Lot No. 209 - 1990 Lotus M100 Elan SE Turbo

Sold for: £4,050

The Lotus M100 Elan, launched in August 1989, was a two-seater, convertible sports car designed by Lotus, with a reliable Japanese engine and manual transmission supplied by Isuzu, and built with the development and testing resources of General Motors. Around £35 million was invested in its development, more than any other car in Lotus history. Its design, featuring a fibreglass composite body over a rigid steel backbone chassis, was true to Lotus founder Colin Chapman's original philosophy of achieving performance through low weight, and the name "Elan" connected the car with its 1960's ancestor, the original Lotus Elan. This particular 1990 model has an impeccable service record with a recent top end engine rebuild and also comes with the original bill of sale. There is no evidence of any 'reactions' in the paintwork and generally speaking the car presents very well indeed, belying its odometer reading of 119,070 miles.
