Excel and SA history in Club Lotus News

Post by richardw »

This quarter’s issue is a bumper one for Excel owners. Brian Angus has written an article recalling the development of the Excel SA, and the regular Elite/Eclat/Excel section covers the development of the Eclat Excel Up to its launch in 1982, with never before seen (to my knowledge) pictures from Colin Spooner of the full-size mock up presented to Colin Chapman and the board for approval - which was given.

Cheers, Richard
