1970 Lotus Elan +2 SOLD

Not for sale - it has been sold via a Car and Classic Free Ad
We are delighted to offer for sale this fabulous 1970 Lotus Elan +2 4 speed.

This car has been purchased and worked on as part of a new TV series. We looked at a number of examples before deciding to purchase this one, as it offered a degree of honesty and originality that is rare to find. We have taken a car that was ‘pretty good’ and given it the cosmetic attention it needed.

Mechanically, the car was already in excellent condition with a tight, lively on-road experience. The previous owner spent literally years making it drive and run correctly. It has the 1557cc Lotus twin cam – (126bhp, 0-60 7.9s) - which revs well and does not overheat. The gears, clutch, brakes and steering are all at the high standard this car requires.

A full programme of cosmetic works has now been completed and has included a full strip, treatment and repair of all fibreglass across the whole car, a full respray in stunning Glacier Blue.

Rechromed bumpers, headlights and refurbished wheels beautifully finish off the exterior transformation

Internally, a new headlining has been fitted, the dashboard has been refurbished and fitted with a new clock. All electrics have also been checked.

We have been attempting to make a car that can be used and enjoyed and have retained as much of the original charm of the car as possible.

The Elan +2 is a classic car with values on the rise, and with such a tasteful, thorough and well-executed refurbishment, our car represents an excellent opportunity for a discerning new owner.

This vehicle has featured in an upcoming episode of a new TV show, and as such it is a condition of sale that you are willing and happy to appear on camera buying the car from our presenters on a date during the next 4 weeks

Viewings are welcome at our workshop in Nottingham. Please get in touch if you have any questions or require additional information.
