       A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE EVANTE



 This pretty little car was produced by the tuning firm VEGANTUNE. when they were based in Spalding. Lincolnshire.  They were restoring Lotus Elans. and made some logical developments. including using the Spyder chassis with double wishbone rear suspension. and more up to date running gear.  They decided to produce the car in total. from new. and the company became Evante Cars Ltd.  The main changes from the Elan are fairly obvious. but there were many more beneath the surface.  The engine was Vegantunes own VTA. initially in 1600cc. and later as a 1700cc. They were sold as the “140TC” or with a bit more power. the “160TC”.  Gearbox and Final drive came from Ford. Twin 40 Dellorto's were installed.  giving the car quick response and a lovely sound.  Suspension is double wishbone all round. which gave the car exceptional handling.  Many Road Testers found the car an exciting and enjoyable drive. rating it above most of the other sports cars of the day. The first production cars were built in 1986. and some 30 or so produced in 1987. '88 and 89. giving a total of around 106 Mk 1's. Quite a number of these were LHD and exported. to Germany in particular. There were small changes and improvements introduced with almost every production batch. and of course the individual requirements of potential owners could be incorporated into their car. For those who don't know. the VTA ENGINE has a twin cam alloy head on a Crossflow block. with some other special castings.  Produced for some years prior to the birth of Evante it was used in Formula Atlantic racing and wherever a 1600 twin cam was eligible. The output of 100Bhp per litre. for a two valve engine was. at the time. “state of the art” ( In the Evante it was produced with 140 and 160 Bhp outputs)



 THIS IS A VERY GENUINE CAR IN LOVELY ORDER THROUGHOUT. MECHANICALLY SPOT-ON AND READY TO ENJOY WITH TAX AND MOT.  BENEFITING FROM MASSES OF HISTORY FROM DAY ONE MAKES THIS EVANTE  A VERY ENJOYABLE AND PRACTICAL INVESTMENT.
