I first became aware of the 11 when George Bishop, a well-known journalist in the 70s, bought one and wrote about it in Car magazine. The things that struck me was that it had an A-series engine and the doors hinged at the bottom! I fell in love with its shape, though. Gorgeous-looking cars..

Thanks for posting the videos.

I'm not sure but I think that would have been a Westfield Repo as I think that had an A series engine, I think the Lotus had either the Coventry Climax or a Ford 1300cc. I think that's right but don't quote me on it!! That said the Westys X1 make more money than my Esprit!

I could well be wrong about the engine as the article was written before Westfield made Eleven replicas. It definitely was a genuine article.
