Lotus Elan

Lotus 25 / Lotus 26 bloodline

I posted some links to a 5 part article that I wrote for Via Retro on Lotus and in particular the Lotus 25 Grand Prix car.

As some folks will realise, it was the prototyping of the Lotus Elan "torsion box" chassis that tipped Colin Chapman into the development of the most revolutionary F1 of all time.

If you are interested, here is the final part of the story (the other parts are still up on Via Retro).

Happy reading.
