1558cc, 4-speed manual. Finished in French blue with Silver metal flake roof. This Lotus Elan +2 Big Valve appears to have been off the road in the UK from 2008 until 2014 when it was exported to Germany. In early 2020, the Lotus was subject to a full engine rebuild by a Belgian garage and was purchased from them by the vendor in 2022. However, ill health has not provided him with the opportunity to use it. He advises that since his purchase, the ignition system has been overhauled and the car drives very well. The front bucket seats are new and the interior is very much of the period. Externally it is tidy but would benefit from cosmetic attention and is described as a useable example.
There is currently a V5, MoT history covering 2005 to 2008 and workshop manuals. The mileage is recorded at 90,014
