Lotus Elan S2 Model, the rare breed is here to gladden the purists

The Lotus dashing model Elan Coupe is worthy of its pure-bred status with its mixture of polished engineering features.  In the olden days, it was not an issue whether a vehicle was good or bad, and the only thing that mattered was it should have all the right features required in a car.  The specifications read like a double overhead camshaft in place of pushrods, not a big mute four barrel, but a carb choke/ cylinder even it was not able to ignite in a cold winter day. Minimum four gears were needed either in a crash box or all-Synchro. And, of course, a multi-tubular body frame!

We did not even know how the vehicle looked?  I had to be an independent suspension even it offers wilder handling and wilder camber changes. It was not even needed for them to seen or driven one to buy one. If it was offered in a fine print in the brochure’s last pages customers were eager to buy them.  Along came the MK II of Ford into the cruel grind of racing and it had big mute four barrels, pushrods and integrated sophisticated machinery ever put together except for the automatic transmission and the fiberglass chassis. After some time, we only cared about whether the car had the job done when it came to car design.

But when you look at the Lotus Elan specifications you have got all of them back. What a thoroughbred! Here is a car which would raise the sprit in every purist who reads the fine print before buying a vehicle. The car has every feature that is held as sacred. 


The chassis, however, would be the exception as nobody approved it. But does it matter anyway all these exotics? The answer would be –yes and a qualified one.  Within the limitations artificially imposed technology always makes the difference.
