it is atleast nice that they say "Lotus Elan Sprint which is one of the most sought after sports cars of it's generation" nopw if they had said the type 26 was one of the most sought after they really would have my vote!

I think Ferrari had a similar problem with an after market body kit that resembled a 308?

I think the statement "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery" was coined by the imitator, not the imitated.

They have been doing them for years in Japan, they normally have the good grace to call it a EUNOS SPRINT. One of these had the cheek to flash me in my +2 last week near Bexhill, he obviously knew I had a sacriligeous zetec under the bonnet and would flash and wave back at just anyone.


Forget the copywright lawyers, why not go for libel regarding the following statement
To buy a Lotus Elan would cost from ?20,000 plus you would need to be prepared to break down almost every time you take it out. With this car you have the stunning looks but with sound japanese reliability and performance.
Kindest regards
