1970 Lotus Elan +2 

Rebuild by Spyder Engineering in 2010

 

Offered for sale here is this beautiful and highly developed Lotus Elan +2. 

 

The cars previous owner has been loyal to the Lotus brand for many years, but also appreciated that occasionally, just occasionally they tend to stop working. 

The idea of creating an example with the subtle, handsome aesthetics of a standard Elan +2 but with modern underpinnings appealed, therefore Spyder Engineering were tasked with the job of creating such a thing, a job they are known to do very well indeed.

 

Work to his car was carried out throughout 2010 and was extremely thorough. With the body out of the way and sent off to be stripped, re-gel coated and re-sprayed. A new space frame chassis equipped with a Ford 2.0 litre Zetec engine running twin throttle bodies mated to a five speed gearbox was created. 

Fully independent front and rear suspension and uprated brakes were also fitted. 

 

The end result is sublime, with 190 bhp delivered reliably, comfortably and without fuss this really is the car it should have always been. The 0-60 dash is over in 6 seconds and at slightly silly speeds this car feels as solid as a rock. 

A highly impressive achievement. 

 

Finished in blue with silver roof and fully reupholstered in grey leather this example presents very well indeed. It has been enjoyed regularly during its ten year stint with its previous keeper, with many trips abroad undertaken with ease. 

 

To be sold freshly serviced, MOT'd and with a history file containing receipts for all works carried out, this wonderful Lotus is ready to be enjoyed.
