Lotus Elan

There is a moment....

...in the Elan as you apply the power in third gear, around 4000 RPM, in a sweeping right hand up hill turn where you can feel the left front wheel and suspension unloading just slightly from the weight and power transfer. You can feel it through the steering. You can feel it through the suspension. You can feel it through the seat. The car is telling me exactly what is happening in that moment and faithfully communicating the dynamics it is living.

I've drive that road 20+ times in other sports cars, and I've never felt that before.
