Does anyone here get this magazine? It's a bit pricey for a US subscription (print edition) and is there
enough 'heritage' content to be worthwhile?

Yes I get it when I pass through the uk... good articles, great pics... first marque specific mag I have ever seen for Lotus... deserves support... believe there is a lower price digital subscription

I have both digital and print. Personally I prefer to read magazines with the document in my hand, but I travel a lot and having the digital edition allows me to finish reading the latest issue or easily refer back to an article in a previous issue.

The magazine is very diverse regarding Lotus related content. It mixes historical road car and race car along with current insights and information. It’s not a technical magazine (how to rebuild Weber carbs).

Well written, lots of photos, always has interesting articles that are worth reading. They are very interested in hearing from readers who own Lotus cars, so if you have some good photos and are articulate in your writing style, this is your opportunity for 15 minutes of fame (I have been published twice so far).

Yes, it’s a bit expensive but there are no other Lotus magazines on the market. So from my perspective it’s priceless.

I'm thinking the same, Glen. Thanks!

I get it and would observe that it is considerably more informative than the other single marque magazines I get.
There is a lot of useful Elan stuff but stuff on moderns, the Lotus bikes! and other interesting historical stuff.
