Car magazine September 1978

Recommended Posts

"The Lotus Elite is a state-of-the-art car. Superbly trimmed and made, the interior finish easily matching the paintwork, it is now a world-standard car. Stretch the imagination and and it can be a four-seater with some luggage accommodation. Merc and Gamma are vastly better-off in this respect. But  primarily it is a wonderful car to drive. Performance is excellent, the suspension a yardstick, the handling a candidate for canonisation. Although not exactly underpriced, we believe that the Elite is now as underrated as icebergs were to the Titanic . It is the best of the trio and as deserving of laurels as any we know." 

(From Giant Test with Merc 230C and Lancia Gamma coupe Sept 1978).
