Stunning British Classic
(20th April 2012) 1991 Lotus Elan Petrol Manual Convertible by Nick Wolsey
The joy of open top motoring in a stylish British Classic. Very comperable to an MX5 but with much better panache, and the values are going up as a rare classic. The Isuzu engine is a wonder, very reliable, very smooth at low power, and savage at high revs. The handling is the Lotus part, like a go-cart. It has the usual Lotus character with some quirks like a leaky soft-top and poor handbrake, but all easy to live with.
