Two Elans were used in filming. The first was a white S2 DHC registered HNK 999C; the second was a blue S3 DHC registered DHC SJH 499D. The white S2 was used by a Lotus director after the series finished and subsequently dropped out of sight. The blue S3 was an exhibit at the Cars of the Stars Museum in Keswick, Cumbria, which closed in 2011; its current whereabouts is not known.

Emma clearly had a different ratio steering rack from the one I'm used to! :wink:

They seem to have missed out the scene at the gates in Trotters Bottom, where Emma is wearing next to nothing to add lightness.

I guess they only used the later coloured episodes for the mashup.
