This 1971 Lotus Elan +2 is of a nice driver quality example, only 29,720 miles!

This 1971 Lotus Elan +2 is of a nice driver quality example. Attractive Silver over Black color combo with a black vinyl roof. The interior is in excellent condition. 29,720 miles on the odometer. The famous Lotus Ford Kent Twin Cam 1600 with Dual 40 DCOE Webers fires right up and pulls really strong. The 4-spd manual transmission works as it should. If you want something different yet competent and affordable this car is a great choice. We don't have a comprehensive background on this very unique classic due to the recent owner only possessed the car since 2016 so a pre-purchase inspection at the buyer's expense is welcome.

An Elan +2 was introduced in 1967 with a longer wheelbase and two rear seats. Tested maximum power: 108-126 bhp (net) (depending on the model); top speed: 120 mph (190 km/h), 0-60 mph in 7.9 seconds, 0-100 mph 21.8 seconds. 5,200 Elan +2s were made: fewer than 1,200 of these cars remain in the roads today. The Elan ceased production in 1973 and the Elan +2 in 1975, replaced by the Elite II and Lotus Eclat. An estimated total of 17,000 original Elans and Elan +2s were built.
