Lotus Elan

Lotus came out with the Elan in 1989.

Like the MX-5 it had a 1.6 litre engine with a top speed a smidge over 120 MPH.

It cost more than the MX-5 so got outsold by it but it did have the awesome twin bulbed pop-up headlights from its Esprit big brother and has aged well.

Fun fact it was also manufactured in South Korea and badged as the KIA Elan from 1995.

Lancia Delta Intergrale 16V

1989 saw the iconic Lancia Delta Intergrale rally car and Sega Rally favourite get an update from the 1987 model and with it came wider wheels and a raised bonnet to accommodate the 16V engine which gave it an even more aggressive look.

The Lancia Delta Integrale 16V came with a top speed of 137 MPH and a 0-60 of 5.7 seconds which is not too shabby even today.


Its a legendary car but is it as desired as the last car?
