Description

1960 Lotus Elite Coupé

This original 1960 Lotus Elite is a rare and exciting find just out of long-term storage. Red with tan interior. An extremely desirable and collectible sports-car for straightforward restoration. It's not currently running and is missing its alternator, starter, and distributor. A solid, straight, and honest example with a lot of potential. Launched at the 1957 Earl’s Court Motor Show, 
Colin Chapman demonstrated that his skills as a racing car designer and constructor could just as easily be applied to production road cars. It was, nevertheless, conceived with competition in mind, as Chapman’s sights were set on class wins at Le Mans and the Monte Carlo Rally. A typically innovative design, the Elite featured a fiberglass monocoque body tub, independent suspension all round and four-wheel disc brakes, while the aerodynamically efficient body made the most of the Coventry Climax engine’s 75bhp, delivering a top speed of 112mph. Offering iconic styling and exciting engineering, these cleverly designed sports-cars are sought by enthusiasts around the world.

  • Exhilarating and cleverly engineered sports car
  • Colin Chapman's legendary lightweight GT
  • A rare and original sports car icon 
  • Excellent example for straightforward restoration

Price: $56,500
