Buying or Selling a Lotus Elite Type 14?
Elegant two-seater, coupe sports car, the Lotus Elite Type 14 was built from 1957 to 1963. Until then, Lotus was known for making race and kit cars. The Elite marked the beginning of a line of cutting edge road models. The model was penned by Peter Kirwan-Taylor and the car boasted a fiberglass body with elegant and refined design. A Coventry Climax FEW engine with a capacity of 1.2 liters powered the Elite and produced 75 to 105 hp. The unit was linked to a four-speed MGA gearbox. The Lotus Elite Type 14 offered advanced features including four-wheel disc brakes when other much more expensive sports car were still fitted with drums. The Elite performed quite well, its principal quality being great handling abilities, and race applications were developed.
