We managed to capture this video of the Lotus Elan‘s full colour digital instrument panel when we were at the Group Lotus headquarters earlier this week. It basically consists of a few LCD screens – one large one in the middle flanked by two smaller ones by the side.

The large central LCD shows a big rev counter that changes its orientation according to what mode you’re in flanked by various other readings such as fuel level and oil pressure. Right smack in the middle of the rev counter is a digital speedometer. I can’t really see what’s on the right smaller LCD panel but the one on the left seems to show what’s playing on the entertainment system – they look like album cover images.

If you take a look at the previously released concept images of the Elan, the right LCD panel shows the outline of a track, I presume this can also be used to show navigation instructions when you’re not on a track.
