Limited quantity of 50 Magazines
The Lotus Drivers Club magazine is sent to each of our members and then limited to just 50 copies
Welcome top issue 111 of Chicane. It is the Elise special issue and as I’m sure you can imagine, this magazine could have been 10 times as thick and we wouldn’t be able to cover everything we wanted to. That is the hardest part of being editor, deciding what not to include. Still I hope you enjoy what we have in this issue. On top of the main Elise feature we have an interview with former Lotus design chief, Julian Thompson and an interview with inspiration for the Elise name, Elisa Artioli.
We also take a look at the most significant Elise models to date as well as driving the latest Elise Sport 220. As always, Jim Grant has provided us with a thrilling read in the form of his Scottish Snippets. We also have reports on the North Coast 500 run, Wessex Tales and a member puts a spotlight on a very special Lotus dealer. Insight this time takes a look at the latest and most extreme cars to come from Hethel as well the return of the Lotus Driving Academy.
