1973 Lotus Elan

The Lotus Elan was introduced in the early 1960s and produced for more than a decade, in different variants. Roadster models came first, with an optional hardtop. A Lotus Elan Plus 2 with four seats was added to the model range from 1967 to 1975. The Elan model was steadily developed throughout the years, increasing the horsepower and adding neat design features. The Sprint model was the last version of the Lotus Elan, powered by a 1.6-liter, 126-hp, DOHC engine with Weber carburetors. The Lotus Elan Spirit was an advanced vehicle, equipped with rack and pinion steering, disc brakes and all-around independent suspension. Colin Chapman designed the Lotus Elan with a light body and good aerodynamics, which contributed to the car’s remarkable handling qualities.
