Lotus Elan Sprint DHC, 1973.  20th from last Sprint ever built.  I have been running this Sprint myself for over 5 years and it is one of the best I have ever driven.  I sold my first Sprint in the 1970’s and have had the privilege to drive some of the best over the years and this really is out of the top-drawer.  All matching numbers.  Galvanised Lotus chassis.  Original colour combination of Gold-Leaf Team Lotus colours, with the paintwork being in absolutely exceptional condition.  Engine rebuilt about 15k miles ago and it is as sweet as any Twin-Cam you will ever hear and experience.  Fabulous gear-change, steering and braking.  New brake servo.  Stainless-steel exhaust system.  New top quality hood and studs fitted with the original soft-top retained.  A new walnut dashboard was fitted, but the original straight-grained one retained (see photo), so this could be refitted if preferred, which we are happy to do.  Original Colin Chapman steering wheel.  Alloy radiator and swirl-pot.  Original radiator can be fitted if preferred.  Masses of service history and old MOT certificates going back to the Seventies.  Original tool-roll.  Certificate of Provenance and Letter of Authenticity from the Lotus classic archive department.  A fantastic car with a matching history.  Definitely one of the best Sprints in existence.
