The Lotus Elan was Lotus’ first commercial success. and was renowned for being light, well balanced, agile, reliable and affordable. Durings the Elans 13 years of production, the Elan Sprint is considered to be the finest and around 1000 Sprints were built and sold over their 4 year production. This particular Sprint looks absolutley stunning in its Gold Leaf livery, and with a host of refurbished items, has to be one of the best examples available today.
