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

Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 The Lotus Elan was Britain’s preeminent 1960’s sports car. The genius that was Colin Chapman, aided by a talented small team of designers, notably Ron Hickman, had conceived the Elan in 1962 as a replacement for the Elite. Produced from 1971 to 1973, the Elan Sprint was introduced to boost flagging sales. The new Sprint justified its name thanks to a substantial boost in engine power. A big-valve head with high-lift cams and increased compression ratio lifted output to 126bhp. The imaginatively designed backbone chassis, brilliant suspension and sparkling twin cam engine, allied to a pretty body, combined to make a winning car, successful not only amongst the discerning motoring public, but also on the track. This 1971 Elan Sprint was ordered new by Mr John Sargent, a farmer from Farnham in Surrey. Mr Sargent attended the launch of the Sprint at the 1970 Earls Court Motor Show and ordered the Elan off the Lotus stand with the following specification. Special order monotone "Bahama Yellow" L10, silver wheels and chrome wheel trims, silver bumpers, electric windows, optional air horns & tonneau cover and no radio. Chassis 0283G was thus one

***UPDATE 03/08/2017*** Upon consideration, for a quicker sale we have reduced the price. Unfortunately we need the space and our investment back. Sensible offers will be considered. ***LISTING*** 1970 Lotus Elan S4 Special Equipment Black Badge Colin Chapman signature edition in Sprint colours. £20,000+ nut & bolt restoration to concurs standard! The project took the best part of 2 years to complete. Started in September 2014 the project was finished in September 2016. Painted in the classic Lotus sprint colours with sprint decals. 31340 miles on the clock (full engine rebuild). However that might as well say 30 miles on the clock as the engine along with the rest of the car has had a full nut & bolt restoration costing in excess of £20,000. It has just had 3 owners in the 47 years since its creation. 34 of those years it sat unused in my Dad's garage. The 3rd owner my Mum has never driven the car. We have kept everything as original as possible in order to restore this seminal British sports vehicle to it's former glory. It was rated 6th out of 10 in the 1971 best sports cars that year and competition was fierce. The steering wheel features Colin Chapman’s signature & the Lotus has been certified by Club Lotus UK. www.clublotus.co.uk. As the car is a certified classic it is exempt from tax in the UK. 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. The car has an electric ignition & extra security features. 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 I 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 almost brand new, you will not find another in this condition and its restoration has been a labour of love. It is great fun to drive, you FEEL like you are driving. It is very responsive, well balanced & it just wants to fly! The restoration has been complete to an exceptional concurs standard, simply put the rebuild has put it in better shape than now that when it was originally sold as back in 1970. It passed its first MOT after restoration with a clean bill of health. The car has only been driven home since that day (30 miles) and it has sat under a thick dust sheet securely locked away. 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 if it needs it. We have chosen not to drive the car but to leave this to the new owner. http://www.eleven-engineering.co.uk/ As part of the sale, the mechanic has agreed to tune it up once the 400/500 miles have been put on the clock.
Sunburst Yellow with black interior and soft-top. Chassis No.113, one of the oldest surviving examples. Current owner for 35 years. The subject of a meticulous restoration 15 years ago with a new steel chassis, original cylinder head rebuilt with big valves and other recommended engine modifications. Superb throughout. £49,995
The Lotus M100 Elan, launched in August 1989, was a convertible sports car designed by Lotus, with a reliable Japanese engine and manual transmission supplied by Isuzu, and built with the development and testing resources of General Motors. ;The M100 Elan's cornering performance was undeniable (on release the Elan was described by Autocar magazine as "the quickest point to point car available").;This Lotus has undergone a full body and interior restoration (with photographic record). The car benefits from extensive history with 4 former keepers. Murrays of Edinburgh looked after this car in its formative years with services being carried out on schedule up to 75000 miles.

--Cirrus White and Black Interior, Black carpeting and Black convertible top, 40,554 original miles, 4-Speed manual transmission, Collector owned. The “Special equipment” Elan featured a 115 bhp high lift cam version 1,558 twin overhead camshaft unit, modified carburetors, new chokes and jets and four branch exhaust. The Lotus-Ford semi close ratio gearbox gave recommended change up speeds of 1st 43mph, 2nd 60mph and 3rd 85mph with acceleration 0-60mph in 6.8 seconds and a maximum speed of 120mph with a suggested touring consumption of 26mpg! During the 1965/1966 model years the standard chassis fitments included servo assisted brakes, Lotus knock-on wheels, revised shock absorbers for improved high speed handling and radial high speed tires. This particular 1966 Lotus Elan S3 “Special Equipment” was purchased from its first owner in 1969 with 2,000 miles on the odometer at the time. The Elan S3 was then carefully maintained and used seasonally as the owner’s prized possession for 45 years until he decided to sell in 2014 to another Lotus collector and enthusiast. This Elan is highly original and can only be described as a survivor with undoubtedly one of the more special examples
