The Lotus Elan was introduced in 1960 and produced from 1962 to 1973 in many variants. The Lotus Elan 1500—or Lotus Elan S1 type 26 was the original model and was recognizable to its colored coned rear lights, pop-up headlights, curved windshield and roll-up windows. A 1.5-liter, twin-cam engine powered the very first models, with an output of 100 hp. The Elan’s engine was soon boosted to its full 1.6-liter and 105 hp potential. Pre-1956 models were all roadsters. An optional removable hardtop was made available from 1963, and the car could be ordered in kit. The Lotus Elan +2—or Plus 2—came out later as a four-seater coupe option, only available assembled. With its simple, light, and streamlined body, the 1962 Lotus Elan was a very successful sports car that offered unmatched performance and handling.
