CAR OF THE WEEK

THINK LOTUS Elan and you think Emma Peel and the swinging Sixties. Many forget that the Elan was revived in 1990 as a thoroughly modern sports car - composite plastic body, brilliant handling, effortless performance, all the Lotus magic. A Japanese Isuzu turbocharged engine meant it wouldn't break down either. Demand is strong - a Lotus hardly depreciates - not surprising as only 3,855 were built. Respected Lotus specialist Paul Matty, south of Birmingham has a '92 model for just pounds 12,950. Call 01527 835656 for details.
