J’adore la première phrase……..”vas y achète la!” Tout est bien dans ce film…..la couleur le bruit et l’odeur …….
I can’t get enough of these films. Capture the true relationship between a man and his car that I feel towards mine everyday. keep up the good work!
“The car was part of the history and will be part of me. ”
Thank you for filming such beautiful story for us.
I have own 1992 BMW 850 since 2002, now we have spend more than 15 years together. I can image the same feeling.
Beautifully told and lensed story of classic car hero Mssr. Brieuc, who is circling a classic Lotus around Paris with locked joints.
Good that you had the go-kart training!
Thank you Petrolicious for spreading the word of this truly gasoline booded enthusiast.
An amazing tale from a through and through petrolhead.
I don’t like these Lotus (and most british cars of this period), but one thing’s for sure Mr. Brieuc – You’re not an idiot! The fact is that, most wifes (as lovely as they are) just don’t get it :).
It’s all about the passion of owning a classic car and driving it!
All the best to you, and your journey to recovery!
PS: Petrolicious, you’ve been to Germany, France, Italy, Spain – what about Portugal? 🙂
“Je suis con, mais enfin j’aime ça”: Touched a nerve there, Brieuc. Chapeau!
Great Petrolicious-of-old feature, nicely done.

” The astonishing cornering power of this remarkable machine equals, and probably exceeds that of any production car we have tested!”
By the standards of its day there was nothing in its league. You haven’t got a clue!
Lotus became synonymous with Lots of Trouble, Usually Serious, but the early cars are obviously excellent. This one in particular (the Elan +2) is a cracker – room for four, looks like a two-seater coupe with superb engines. A true practical classic and this one comes with a fantastic story too.
A wonderful car . A touching story . Fantastic cinematography [ is there any better time to be in Paris than the night ? OK .. well maybe on a gently raining night ] with some pretty decent and appropriate background music to boot
Two thumbs up .. and to Mssr . Brieuc I say ;
Rock On – Drive On ( despite it all ) Remain Tasteful .. and please do Carry On
