Brand new from Team Lotus Classics Lotus Elan wood rim steering wheel.

Excellent brand new on car two weeks before I found an original leather wrapped one. Really is as new. Beautiful wheel apparently still made by Springall.
Paid 605GBP plus shipping. Would like to get a GOOD offer from a serious buyer. Jim 240-626-9032 in Maryland. Would prefer phone calls as opposed to message/texts. All "What's your best price?" will be callously ignored.

They're now made by Mark Davies Racing (incorporating Jacob Engineering), using mainly the same Springall tooling, and drawings. Springall were defunct some long time ago.
They consider their wheels to be a "continuation" wheel rather than a replica.

The Mark Jacobs site has a good write up on various Lotus steering wheels with some detailed manufacturing notes
