1991 LOTUS ELAN ELAN M100 - £POA

  • Aetv55823800 1
  • Aetv55823800 2

SOLD: One of 180 naturally aspirated M100 Elans, one family owner, 68k miles.EQUIPMENTLeather upholstery, PAS, Folding soft-top, 15-inch alloy wheels, Electric windows, Electrically operated door mirrors, Pop-up headlamps, Clarion CRH-20 cassette radio, Leather gear knob, Battery cut-off, Lockable glove compartment, Cigar lighter, Ash tray, Space-saver spare wheel, Spare key.EXTERIORThis superb little roadster is pleasingly finished in vibrant Calypso Red. Absent of decoration, overhangs and wasted space, the M100's design has poise, presence and style. The aerodynamic fiberglass exterior presents well throughout and is for the most part in very good condition. On close inspection there are just a few discreet blemishes to the bumpers that have been touched up, but certainly nothing untoward for a car of this vintage. The Elan is topped-off with a manually operated black hood boasting a clear and crack-free rear window, and the dealer-supplied registration plates are still present with the vehicle.INTERIORThe grey leather upholstery appears particularly fresh, showing almost no signs of any wear. The contrasting red accents of the comfortable sports seats look especially appealing against the exterior paintwork. The minimalist cabin presents to an excellent standard throughout, with only expected wear to the gear knob as evidence of use. Commonly worn items such as the steering wheel, carpets, and door cards retain a largely unblemished appearance.ENGINE & TRANSMISSIONThe M100's 1.6-litre Isuzu engine was developed with help from Lotus. The peppy four-cylinder here is one of just 180 naturally aspirated examples, making the non-turbocharged Elan a particularly rare purchase today. The engine's 130hp is sent to the front wheels via a precise five-speed gearbox. Under the bonnet the engine bay appears in fine fettle. There are no signs of damage or poor repair, and the engine itself has been well maintained by Lotus at close mileage intervals. A raft of main dealer invoices present in the paperwork detail the car's maintenance history up to the current mileage.WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKESThe 15-inch cast aluminium wheels present well having just been refurbished to a good standard. They are shod in a matching set of Continental tyres with little wear, having been fitted just 800 miles ago. Both front and rear discs and pads have also been changed within the last 900 miles, ensuring this little Lotus stops just as it should. The rear shocks were replaced at 68k miles as well.HISTORY FILEThis charming Elan has remained within the same family since new and has seen just two keepers, mother and then daughter. The history file is complete with a stack of Lotus invoices, and has been maintained almost exclusively by HR Owen since very early on in the car's life. The original bill of sale is still present and shows the total invoice price of £20,900, which includes the optional extras of power-assisted steering and full leather upholstery.Please visit our website for a full write up and additional photographs.Worldwide shipping is available on request.www.4starclassics.comTel - 01420 479909For updates of new stock please join us on Facebook:www.facebook.com/4starclassicsWe are always looking for quality stock so please get in contact if you are thinking of selling a similar classic car.
