• Year: 1992
The original Elan was introduced in 1962 as a roadster, although an optional hardtop was offered in 1963 and a coupé version in 1965. The two-seat Lotus Elan replaced the elegant, but unreliable and expensive to produce, Lotus Elite. It was the first Lotus road car to use the, now famous, steel backbone sub-frame with a fibreglass body. The Elan embodied the Colin Chapman minimum weight design philosophy. It was technologically advanced with a Lotus-Ford twin-cam, 1558cc engine, four-wheel disc brakes and four-wheel independent suspension. The Elan +2 was introduced in 1967 with a longer wheelbase and two more rear seats. It was a fast and agile sporting coupé with very elegant lines. It combined the performance and reliability of the Elan Coupé with genuine 2+2 passenger comfort. With less than 1200 of these cars on the roads today, their relative rarity, beautiful lines, impressive performance and practicality are the main factors for the rising interest in these cars among collectors. This particular example was purchased by the vendor from the original owner almost 30 years ago. The vendor informs us that in 1989, he had the chassis replaced with a galvanised one; he also had t

Upon its launch in 1967, the Lotus Elan +2 fitted very snugly between British sports car manufacturers such as Marcos, TVR and major manufacturers such as Triumph and MG. The Elan +2 was a development and evolution from the original Elan of 1962 and saw a totally new closed coupé body designed to accommodate a couple of children or useful storage for shopping. The two Elans; the original still being produced alongside the +2, had many interchangeable parts except for the body; this was a benefit to the +2 as the mechanical parts had proven very reliable. The Lotus Elan +2 - as with the original - was also sold in kit form, but to get away from the heritage of kit cars, Lotus introduced an improved Elan a year later which was only available to buy factory built. The improvements were a more luxurious interior and fog lamps fitted under the front bumpers, and the vehicle was designated the Lotus Elan +2S. The next major change was in 1971 when a big valve engine was offered, resulting in the Lotus Elan +2 130S, with another option of a very attractive metal-flake roof paint job. This is probably the best race prepared Lotus Elan on the market. Literally tens of thousands of pounds ha

This lovely Elan has benefitted from a great deal of recent expenditure and is the desirable Special Equipment version. The car was owned by a classic car mechanic from 1982 to 2014. Three years ago he fully rebuilt the engine and fitted a new clutch, brake hoses, alloy petrol tank, stainless back box, brakes and master cylinders. Two years ago the car was retrimmed in leather and new carpets fitted. The galvanised chassis appears to be in excellent condition, and the car also benefits from a Webasto sunroof. The car has just received a high quality respray in pale blue. There is a full photographic record of this work on the detailed history file. It has also been fitted with solid driveshafts, new brake calipers, pads, kenlowe fan and K&N air filters. A great driving investment...

Not only that but has had just four owners from new and was supplied by London Sports Car Centre in Edgware to a J W Sutcliffe. We purchased the car from one of our existing clients who has owned Elans in various iterations for 30 years or so and was a running and usable car that was just starting to look a little bit tired. Currently undergoing restoration by ourselves, having undergone a total bare body restoration at a cost of over £16,000 (thus far) and is currently undergoing final prep. *Viewing strictly by appointment only*

This stunning Lotus Elan Plus 2 has been owned by one of our regular customers, a classic car collector based in Staffordshire. The Lotus has been driven over 175 miles to us performing superbly in poor weather conditions. The car coped with rush hour M1 traffic heading north and has been proven reliable, usable and a true delight to drive. The owner is now only parting with the car due to his plans to concentrate on a mainly Jaguar collection. The Elan was first registered on 29 th November 1968 but we do not have early history. We do know the car was taken off the road in 1996 and was purchased in 2004 needing a full restoration. The Lotus was then subject of a body off restoration that included a new Lotus galvanised chassis that was painted Black during the rebuild programme. The body was professionally re-sprayed in a low bake oven and the engine was stripped and rebuilt with new piston rings, bearings and seals. The cylinder head was treated to new guides and valves and the carburettors were professionally rebuilt. The gearbox and differential were stripped and rebuilt, the brakes were re-commissioned with new pistons and seals and a new servo fitted. New Spyder drive shafts

Lotus Elan S4/SE DHC, 1970. Last owner for 30 years! During his tenure the Elan has had a replacement galvanised chassis and a fully rebuilt engine by the well-known Miles Wilkins of Fibreglass Services. Miles has written the book on rebuilding the iconic Lotus Twin-Cam engine. Bills for over £12,000 from Fibreglass services for the full chassis and engine rebuild etc. etc.. Lots of MOT certificates going back to 1983 and they seem to point out that the Elan has done about 48,000 in total. The car has just been resprayed in original yellow and has a stunning glass-like finish. The car drives extremely well with a good strong engine and excellent chassis. Fully serviced and MOT’d.

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

Lotus Elan S4 1969. This is a very original Elan that we believe was dismantled by its first original owner for possible shipment abroad. This did not happen and the car remained in storage for 20 years. The car was then sold in 1990, finally reassembled and put back on the road in 2001. With the milometer showing 3,628 miles. It now reads 6,608. The car was repainted, due to scratches etc whilst in storage, by the last owner.
