Chassis # 264021 Engine # 2353 Very Original Throughout & Never Hit A Running & Driving Example With Few Needs Details In the 1960’s, technology such as fully independent suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and twin overhead cam engines combined with an aerodynamic fiberglass bodies were very rare attributes to find in road cars. These items coupled with lightweight materials were early in their development with scattered implementation of them by manufacturers. However, Lotus managed to engineer a car boasting all of these advancements. The Lotus Elan, a small, light, and simplistic sports car that was clever in design and performed marvelously on the road. It utilized an extremely rigid steel backbone frame which the extremely light fiberglass body was mounted to. A 1,558cc power plant, largely engineered by Ford, produced 106bhp which does not sound like much but in a car that narrowly weighs 1,500 pounds, makes the Elan a swift roadster. This progressive sports car was able to go toe to toe on the track with the hairy chested Corvettes, stunning the motoring world with its clever design and performance. The Elan was also utilized by the lovely Emma Peel in the British televisio

1967 Lotus Elan S3 coupe s/n 3616647 Light Blue with Black Interior The Lotus Elan was launched in October 1962 at the British International Motor Show at Earls Court, just as the sixties started swinging. Jaguar had launched the E-Type the previous year, while AC had the Cobra and Ferrari the GTO. These were big, powerful, and expensive machines. The Elan was very different, and typically Lotus – ultra modern, lightweight, nimble and tremendous fun. From arch enthusiast Jay Leno to Gordon Murray, designer of the McLaren F1, the accolades bestowed upon the gritty Elan typically call it “the greatest handling car of all time” or something equally grandiose in nature. We couldn’t agree more. In the same year that Lotus revolutionized racing car design with the monocoque 25, they also packed the Elan with technically innovative features like the first backbone tube chassis of any road car as well as a fiberglass body, four-wheel independent suspension, weight of 1500 lbs (670kg) and the new Lotus Twin Cam engine, produced by significantly modifying a Ford 116E block. The new unit yielded over 100 horsepower and provided endless entertainment for the featherweight Elan package. Right a

About this Lotus Elan Turbo First registered in the UK in 1990 this car was exported by its then owner to Singapore in 2001 and then repatriated back to the UK in 2009 and would appear to have been kept SORN until August 2012. This is the quick and exciting turbocharged model Rated at 0-60 in 6.5 seconds when new. In its traditional Lotus colour scheme this clean 162bhp Elan is now an iconic car in its own right – along with the MG RV8, perhaps the last true British-made sports car and certainly a fitting modern example of the Colin Chapman legacy. With soft-top in good order and riding on very clean alloy road wheels it drives very well and handles like a dream. With good examples of early Elans getting harder to track down, this example has a large file of invoices showing much money spent on maintenance at home and abroad and it shapes up as an excellent opportunity to experience top-down, turbocharged motoring for a modest outlay.
For sale is this fully restored Elan S3. The S3 is said by many to be the best looking of the Elans! It’s fitted with a syder chassis with twin wishbone rear suspension and CV joint driveshaft’s. A fully reconditioned big valve twin cam engine running on brand new Weber carbs and electronic ignition. Side impact bar kit with inertia seatbelts have been fitted for extra safety, along with full retrim, wiring loom, electric motor headlamp conversion. This is a beautiful looking little car for anybody looking for a Lotus Elan. Viewing is highly recommended, for anymore information please call 07754553414 Emails may take longer to respond too.

--Cirrus White and Black Interior, 104,950 original miles, 4-speed manual transmission, Chassis #50/1781, Special Edition Engine 119753. The Lotus Elan Plus 2 as envisioned by Colin Chapman (Founder of Lotus Cars) was to have the following basic design concept… “it must combine the very best features of the Elan Coupe with reliability and yet be able to carry two adults and two children on a long holiday-in comfort” and that’s just what they created! The Elan 1558cc Twin-Can engine produces 118bhp at 6250 rpm and combined with its light weight make for an extremely exhilarating sports car. This Elan Plus 2 spent the first 40 years of its life in California with only 3 owners. The current owner has stored the Elan in climate controlled secure storage for much of the last 6 years. According to ownership history and discussions, the Elan received a repaint in the 70’s. Today the paint is fair and a respray would be welcomed. Body panels are straight, chrome is good, headlight covers work and fit properly and all glass is good. Interior is very original and in nice condition, the center console was recovered and dash is nice, but shows some age cracking. As pictured, the headliner is g
