Description

The Lotus Elan was introduced in 1962 and would go on to become one of the most successful sports cars of all time. It was the first Lotus road car to use the steel backbone chassis with fibreglass bodywork embodying Colin Chapman’s minimum weight design philosophy, weighing in at just 1,600 Ib. It was quickly adopted as the car of choice for privateer entrants who saw the competition potential. On the back of their successes, Chapman began producing factory uprated cars, which were later homologated in 1964. The Lotus Elan GTS 1965 FIA Race car offered here at Autostorico, is finished in Blue with a White nose. Having been converted to full FIA specification in 2018, the car was purchased by Autostorico’s Cliff Gray, who successfully campaigned the car until 2022 including several Class wins in Equipe Libre and overall winner of Equipe 3 Hour Relay. The current owner campaigned the car during the 2022/23 season, he is reluctantly selling the car due to work commitments. Specification highlights include original shell, fitted with lightweight 26R arches, bonnet, boot, hardtop, bumpers, and diff scoop. Heated front windscreen, Lexan operating side window, Full roll cage, Tillet seat with OMP harnesses, Racetech instruments, long range fuel tank, Fire extinguisher, Facet fuel pumps, Oil cooler, 5 ½ “ Minilite style bolt on wheels, Aeroquip lines, Alloy radiator and header tank, Wosp alternator, FIA spec engine with 45 DCOE’s carburettors Yarwood gearbox, TTR output shafts along with heavy-duty engine and gearbox mounts.
