Lotus Elan S4 SE Fixed Head Coupe

The Lotus Elan was introduced by Colin Chapman in 1962 and epitomised Lotus core values of lightness and excellent handling. The Coupe version was introduced in 1965 and weighed just 680kgs and was powered by the then technologically advanced Lotus Twincam which gave 126bhp.
Combined with disc brakes all round and fully independent suspension, the car was quick from the off and it handled well too. All this lead to sales of over 17,000 units by the end of production in 1975.

This particular car was built in 1970 as a Series 4 Fixed Head Coupe. It is Lotus Yellow with black Interior. It has been restored over many years substantiated by a comprehensive history file including photographs. Work to date has included a complete re-spray, new bumpers and Halogen headlights, compete re-wiring and a new interior. The suspension has been rebuilt along with larger brake discs and callipers. The shut lines are very good in keeping with a car which has undergone such detailed restoration. 
It has had just 4 owners, is presented very well and most importantly, drives beautifully.

It has a letter of authenticity from Club Lotus.


Exterior - Overall in very nice condition with no blemishes to note.
