  • 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:- Offered for sale at a price considerably lower than the cost of build up. Packing, shipping, air freight economically priced and arranged to your door.

  • This stunning ‘+2S' was built in February 1973 and delivered on 30th April to Plough Motors Ltd, Stonehouse, Gloucestershire. The Lotus Classic Certificate of Vehicle Provenance in the history file shows that the car was destined to be their dealer demonstrator and was originally delivered in Cirrus White (Lotus paint code: LO4) with a silver roof. A handful of MoT certificates from C.B. Munks (Motor Engineers) Ltd of Hucknall, Nottinghamshire in the 1980s suggest that the car resided in the Midlands for a time, but for how long it is unknown.

  • The Lotus Elan started life in the early Sixties as the replacement for the Elite. There were effectively 5 series in the Elan with the Sprint being the last evolution from 1971 to 1973. The Sprint is often mistaken for an S4, however they are quite different cars and the Sprint in particular is proving to be the most collectible. The car we offer for sale is an early Sprint which features some items that cross over between the Series 4 and Sprint models which was not unusual for the time. Items such as the bonnet bulge and silver wheels were used until stock ran out from the previous model. This car is a genuine two owner vehicle and has a large history file from both owners including the original hand book and MOT form from its life in the UK. This beautiful example is also sporting the original interior that looks and feels new, a true time warp classic. With the handling of a supercar, plenty of positive feedback through the steering and an engine note to puts a smile on your face, this Lotus Elan Sprint is the perfect addition to your garage.

  • To be OFFERED AT AUCTION at Auction Americas Fort Lauderdale event, March 27-29, 2015. Estimate:$ 45,000 - $ 65,000 Introduced in 1962, the Lotus Elan was an innovative sports car with unconventional construction. A fiberglass body over a steel backbone frame, it used a Ford Cortina engine converted to dual-overhead-cam configuration. Four-wheel disc brakes and four-wheel independent suspension were other forward-looking features. With an ultra-light curb weight of barely 1,500 pounds, it was competitive with Corvettes in sports car racing. The American public became familiarized with the car when viewing the popular television show, The Avengers. Emma Peel (played by Diana Rigg), regularly drove her Elan while assisting John Steed (Patrick Macnee) in their espionage clashes against evil. Mrs. Peel was intelligent, assertive and immensely stylish; the sporty Lotus Elan was a perfect match to showcase her independence and vitality. This particular 1972 Lotus Elan Sprint drophead is reported to be correct in specifications for one of the approximately 150 Elan Sprints imported to the United States. The Elan was sold new and always remained in Southern California, documented by extensive records going back to its 1,000 mile service at Hollywood Sports Cars. This is a remarkably original car, still wearing its original Colorado Orange paint though the white portion has been repainted. The Lotus retains it's original black interior as well. The Lotus is reported to have never been damaged or torn apart, and due to its SoCal life and good stewardship, has never had rust. Powered by a 1,577-cc inline DOHC big valve four-cylinder engine that is paired to a four-speed manual transmission; the Elan has always been maintained as needed, with the engine rebuilt at 90,000 miles, and within the last 500 miles, has benefitted from a new Stayfast by Haartz convertible top and boot, a new (and correct) wood dash of similar high quality, full professional carburetor rebuild, new stainless steel exhaust, a complete suspension rebuild including new upgraded Rotoflex couplings, four new Spax adjustable shock absorbers, as well as bushings, tie rod ends, plus numerous other components. The car is accompanied by the original books, tools, jack kit and spare. Its easy to forget how remarkable the Elan was in its day, a genre that has since been thoroughly civilized by the Mazda Miata. This is a beautiful, strikingly original and rare U.S. Sprint that, with its extensive recent service, is extremely usable and drives great in keeping with its reputation as one of the best handling production cars of all time.

    ) Lotus Elan is the name of two convertible cars and one fixed head coupé produced by Lotus Cars. The original Type 26, 26R Racing version (of the S1 Elan), 36R Racing version (of the S2 Elan), 36 Fixed Head Coupe, 45 Drop Head Coupe, and the "Type 50" +2 Coupe, circa 1962 to 1975, are commonly known as the '60s Elans. The Type M100 from 1989 to 1995, is also commonly known as the 1990s Elan. 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 chassis with a fibreglass body. At 1,500 lb (680 kg), the Elan embodied the Colin Chapman minimum weight design philosophy. Initial versions of the Elan were also available as a kit to be assembled by the customer. The Elan was technologically advanced with a twin-cam 1558 cc engine, 4-wheel disc brakes, and 4-wheel independent suspension. The Lotus-Ford Twin Cam engine was based on Ford's Pre-Cross-flow 4-cylinder 1500 cc engine, with a Lotus-inspired Cosworth alloy twin-cam head. This Lotus-Ford

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*
