Lotus Elan S4 Black Badge Special Equipment Drop Head Coupe (DHC) 1.6 litre Sprint Colours with Sprint decals Built/Restored to Concurs Standard - you will really not find another like this. It is incredible, responsive, well balanced, it is great fun to drive - it sounds like an angry Harley and just wants to fly! The car is a rare example in barely used condition with just 31340 miles on the clock and having had just 3 owners since 1970. The third owner (my Mother) has never driven the car. Last year the car’s full nut and bolt restoration was completed. A labour of love, it took over 18 months and cost in excess of £20,000. As part of the restoration it has had a full engine rebuild and has only being driven 30 miles since. It's practically a brand new 47 year old car. We decided to keep the car as original as possible so any parts that could be were restored & reused. Any replacement parts were bought of quality and fitted to their original specification. It has been certified by Club Lotus - clublotus dot co dot uk The project was undertaken by eleven-engineering dot co dot uk Currently insured for £40,000. I have included some further details below; 1558 CC (1.6 litre) unleaded petrol, Drop Head Coupe (Convertible). Painted classic Lotus sprint colours with sprint decals. It has just had 3 owners in the 47 years since its manufacture. 34 of those years it sat unused in my Dads garage. The 3rd owner my Mum has never driven the car. The steering wheel features Colin Chapman’s signature (very rare) worth circa £1500 alone. As the car is a certified classic it is exempt from tax in the UK! Come May 2018 it also won't need an MOT (in the UK)! the DVLA are changing the law. The doors sit better than the originals did from manufacture, in fact in every way the car has been restored and now exceeds its original construction. We have included a kill-switch on the vehicle for security along with an electric ignition. The only items missing from factory are the extra badges (the originals will be included) but have not been added to the body as they don’t look in great shape). Replacement badges can be found online but we have chosen to not pursue these. The car is an incredibly rare example of a Lotus Elan S4 in sprint colours. For a 46 year old car, it is now pretty much a brand new car, you will not find another in this condition. It passed its first MOT after restoration with a clean bill of health. Currently declared SORN it will need a new MOT but I can have that done for you if you wish, it will pass 100% no problems. The mechanic who completed the restoration has suggested that 400/500 miles should be put on the clock in-order to ‘bed it in’ – he has said he will then re-tune the car - he will do this for me or for the buyer free of charge. We have chosen not to drive the car but to leave this to the new owner.

- Light blue with black interior, replacement Spyder chassis - c._6,000 spent on recommissioning in 2010 with Bateman's Performance Engineering - Recent hood, stored last four years, 44,981 miles recorded The original Ron Hickman-penned Elan looks as fresh as when it burst onto the roads in 1962 and, thanks to its lightweight, stiff backbone chassis, fully independent wishbone suspension and potent twin-cam powerplant, will still show a clean pair of heels to many a far younger rival. The vendor informs us this light blue example has enjoyed just three previous owners since being first registered in February 1968. The second owner was a stepson of renowned Lotus racer Adam Currie. A replacement Spyder chassis was fitted in 1988 whilst some _6,000 was invested in recommissioning works in 2010 with specialists Bateman's Performance Engineering including new CV drive shafts, fuel tank, ignition, brakes etc. A recent hood has also been fitted and a tonneau cover is included. In storage for the past four years, PXE 468F would now benefit from attention to the cosmetics and in our opinion would make an ideal winter project.
We are pleased to offer for sale this immaculate Lotus Carlton only 4500 miles from new! The Lotus Carlton is a legend and the kind of car that comes along once in a generation. At a time when really fast four-door saloons were the preserve of BMW and Mercedes, this Vauxhall (Opel) derived super saloon arrived on the scene demolishing the opposition. Oddly, it wasn't its huge performance or masculine good looks that created the most fuss but the fact that the Daily Mail was so outraged by its stated top speed of 176mph, that it declared it too fast for British roads. Of course, the Lotus Carlton - or Type 104 to Lotus aficionados - was nothing of the sort, and although it shared its major components with a mainstream executive car, its level of development across every aspect of automotive dynamics had resulted in a truly special performance car. It was powered by a twin-turbo version of the venerable straight-six used in the Senator, which developed a remarkable 377bhp. To achieve that figure, Lotus had put a lot of work into the 3.6-litre power unit, uprating and strengthening the bottom end, porting the 24-valve cylinder head (from the Carlton GSI), and fitting forged 'slipper pistons' made by Mahle atop new Lotus-designed connecting rods tied to a counterweighted, forged steel crankshaft. The gearbox was the same six-speeder used in the Corvette ZR-1, the only transmission in GM's parts bin, capable of handling the car's monster torque. AP Group-C derived brakes - four-pot calipers with 330mm ventilated discs at the front and two-pot at the rear – sat behind specially developed Goodyear tyres.
