Fully restored some seven thousand miles ago, this Special Equipment coupe features the signature Lotus TwinCam engine with green cam covers and a close-ratio gearbox. The 'Special Equipment' has a bit more power (118bhp) and is fitted with servo assisted brakes, safety belts, a leather covered steering wheel, knock-on wheels with chrome embellishers, a carpeted boot interior, electric windows, and Special Equipment badges. The comprehensive restoration included a new Lotus Heritage galvanised chassis and the impressive history file contains details of the extensive nature of the restoration and the use of correct parts. A simple inspection is all that needed to see the quality of the work carried out. Upgrades at the time included a high-torque starter motor, alloy radiator and fuel tank, and a stainless steel exhaust. The look is complete with Lotus knock-on wheels. Contained in the history file is an original Lotus Elan Sales Brochure and evidence of approximately seven thousand pounds of bills in the last four years to maintain this Elan in the best possible condition. The Elan's MoT is valid until June 2019<br />Still 'wowing' today, this stunning Elan could grace any event or just be enjoyed as Chapman envisaged as a fast, cross-country masterpiece of efficienc y.</span></div>
