For Sale: 1969 Lotus Elan in Rye, New Hampshire


Vehicle Description

Fully restored and ready to drive Lotus Elan couple.

The Lotus Elan was the first Lotus road car to use a steel backbone chassis with a fibreglassbody. This style of construction was to be repeated in subsequent Lotus models for nearly three decades. At approximately 1,500 lb (680 kg), the Elan embodied Colin Chapman'sminimum weight design philosophy. The Elan was technologically advanced with a DOHC 1,558 cc engine, four-wheel disc brakes, rack and pinion steering, and 4-wheel independent suspension. Gordon Murray, designer of the McLaren F1 supercar, reportedly said that his only disappointment with the McLaren F1 was that he could not give it the perfect steering of the Lotus Elan.[]
