Lotus Books and Repair Manuals
Lotus Elan and SE 1989-1992
Following the death of Colin Chapman the Lotus company
was purchased by General Motors in late 1985. The new
compact sports car was intended to take Lotus back into the
market for affordable models. It was powered by an Isuzu
DOHC engine. When announced in 1989 there was no doubt
that it was a winner. Unfortunately the economic boom was
followed by a deep recession and the car did not sell well.
Within three years it was all over and the Elan was withdrawn
from production. This is a book of contemporary road tests,
technical and specification data, driver's impressions, and
buying second-hand.

Lotus the Early Years
Lotus The Early Years tells the story of what might be called
the amateur years of Lotus, before Colin Chapman and Mike
Costin gave uptheir day jobs and worked for Lotus full time.
Colin relied on enthusiasts for motor sport who were attracted
to him partly because of his charm, but mainly because he
was so obviously going places and made things happen very
fast. This is their story, told by as many of them who are still
around 50 years later, based very much or records kept by
the Allen brothers, and the daily diary kept by the author at
the time.That they should have created a car that beat the
world leaders in the1500cc Class seemed astonishing at the
time, but subsequent history showed that these humble
beginnings were based on an ability and drive which took
Colin to the top.
