Lotus Elan

Robinshaw & Ross Book(s)

As recommended on this forum I recently picked up a copy of R&R's yellow covered "The original Lotus Elan 1962-1973" from eBay in the UK for GBP62. Not bad since they were GBP90 & up at Castle Donnington in August.

Now I see another book by R&R "Authentic Lotus Elan & Plus 2 1962 - 1974" which has a green cover. How does it differ from the Yellow covered tome? Is there any additional material on the (baby :twisted: ) Elan? or just the addition of the Plus2?

Pretty much just the plus 2 bits are added, but worth buying for that as it has a great writeup by Ron Hickman about the design of the Plus 2, and getting it into production against all odds...i.e., Colin Chapman!
