By lack of home-made car reviews by TheRetromobilist (as I can't see anyone granting us an Elan to test at the moment, or is there anyone who's kind enough to do so?) we feature one hell of an interesting duel between the classis Lotus Elan and the brand-new Mazda MX-5 Super 20. Well, I say duel, it's more of a huge laudation to the Elan really. In addition to that, the guys from American magazine 'Car and Driver' have chosen an equally legendary track (Laguna Seca) to test these cars as well. Motoring journalist Sam Smith guides us through both cars with much passion and knowledge. Unsurprisingly, the concept MX-5 Super 20 (or any MX-5) was inspired by the Elan which is why his choice for these two cars and his opinions make so much sense. Make sure you watch it!
