1970 Lotus Elan

Presented at the London Motor Show, the Lotus Elan was produced from 1962 to 1973. The Elan was designed by Colin Chapman and featured a backbone frame, a fiberglass body, all-disc brakes, rack and pinion steering, and all-coil independent suspension. As a result, the 1970 Lotus Elan offered an enjoyable driving experience and unmatched handling capabilities thanks to the lightweight of the body. The Lotus Elan was available in a coupe trim, a Plus 2 variant with four seats, or a two-seater roadster convertible with an optional hardtop. To avoid taxes in Great Britain, the model was also offered in kit form. More power and nicer appointments were brought to each development of the Elan. Among the nice features of the 1970 Lotus Elan were a one-piece walnut wood dashboard and a 126-hp, four-cylinder engine.
