I had the 2nd '68 Elan +2, the Elite, the M100 and the Evora all at the same time
the Europa was the only one that was on its own........all the others have had at least one family member with them at any time........lol

Oh! I though he (she) who dies with the most Lotus wins? I’m not usually competitive but in this case I shall make an exception.

I’m only an amateur, 5.

I shall definitely stop when I get a type 14 Elite, maybe...

I must be the best owner as still on my one and only Lotus!

Getting very tempted by an early Evora as my daily but being held back by the need to put two kids in the back for school run and needing the drivers seat where i can get in the car let alone drive it.
'73 +2 130/5 RHD, now on the road and very slowly rolling though a "restoration"

Never heard of either model :D

Plus 2 x 3
Elite (type 75)...had a turbo which was nice :D

Now looking to swap my M100 for yet another Plus 2...it's a disease!
