1969 Lotus Elan S4 Roadster s/n L69459515 Norfolk Mustard with Black Leather The Lotus Elan first appeared in October 1962 at the British International Motor Show at Earls Court. Jaguar had launched the E-Type the previous year, AC was offering the Cobra, and Ferrari the GTO. Against these big, powerful, and expensive machines, the lightweight and nimble Elan offered something very different, and typically Lotus: ultra modern, simplistic in design, and tremendous fun. Lotus packed the Elan with innovative technical features including a fiberglass body draped over the first backbone chassis of any road car and four-wheel independent suspension. Lotus would later revolutionize racing with their monocoque 25, further enhancing Lotus’ racing lineage. The 1500 lbs (670kg) Elan powered by the new Lotus Twin Cam engine delivered over 100 horsepower, providing endless entertainment for drivers of this featherweight roadster. The new Elan offered a clean body design with balanced proportions, hideaway headlights, and a beguilingly low profile. Customers swarmed for the reasonably priced Elan, proving to be a welcome replacement to the fragile, expensive-to-build Elite, becoming Lotus’s bigg

Graham Hill. It is often quoted that Graham Hill was not a naturally talented driver, although with two Grand Prix Championships, an Indianapolis 500 win and victory at the Le Mans 24 Hours, what do you need to do to be talented? In fairness, Hill only learnt to drive when he was twenty four years of age. No matter, by the time he was twenty six, he began his racing career and three years later he was on the grid for the 1958 Monaco Grand Prix in a Lotus 12. In fact, Monaco really belonged to Hill with him winning there five times. His first championship win came in 1962 in a BRM with his second following in 1968 whilst with Lotus. Hill was always easily recognised whilst racing, by his distinctive racing helmet that carried the London Rowing Club's cap design - dark blue with oar shaped tabs; a design his son Damon carried into his racing career. Tragically, Graham Hill was killed in his Piper Aztec along with five other members of his Embassy Hill Racing Team in 1975, shortly after retiring from motor racing. Graham Hill will be remembered for many things but perhaps mostly as being a charming, tall, elegant, mustached, witty and well spoken Englishman and the only racing driver

1969 Lotus Elan S4 Special Equipment FHC with 26R and other modifications An S4 with some provenance in Scottish Motorsports circles, this Elan was supplied new by the Lotus factory to Dicksons of Perth. In the hands of a Dundee based owner the Elan is understood to have had considerable period competition history mostly in hill-climb and sprint events. A complete rebuild of the car was first contemplated around 2002 and many new parts were purchased then but the project never quite got off the ground. The Elan and its new parts were subsequently acquired by motorsports and restorations specialists, Classic Autosports, who undertook a ground up restoration of the car (concluded in the spring of 2009). The principal features of the car and the detail of that restoration (photographic record available) are as follows:- Complete rebuild around new galvanised Spydersport chassis New suspension parts nickle plated Spydersport upper wishbones replacing standard McPherson struts at rear New Elan coil over shocks with adjustable platforms ( spare set of brand new Spydersport springs may be available with the car) Complete bodywork strip-down to repair all glassfibre imperfections followed
