Lotus Elan

Bit of an off topic for anyone who enjoys racing games, you can race and modify an Elan Sprint on Forza Motorsport on the Xbox console.

Great game and the Elan is represented well. :wink:

yeh theres an Elan in gran turismo 4 also that is quite a nice model. also any of you guys that are into the older stuff do a google on grandprix legends 2004 demo this gives you a selection of cars from the 1967 season including Jim's Lotus 49. theres only one track which is watkins glen but when you get the demo google gpl tracks and download them. the game has been out in ints original form since 1997 so there are loads of mods for it inc a 1965 car set with the mighty Lotus 33 and a 1969 carset with all the cars having the high wing arrangement. its the wrong time of year really this is a winter evening thing after you come in from the garage but I only recently came across it. also you can play online and a lotuselan.net GP would be quite fun :)

There's a load of Lotus related on-line racing simulation info here...


Including a very comprehensive Grand Prix Legends FAQ.

I've never been into computer games but yesterday my son sat me down at his Xbox and invited me to drive the Sprint he had 'garaged' just for me. It was quite fun tooling around a track in the Swiss Alps. Three laps later and the door was a bit bashed!

I was then treated to a drifting masterclass by my five year old grandson!

Anyone else driven the Forza ?lan, then?

Yes we got Forza III just after Christmas. I've got the Elan as well - shame its only Coupe not DHC. I've resisted the urge to upgrade it to 200 hp.

My son much prefers the Veyron for some reason. Still, doing the Norsdschliefe in a Range Rover is.....interesting.

Gamers around !?!
Earlier I made with the help of a german ingeneer a complete addon car to the GT Legend software ,
and since a few weeks, a friend of mine, Julien alias "CBR Vendredi 13" ranking on the top 100 of the french league made these tree skins...

Its the only game I can beat my son on. He has tried all the other cars against my elan and finally given up, and we now race Elan to Elan on it. Very fun.
