Jim Clark famously drove his Elan from home in Duns on the Scottish borders to Cheshunt in Hertfordshire. We retraced his commute in an Elise Sport 240 Final Edition to celebrate the driver and give the Elise a decent send-off. Jack Wood has the story in Issue 24.
Richard Thorn spent years painstakingly restoring his Elan Plus 2 from wreck to show-stopper. Emma Woodcock met him to find out how he tackled the job.
David and Susan Shaw have covered a staggering 276,000 miles their Elise Sport 135, and more recently added a Cup 250 to their collection which is used just as hard. We caught up with them to see what life is like with a high mileage Elise and why they still love the cars after all those miles.
The Type 49 wasn’t just a legendary Lotus but an iconic grand prix car full stop. Richard Heseltine tells the story of a racing car that came about by chance.
This Elite is used just as Lotus intended – as a long-distance grand tourer. We meet the owner to find out how he gets the most from the 1970s GT car.
