The Nardi Steering wheel..........

Postby simonbuk » Tue 29.08.2017, 10:25

What is the Nardi steering wheel ? Is this fitted to the S2 as standard ? I know there are many as its an aftermarket brand but was there one specifically for the M100 in limited numbers ?

Yes .
Was part of the option package not the later Esprits and S2 elans .
It is surprising how may S2's carry the standard wheel though .

Theelanman you are correct .
And the last ebay sold S2 wheel did indeed go for just over £450

The Nardi is the most fun upgrade I've done to my Elan SE. The steering feels so much better than the standard steering wheel. :burnout:

So what is so different about a Nardi wheel vs OEM ? And what's so special ? And why does it justify a £450 price tag when it does virtually the same as mine ie turn he wheels in the direction you want ?

It's a lot nicer to look at and smaller. Feels more sporty.

Smaller than the non SIR SE one? From here I would have said they look pretty similar in size?! (but I have never seen a Nardi one so ...)

I think it will but you will need to fit a boss or a adapter kit I am sure someone here has fitted one to a Elan?
