The excellent performance of the Elan was derived from the combination of its powerful engine and lightweight. Roadholding and agility also meant that high speeds could be maintained on corners. Gordon Murray, designer of the McLaren, reportedly said that his only disappointment with the McLaren F1 was that he could not give it the perfect steering of the Lotus Elan! This lovely British Sportscar has to be driven to appreciate the great driving experience.
