1963 Lotus Elite

The Lotus Elite marks a step in the history of the manufacturer, as the first grand tourer model. The car was introduced in 1957 and produced until 1963 in two series and a SE variant—Special Equipment, recognizable to its silver roof. A monococque fiberglass construction was employed, which saved costs and reduced weight compared to the traditional aluminum and steel fabrication. Peter Kirwan-Taylor designed the car, combining great aerodynamics and elegant lines. A 1.2-liter, straight-four, aluminum engine powered the Elite and offered 75 hp—85 hp for the SE. Winning classes at Le Mans and the Nürburgring among other races, the Lotus Elite was also very successful on the track. When the production ended in 1963, over 1,000 models of Lotus Elite had been built and the Elan model came as a replacement.
