While searching for Elan photos I came across this on a German site www.scaleracing.de

Shame about the wheel arches on the "Jim Clark" 26r, never had those on a Team Lotus car; neither did 26r's have a bulge on the engine cover.

Am I becoming an anorak? :?

I love those 1/32nd unauthentic wheel arches but you're totally right about the bonnet bulge. And no, you are not an anorak according to my dictionary here in the 12th century USA.

Well, it would appear it is a late model S3 coupe (note roof and rear vent) not a 26R

My dictionary says anorak is a waterproof jacket, typically with a hood, of a kind originally used in polar regions.

It looks like a 1968 to 70 Stromberg S4 FHC with the vents and bonnet bulge. Jim Clarke was unfortunately dead by the time they came out.

Yes, I believe you are right, I was thrown by the round fenders (despite the modification).
