Upon its launch in 1967. the Lotus Elan +2 fitted very snugly
between British sports car manufacturers such as Marcos. TVR and
major manufacturers such as Triumph and MG. The Elan +2 was a
development and evolution from the original Elan of 1962 and saw a
totally new closed coupé body designed to accommodate a couple of
children or useful storage for shopping. The two Elans; the
original still being produced alongside the +2. had many
interchangeable parts except for the body; this was a benefit to
the +2 as the mechanical parts had proven very reliable. The Lotus
Elan +2 - as with the original - was also sold in kit form. br/>but to get away from the heritage of kit cars. Lotus introduced an
improved Elan a year later which was only available to buy factory
built. The improvements were a more luxurious interior and fog
lamps fitted under the front bumpers. and the vehicle was
designated the Lotus Elan +2S. The next major change was in 1971
when a big valve engine was offered. resulting in the Lotus Elan +2
130S. with another option of a very attractive metal-flake roof
paint job.

This is probably the best race prepared Lotus Elan on the
market. Literally tens of thousands of pounds have been spent with
specialist companies Track-Group Ltd. Tony Thompson Racing and
Minister Ltd. Track-Group have completely rebuilt the Lotus Twin
Cam all steel engine and added new Weber carburettors. then
professionally set up and dyno'd at 178bhp. with the engine alone
costing over £12. 00. A fully rebuilt close ratio gearbox with all
new internals has also been fitted. Other items include a three
bolt differential output shaft upgrade. an up-rated
differential. a high torque starter motor. large bore exhaust
manifold. large bore stainless exhaust system. adjustable dampers
with race springs. race specification drive shafts. foam filled
aluminium fuel tank. a facet red top fuel pump. new wiring loom. a
high flow aluminium radiator and header tank. up-rated engine and
gearbox mounts. new FIA Corbeau seat. roll cage. plumbed-in fire
suppression and electrical cut off. Finished in red. this Elan is
supplied with a V5 registration document and an MoT test
certificate. This car literally wants for nothing. everything is
new and the car has only 1½ hours shakedown test since the
rebuild.
