Spot the difference

Or rather the similarities (design influences if you will) between the Ferrari 246 and Elise S1.  A point first mooted to me by Dean (SkyBlue) earlier this year and subsequently I saw this pic on the internet and was reminded of our conversation.

And then, on researching the subject of the S1's origins further, I've happened upon this interview with Julian Thompson posted on the website in September 2010:

Two beautiful sports cars then with clear evidence of design lineage. I wonder if there is any LDC member who actually owns (or has owned) both of them...

Mark,

that would be my perfect dream garage pair. Unfortunately I will never be able to afford to own a Dino though. Good photo all the same.

Could only dream of owning such an amazing car as the Dino - was in the market for a 308/328 about 13 years ago but buying one would have just about pauperised me... so I plumped for an Integrale.
