The Cortina is an actual Lotus one. Herself was always puzzled that after being at a red light, when she took off and was clear of the intersection, all the cars that were stopped with her were so far behind her. The thing was amazingly quick. To say naught of the driver's right foot.
I honestly thought it was an Opel GT. Sorry I'm not as versed on every foreign car ever made. Opel has the same type of flip up headlights and a strikingly similar front end
An Opel GT is an absolute shoat pig by comparison. Twice as heavy and much bigger. A nickname for the Elan the Brits liked to use was "twink." Or "Super Sprite." It weighs around 1500 pounds. Variations with engine builds can range from a stock 105 to over 200HP, depending on wallet depth. And there are a few good replacements for the rubber couplings on the IRS.
