1966 Lotus Elan S3 SE For Sale

1966 Lotus Elan S3 SE The Lotus Elan is considered by many to be one of the best handing and performing Sports cars of the 20th Century. A fact confirmed by none other than the legendary Gordon Murray, designer of the mythical McLaren F1. Murray was once asked by Motor Sport magazine, “It’s your last drive, one car, one road.” “What car and where?” Murray replied, “Lotus Elan, Scottish Highlands”. This rare 1966 S3 Special Equipment DHC model is an absolute gem. And a very special opportunity. Amongst its few previous owners (as confirmed on the original buff logbook still with the car) was Robert Horne, who also owned numerous exotic sports and sports racing cars including the Land Speed Record Ferrari 512M, and a Ford France GT40 – clearly a man who knew the best cars when he saw them. Following Horne’s ownership the car passed through several hands finally landing with the previous owner, a mechanical engineer, who owned and cherished the car for almost 40 years. During his tenure he personally maintained the car and undertook all of the essential tasks including changing the time-worn original chassis for a Lotus-supplied galvanised replacement. The car was painted by the late, legendary Mick Miller, and the paintwork remains superb to this day. As a result of this careful ownership, the car has a comprehensive file of paperwork and invoices documenting its history and maintenance records. A check with the Lotus registrar also confirms that this car still retains its original factory supplied twin-cam motor fed via twin Weber carburettors. All of the important detail pieces which are becoming so hard to find for early Elans are present on this car, including, for example, black insert ‘teardrop’ gear knob, rear view mirror, Radiomobile radio, original jack etc. Most recently this car has received a great deal of refining and servicing by specialists at Bell Classic, invoices for which are available in the comprehensive history folder. A full report on the car was provided by Bell Classics’ chief mechanic (ex Len Street, Chelsea) and all items have since been meticulously taken care of. I have had the pleasure of owning multiple Elans, and this is by far the most original and rewarding to drive. The steering ‘feel’ is sublime, throttle response immediate, and the four discs pull it up to a halt efficiently. This is a special opportunity to own one of the very finest examples of this rare S/E derivative.
