1963 Lotus Elan for Sale

This wonderfully prepared, super sprint winning 1963 Lotus Elan has come on the market for the first time since undergoing a complete restoration. Featuring a Quaiffe gearbox and rear differential, the Lotus Elan is ready for weekend coastal cruises and stage races alike.

To lament just how important the weight is, The Elan’s power to weight ratio of 115kW per tonne is roughly the same as that of a new 2016 Volkswagen Golf GTI.
