Independent Tyre Test - The Results

In the world of modern tyres it is common place to come across a tyre test. However in the world of classic tyres the investment never seems to be there to do a proper modern tyre test. However a German magazine in July 2016 conducted this modern tyre test using classic tyres. This classic tyre test has been translated from German to English. What is remarkable in this tyre test is quite how well the PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN36 classic tyre performed in the table at the end. The scores in this table are not scored in relationship to the other tyres in the test, so when a score of 1 is recorded, then that is a perfect score for a classic tyre or a modern tyre. It is wonderful to see that these classic PIRELLI CINTURATO ™ CN36 tyres can give such exemplary results.

Lotus Elan

History of the Lotus Elan

The Lotus Elan was first launched in October of 1962 at the London Motor Show. The car caused quite a stir and as a result eager would be customers signed on the dotted line to go on a waiting list to own there very own Lotus Elan. They waited until May of the following year, when the first Lotus Elan rolled off the production line, to actually receive there car. The car cost £1499.00 in complete form or for £1095 you could purchase the car in partial kit form. The Lotus Elan was based on a folded steel backbone chassis incorporating a lightweight fibreglass body shell. The car encompassed a 1558cc twin-cam engine which was a conversion of the new Ford Anglia engine. The Lotus Elan would later go on to have a power boost in the form of a 1596cc engine. The Lotus Elan offered outstanding road holding and driver pleasure without the harsh bumpy ride that was common on other two seater sports cars of the era. This was also true of the Series 2 Lotus Elan also.
