Buying or Selling a Lotus Elan?


Lotus Elan
Lotus Elan

Produced from 1962 to 1973, the Lotus Elan was a road-going sports car, made in a two-seat coupe or convertible version, as well as in a four-seat coupe variant called the Elan +2. All two-seaters were roadsters until 1965—a hardtop could be added on option. The series 3 model was a fixed-head coupe introduced in late 1965, followed by a roadster model in 1966 and the Lotus Elan 26R—the racecar application of the model. A twin-cam, 1.6-liter engine powered the Elan and was based on a Ford unit but was specially built by Lotus. The Lotus Elan M100 was another model made in the 1980s and 1990s, which was completely different from the Elan of the 1960s and 1970s. The distinguishable features of the Lotus Elan were its lightness, simplicity, and excellent handling. The model was declined in S1, S2, S3, S4, and Sprint variants over the years, introducing mechanical improvements and new design cues each time.


Lotus Elan Seller’s Guide

The total production of the Lotus Elan exceeded 14,000 models according to most sources. Finding accurate information on the early Lotus models can be difficult because the factory suffered a fire during the Elan’s production run. The Lotus Elan model was quite popular, partly thanks to its starring role in The Avengers television series. Many classic Lotus enthusiasts are looking for a well-maintained Elan with original parts or a model that has an interesting history. Be sure to give much information about your classic to potential buyers. If you currently own a Lotus Elan and thinking about selling it, Alex Manos and his team would be happy to meet you.
