Lotus Elan Sprint FHC


It is with pleasure that we can bring to the market this lovely example of the Lotus Elan Sprint FHC finished in the classic Gold Leaf Team Lotus colour scheme of Carnival red over Cirrus White.

This car was built in November 1971 for the UK market and was first registered at the beginning of 1972.

The first couple of services (at 520 & 3,237 miles) were carried out in the UK before the owner took the car with him in 1973 when he started a new life on the other side of the world in New Zealand.

There it stayed, leading a cherished life in the hands of true enthusiasts. The displayed mileage (of 91,600) is supported as being true and correct by the comprehensive records, original service book and note books kept by the previous owners – it all make fascinating reading and give a lovely insight into this car’s life so far.

Between 2005 and 2008 when it had travelled around 77,000 miles, the car was subject to a full body off restoration – the history file includes numerous invoices including many for parts purchased from marque specialists in the UK. The quality of this restoration can be seen by the amazing condition that this car remains in today. Ten years, and approximately 14,000 miles, later this car is still stunning. Both inside, outside (it has benefitted from an adhesive film protection), underneath and mechanically the car is hard to fault.

Most importantly with any sports car, and particularly a Lotus, this example drives beautifully and would quite simply be a joy to own! It is now fully re-registered here in the UK and is ready for its next lucky custodian to cherish it as it has been so far.

Presented now along with its original handbook, service book, workshop manual and a period “Gold Leaf Team Lotus” keyring. Any inspection would be very welcome and encouraged – you will surely not be disappointed.
