1962 Lotus Elite

The Lotus Elite Type 14 was the first Elite, introduced in 1957 and produced from 1958 to 1963 in two Series. The most distinguishable feature of the Lotus Elite Type 14 was its advanced fiberglass monococque fabrication, which made the car extra light. A large engine with crazy horsepower was therefore not required to compete with other sports cars of the decade. The car’s aluminum, straight-four engine had a capacity of 1.2 liters and an output of 85 hp. The unit was linked to a smooth and precise ZF gearbox for the SE edition—Special Equipment. The Lotus Elite could reach a top speed of 112 mph and accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 11.4 seconds, according to a road test by The Motor magazine in 1960. The 1962 Lotus Elite S2 featured a more luxurious interior than its predecessor, as well as revised rear suspension.
