1970 Lotus ElanReview
A 1970s Icon Of Design; Performs Well For A 38 Year Old; Handles Like A Dream. — A superb handling lightweight sports car. This Lotus is one of Colin Chapman's best. It is on its third chassis but was rebuilt several years ago with a replica 26R version. Fitted with a fibreglass shell racing seat & six point harness I use the car for trackdays, sprints & hillclimbs as well as using it on the road for a quick blast!
Pros: Handling, performance, looks
Cons: There is no way to get out of the car without looking a prat!
