JPS TEAM LOTUS ELAN PLUS 2

Hi All:

Just by chance I found the following picture that shows a Dodge Travco motorhome
Besides it you can see an Elan Plus2 parked.(seems to be blue)
I just wonder if it is the one that belonged to Ronnie Peterson.
Also Peter Warr in his recent book "My view from the pitwall" refers a huge shunt he had with one of these cars
He also referes the Team has a special modified one with AP electric clutch and a button on the gear level in order Ronnie guet used to the complicated Lotus 76 gearbox that used the same system...does anyone know if one of these car still survives today?
I would like to build on for me in 1/43 from a SMTS kit

I think someone has been trying to flog that motorhome recently, it's been on Ebay and PH - gotta love the 4 Lucas square 8's on the front, typical bit of Chunky bling (nicked off the production line doubtless) :lol:
