Lotus Engineering Limited was formed by engineer Colin Chapman. br/>a graduate of University College London. in 1952. The first factory
was in old stables behind the Railway Hotel in Hornsey. North
London. Team Lotus. which was independent from Lotus Engineering in
1954. was active and competitive in Formula One racing from 1958 to
1994. The Elite's striking shape was designed by Oliver
Winterbottom. He is quoted as saying that the basic chassis and
suspension layout were designed by Colin Chapman making the Elite
and its sister design. the Éclat. the last Lotus road cars to have
significant design input from Chapman himself.

Originally registered on 1st August 1979. this Lotus Elite 504. br/>shows only one owner on the V5 registration document. The
current vendor had a Lotus garage for a number of years and
purchased the car from the registered keeper some 20 years ago. As
he was in the motor trade. he didn't transfer the Lotus into his
name and. as such. any purchaser will effectively be the second
registered keeper of this desirable sportscar. which presents in
remarkable condition and appears to be totally original. There is
no evidence of the car ever having any paintwork repairs and the
velour interior trim is in excellent order. As part of the 504
specification. the car is equipped with power steering. automatic
transmission and air conditioning. all of which appeared to be
working fine on our demonstration test drive. We are advised that. br/>prior to sale. the Elite will be fully serviced and the cambelt
will be changed. The car comes supplied with the original
service books. a V5 registration document and a full year's MoT
test certificate. A Lotus Elite is a rare sight on the road and
even more so in this condition.
