1964 Lotus Elan 26R Série 2 For Sale by Auction

For sale in our forthcoming auction in Paris, on 17 June 2019: Austrian title Chassis No 26-S2-4 - Rare 26R version - One of 97 examples - Known history - Beautiful restoration Introduced in October 1962, the lightweight and powerful Lotus Elan (code 26) turned out to be one of the most successful cars in its category. During the same period, Lotus also produced a lightweight competition version (code 26R), fitted with a reinforced chassis and dual-shift engine which developed close to 150 hp, while the brakes and running gear were improved. Only 97 units were made, series 1 and 2 combined. The 26-S2-4 chassis is part of this series and was bought new in 1965 by the Lotus importer and racing driver Rolf Mark from Austria. According to a list that he put together, this green car was then sold on 12 April 1965 to Peter Peter, Austrian driver who was racing it in the 1966 season. The car was then acquired by Richard Gerin for the 1967 season and it got severely damaged, as evidenced by a picture taken at the time. It seems that the next buyer was known as S. Kornher, who registered the car on 14 February 1973. This 26R will again change hands in 1980, and in 1996 it is acquired by the current owner's husband. The car was not driveable at that point and a major rebuild initiative would then be put in place, like the replacement of the chassis and bodywork while retaining the original parts within. The engine block has been replaced while keeping the BRM preparation. Driven by Peter Peter, this car was then entered into various historic rallies and is authenticated by Tony Thomson from the Historic Lotus Register. Barely used following the death of its owner, the car was repainted in its original colour in 2016 and recently rebuilt by a friend, but it will have to undertake some roadworthiness testing.