Purity is a fragile and vulnerable thing and in August 1996, the revolutionary new Lotus Elise seemed to ooze purity from every extruded anodised aluminium and epoxy resin crevice, with nothing superfluous subtracting from the essence of this truly minimalist, focused little sports car. Although 'beautiful to behold' it certainly was, the time-honoured relationship between 'form and function' was clearly evident in the way it went and handled with its lightweight chassis-tub at 731kg failing to daunt the enthusiasm of the mid-mounted, 1.8-litre K-series engine, and its 118bhp was enough for a 0-60mph time in the low sixes allied to decent pull in the higher ratios. Clothed in two-piece 'clamshell' fibreglass bodywork, the featherweight two-door also featured all round double-wishbone independent coil-over suspension, rack and pinion steering, four-wheel ventilated disc brakes, and a five-speed gearbox. Designer Julian Thomson and engineer Richard Rackham were keen to create a car with something of a motorcycle’s feel, and they undoubtedly succeeded, as is evident as much as in the aluminium-and-rubber interior and neat little Stack instrument panel, as in the car's dynamic intimacy with the road, the wind, and the weather. The Elise was a reaction to the corpulent world of leather, luxury, and levers becoming increasingly evident in Lotus road cars, and was an attempt to recreate Colin Chapman’s early principles before he abandoned them in a move upmarket. The early cars were followed in 2002 by the Series 2 and any number of special models with various engine options and greater levels of creature comfort and they're all great, but the simpler, more demure Series 1 still defines the breed.

This excellent driving Lotus Elan Plus Two has been with a classic car enthusiast who lives in our local village (West Knapton) for the past six years. We’ve seen the car being driven out over summer months and it’s always proven totally reliable. Over the six years it has been serviced by a local Jaguar specialist and has cost very little maintain. The Elan has just covered a few hundred miles per year during recent ownership and has done around 7000 miles since complete rebuild between 2003-2008. The car was subject of a five year rebuild having spent eighteen years off the road. The car was rebuilt on a brand new Spyder chassis and still retains its original engine and gearbox which have both been rebuilt. For reliability, a Burton Cartridge water pump was fitted along with QED pistons, electronic ignition, high torque starter and in improved radiator with electric fan. The Lotus was fully re-wired with two new looms to accept modern fuses and relays, a new alternator fitted and a very expensive stainless steel manifold was handmade and fitted. The Lotus was also treated to new galvanised inner sills, Sue Miller solid drive shafts and Tony Thompson Racing adjustable front suspen
The Lotus Elise was the ultimate handling, rear-wheel drive, mid-engine roadster at its launch in September 1996. In 2002 the series 2 was launched following a change in regulations relating to crash sustainability. The series 2 offers a Toyota 1.8 litre engine with a Yamaha designed twin-cam head producing 134 bhp, which in turn offered staging performance, with a 0-60mph in just under 5.8 seconds and onto 128 mph. Hofmann’s are well known in the Lotus world for our continued success in the racing of Elise, Exige and Europa race cars and it is with this in mind that we have actively been seeking to find excellent examples to sell. With our extensive knowledge of Lotus cars we understand the difference between a lovely original example and a track day tool and we are pleased to be able to offer the former. The Lotus Elise S offered here at Hofmann’s is finished in Silver metallic with Grey interior trim. This 2008 “08 plate” car has covered mere 22,609 miles and boasts a comprehensive service history, the last of which has just been completed by ourselves. Including such specification highlights as: Alloy wheels, Electric windows, Air conditioning, Carpets, Cd player with BlueTooth
