Registration Number: EU Registered Chassis Number: 26-4407
Launched at the 1962 London Motor Show, at the Elan‘s heart was a rigid backbone chassis so good that it has formed the basis of all Lotus models since. Independent suspension under a light and outstandingly pretty glassfibre body ensured nimble handling with racing car feel and responses, while soft springing also provided an excellent ride - a combination allowing the Elan numerous track successes in little modified form; brakes were disc all round with centre-lock wheels. The engine, initially 1,498cc but soon increased to 1,558cc, was a four cylinder twin-cam unit; breathing through twin Weber 40DCE carburettors, it produced 105bhp at 5,500rpm and, via a close ratio gearbox, powered the diminutive Elan to 112mph and 0-60mph in 9 seconds. For November 1964, the S2 Elan appeared with larger front brake calipers, revised rear
