Video: Harry Metcalfe's Lotus Elan Sprint
evo boss Harry Metcalfe introduces us to his classic Lotus Elan Sprint sports car on video
evo's editorial director Harry Metcalfe introduces us to his sweet little Lotus Elan on video. The 1960s soft-top ranked as our sixth favourite driver's car ever back in 2009 (though Harry was on the voting panel...) and its back-to-basics modest power but light weight approach has been the blueprint for all manner of fun cars since, Mazda MX-5 and Lotus's own Elise included. Here he tells us why he owns one, and why it's so special, before taking us out for a spin.
