  1. Hi I work on motoring TV shows such as For The Love of Cars. I'm currently working on a new C4 series, one episode of which is concentrating on an M100 Elan. We need a car for our very famous presenters to drive gently for some filming at a track in the south of England, probably Goodwood, on July the 24th. If you own an M100 Elan, pref a turbo, please call me on 07740 463196 or email me on [email protected] This is a genuine advert please google my name to see that I do work ion this field. I look forward to hearing from enthusiastic M100 owners keen to rai
  2. I have driven a V8 actually, on road and track - the press car Lotus had at the time, loved it but could not contemplate owning one. I had to be 'inserted', which took some time, and had to drive it in my racing boots because normal shoes were just too wide to delineate the pedals. Seeing as I can hardly walk in my race boots because they squash my toes so much it would not make a pleasant form of actual transport.

I don't have a Lotus sadly - I'm 6ft 4', but my everyday car is an MGB with a Fiat 2.0-litre twincam in it, an SD1 back axle and a Watts-link so I guess I qualify as an enthusiast in my non working life... Please explain the post above - MJK via Kimbers?. I'm guessing this is Mike Kimberley in some way?
  5. Thanks Mike and if that is the case then so be it but I thought it worth a try. John
  6. Yes but does anyone know anything about its history after it was a Lotus PR/press car?
  7. Corgi models are attempting to find the owner of a specific Lotus Esprit S2. Chassis number: 400G Number plate: YVG789S It was originally painted gold. However, it is now believed to be painted red and registered YKO 48S. If you have any information about this car's whereabouts please contact: [email protected] or 07740 463196 Corgi's policy is include the history of the real car on which the model is based on a card in the model's box. This car was used by CAR magazine for a feature, and now by Corgi as the basis for a model, so Corgi are keen to find out about its late
