1979 Lotus Elite 504 *WITHDRAWN For Sale by Auction

For sale by auction on Saturday 25th November 2017 with Historics at Brooklands. Registration KFW 430V Chassis Number 7905/1512A Odometer reading 73000 From 1974 to 1982, Lotus produced the four-seat, considerably larger Type 75 and later Type 83 Elite. Lotus sought, with this design, to position itself upmarket and move away from its kit car past. The Elite replaced the ageing Lotus Elan Plus 2 whilst the mid-engined Lotus Esprit replaced the Europa. Oliver Winterbottom designed the Elite's striking shape and he is quoted as saying that the basic chassis and suspension layout were designed by Colin Chapman making the Elite and its sister design, the Éclat, the last Lotus road cars to have significant design input from Chapman himself. This genuine UK supplied Lotus was purchased from a Lotus enthusiast and journalist in June 2012. It had been stored for some time but was then lovingly re-commissioned. The works involved a new cam belt, ignition system and new Weber DCOE45 carburettors. The twin cam engine is nicely detailed and mated to an automatic gearbox that works well. The air conditioning pump has also been removed, a common practice in period that improved power and fuel consumption and new brakes and fuel pump have been fitted. Importantly, the rare factory option leather is in good order, as are the rest of the interior fittings. A current MoT test certificate, valid until the end of May 2018 is also supplied alongside service bills. A rare sight on the roads today, this Lotus Elite represents an unusually attractive opportunity offered, as it is, with no reserve.
