classic compadre!

I have to say I'm still partial to the Esprit (Stevens body). That is what an exotic should look like.
But that Stevens-styled Espirit rocks it so good.




:D

This statement just may be the clincher compadre!

Original Elan. Everything a sports car should be, and nothing it shouldn't.
Owned two of the little bastards and I can honestly say that I've never had more fun in a Lotus. :up:

Kick myself now and again for not hanging on to one. Probably would have preferred that under the tarp in my garage rather than my 50-year-old Austin-Healy.


:D

I was 15 when I first saw an Eleven, and thought it was gorgeous. I still do, together with the 15 and 17.
