The Elan Sprint was the last version of the ever successful Lotus Elan, sold between 1971 and 1973. Considered by some to be an uprated S4, fitted with a more powerful version of the Lotus Twin Cam Engine, Lotus were intent on it being a separate version of the Elan and it was sold and marketed that way from the start.
The Sprint has become one of the more sought after Elan types and is now rare.
This stunning example is finished in it's original colour of Lotus yellow over white, with a black vinyl interior.
Amazingly this car has had only 3 owners from new, the first one owning it for more than 40 years, which included taking it to Australia with him when he retired there in 2004. The car returned to the UK in 2015, having led a very pampered life, she is still fitted with the original chassis.
Included with the car, are the original handbooks, sales brochure spare keys, workshop manuals and numerous receipts and invoices.
The engine has had a recent major re-build by J & E Engineering of Rossendale. Also the rear axle has been uprated by the fitting of alloy hubs and stronger drive shafts, which replace the fragile rubber doughnuts, which are a well know weak spot on Sprint's.
