This is a great value starter Classic which is not only stunning to look at but practical and easy to live with also. It is a 1970 Lotus Elan Plus 2 finished in Light Metallic Blue with Black interior. Our car was first registered in April 1970 and has only had 4 long term owners in its life and has covered 97k Miles from new which is believed genuine.

It has been said of Colin Chapman that while he always claimed that he designed cars he wanted to drive. as he matured so those designs kept pace. The Lotus Elan +2 certainly offers the early middle-aged family man Lotus handling and performance allied to accommodation for two adults plus two small children. or a third adult in the rear. When first introduced in 1967. the Lotus Elan +2 cost £1. 72 in component form (still offered then) or £1. 23 fully built. including UK purchase tax. The Lotus +2 remained in production until December 1969 while from that October a new +2S was marketed as a more luxurious variant with improved interior trim. fog lamps and an alternator amongst other former extras. For the first time here was a Lotus that was offered only in fully-built form. and not as a kit.

The end result was a two-plus-two of considerable charm and style that was capable of genuine 120mph cruising. and blessed with a 0-60mph acceleration time of around 8 seconds. The first +2S 130 then replaced the +2S in February. 1971.

This is a great driving car in a useable original. non restored condition. It is a little scruffy in places with the usual spider web cracks. It has had the CV Driveshaft conversion and comes with its original wheels as well as the current period Wolfrace alloys. quite rare themsleves. We have a service history going back to the Eighties and the car itself is a pleasure to own and drive. We have priced her just above the level of a restoration project for a quick sale but you are getting an awful lot of car for the money.
