I think you could lie on the nose and wrap your arms round it for a big hug. I mean, I know it's a ruffty tuffty race car and all that, but it does look sooo cute in that baby blue colour...

It looked great on display at the Phillip Island Historic s especially next to the GT3 Esprit. The Elfin Mono was Elfin's local version of the Lotus 25 concept, and looks just a good maybe even better as with a Lotus twin cam it has even more "Lotusness" (is that a word?) than a 25 with a Coventry Climax engine :D

Thanks guys - I agree with you, but I?m a teensy bit biased!!

The question has been asked as to whether the car was a Lotus 27 by a died in the wool Lotus open wheeler aficionado!

I?d love to have a good look at both a 25 & a 27 one day!
