ah well - "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery" as they say...

I remember seeing one in the french alps a few years ago... the owner had gone mad with the Lotus stickers lol...

Considering they took inspiration from the Elan to make the MX5 I am ok with it really.

It's like those body-kit-Ferraris considering how much they sink into those things they could've bought the real thing sometimes!
It makes you wonder
