some of us know of the importance of the elan's chassis (20kg) and the intelligent symbiosis of the monocoque (instead of tubular) ............. H O W E V E R even this "means of transportation" was just the bodywork and suspension which was chosen to take an elan from A to B ----- the main component of this car, CALLED the HEART, and called LOTUS Twin Cam acan also be found in many real racing cars can also be powered by anything else, but it moves heartless --------------- i'm a purist and 1/2 of this car is the sound!!

I imagine what you are inferring is that -

An Elan's not an Elan if it ain't got a Twink? If it ain't got a Twink it don't mean a fing?
