1971 Lotus Elan Sprint DHC

This extremely pretty Elan Sprint DHC is a well-known car within the Lotus world. and features in Brian Buckland's ‘Elan Bible'.

First registered 20th September 1971. we have paperwork and receipts going back to 1979 detailing over £35k spent on the car since in repair and restoration. excluding the extensive hours put during the mid 90s when the car was completely restored from scratch using a new bodyshell.
The chassis has been replaced with a Spyder reproduction. the body and paint were carried out by acclaimed Elan specialists. SMS of Spalding (costing over £8k in 1994) and the interior and weather gear completely replaced. along with the myriad of miscellaneous unseen parts that constitutes a complete restoration to the correct standards.

More recently. our Elan has had a complete engine rebuild (with water pump). clutch. front suspension and new braking system in late 2010 by Trackvroad. A rolling road tune at Ric Wood's in 2011 confirmed the new engine was producing a healthy 125bhp.

Over the last couple of years further money has been lavished refurbishing the heating system. replacing the electric window motors. replacing the ignition system. alternator and fuse box to name but a few items. Suffice to say that no stone has been left unturned in the quest to ensure this Elan is as good as it can be and maintained correctly.

The result is not only a very pretty car throughout with a great history. but one that lives up to the Elan legend on the road. With a supple ride. precise handling and fabulous performance. A lovely car that needs nothing.
