Lotus Elan Sprint 1971

Lotus Elan Sprint for sale

The Elan Sprint was the last version marketed, between 1971 and 1973, following the Series 1, 2, 3 and 4. Essentially, the Sprint was an up rated S4, fitted with a more powerful version of the Lotus twin cam engine. Though there are some who see the Sprint as a tuned S4, there is no doubt that Lotus intended it to be a separate version of the Elan (an “S5” in effect) and that it was marketed as such. The Sprint has become one of the more sought-after Elan types and they are relatively few in number.

Exterior: Most likely still in the first paint! There are some patches in some places where previous owners used some spray paint. Also some stars and small cracks in the paint. However, from 2 meters it looks great. Front windscreen is a little bit milky on the side and the rubber is old and dry.

Interior: 100% original in here and it still looks very nice! There are some very small cracks in the clearcoat on the wood but otherwise it looks amazing for an untouched original car. All instruments work as they should and everything else also works such as fan, lights etc.

Engine: The car was sitting for many years and that is the reason for the low mileage. Also, all fluids, the headgasket and the seals in the water pump have been replaced. The 4 speed gearbox is nice and tight. All brake hoses replaced, callipers rebuilt, and new brake cylinder, also clutch cylinder and hose. New stainless steel muffler, and new driveshafts (flexjoints). It starts easily and runs perfectly now.

History: The car was bought in U.K. in 1987, the recorded mileage then was 51,853 miles. It was then put on an airplane and flown to Stockholm, Sweden. There are inspection papers here in Sweden from almost every year and there has been only one owner of this car. Therefore, with certainty today the recorded millage is 60,820 miles! That is 97,400km only! With the car is a lot of interesting documentation such as the U.K. vehicle registration document in original. The plate number at the time was BH7 7BG and there are also original handbook, sales agreement, and MOT documents from both U.K. and Sweden.

Lotus Elan Sprint

Lotus Elan Sprint RHD 1971 for sale

This is an extremely correct Lotus Elan Sprint! It had a full restoration and has not been used much after that. Everything was put to original specifications or better. All mechanical work  was carried out by a well-known brand specialist here in Sweden. Stainless steel exhaust.

It was produced in April 1971 and sold to Hexagon dealers in London, and it came to Sweden in June 1987. Including dealers, it had 8 owners in Sweden and the last Technical Inspection was done here on 26th of August 2014.

One of the features that separate the Elan Sprint from the other Elans is the big valve engine with double weber carburetors. It produces approximately 20% more power than the S4.

You can read more about all of the other small features that are specific for the Elan Sprint on the following page.  http://www.lotuselansprint.com/index.asp?pageid=41823

The interior is new with N.O.S parts, the rollcage can be removed if one wishes to. It is today rolling on a new set of Panasport wheels but the original wheels are also with the car.

This is a very clean and tidy Lotus Elan Sprint that handles perfectly on the road. It is difficult to find a classic sportscar more fun to drive than this one! At the same time, I am sure it is a great investment. It is in superb color combination and is ready to go anywhere! If you have been thinking about buying a Lotus Elan Sprint, you must come and see this one!

Located in southern Sweden with easy access to Copenhagen airport and ferries to Germany. Will be happy to help you arrange shipping to anywhere in the word. 

In all there was only about 1300 Sprint cars built.
