Lotus Elan

Scary Good

PostPost by: Ross Robbins » Wed Oct 27, 2010 3:50 pm

On MSN this morning there was a feature that claimed to show the scariest cars and trucks around. Now, I like a good send up as well as anyone so I took a look. While I found the usual lame attempt to make an automotive list topical by tying it to the Halloween holiday, I was surprised by one of the ten entries on the list which was quite a compliment. See for yourself:

Your grandmother could drift an Elan around a racetrack while fast asleep. .

Loved that sentence.

I enjoyed the read, many thanks for posting the link. I'm really looking forward to proving the point about the handling when I do my traditional Elise & Exige humbling trick at the Castle Combe track day, but this year it will be special with the Duratec Elan as well as the +2 zetec.

I loved J Lenos Monster, thats one cool car and right up my street!

Kindest regards
