Description

Officially presented at the British Motor Show in London in October 1962, the Elan is the first Lotus to have been mass produced. It succeeded the Elite, without however adopting its fiberglass monocoque concept. The Elan is characterised by its steel backbone chassis, onto which an aerodynamically shaped fiberglass bodyshell was grafted, designed by Ron Hickman. When it came out, the Elan was a technologically innovative car, thanks to its chassis, its four-wheel independent suspension, its four-wheel disc brakes with dual-piston calipers and its pop-up headlamps. The very first Elans were equipped with a twin-cam Ford 1498cc engine, which was however swiftly replaced by a Ford 1558cc engine, surmounted by a cylinder head designed by Lotus, developing 105 hp. It is with this engine that the Elan was homologated in the GT category in May 1963. The first version of the Elan (called “Type 26 S1”) was produced in around 900 units from 1962 to 1964. All of them were roadsters (Drop Head), and a hard top became available from 1963. In 1964, Lotus launched the second version of the Elan (referred to as “Type 26 S2”), which was an improved S1: a veneer dash, larger front brake calipers, lockable glovebox, new rear lights and, as an option, centre-locked wheels. A little over 2,000 units of the S1 and S2 were produced.

The example we are offering for sale is an S1, completely rebuilt following FIA Appendix K specifications. The car is stripped to the absolute minimum to come very close to the homologated weight of 580 kg, and goes like a rocket with its race prepared 1598 cc Lotus Twin Cam engine. It has been a forerunner for many years in the Scandinavian Historic Championships, and is now ready for a new adventure. The engine has been completely rebuilt last year and only did 3 race hours since. The Lotus comes with an international FIA HTP valid until 31.12.2029.

This is your opportunity to obtain a very competitive Lotus Elan to FIA specifications, which is ready to win races in any national or international historic championship. Very competitvely priced to sell and immediately available.
