1991 Lotus Elan M100 in superb original “near mint” condition. Absolutely none finer. I’m the 2nd proud owner for the last 3 years. Only 48K low miles. I have written several articles on my cross country excursions in this car on Lotus Elan Central forums. Most recently completing another 1,000 mile “trouble-free” trek throughout West Virginia this week! Last year, similar 3,000 mile “trouble-free” trek throughout upstate Michigan.

Clad in beautiful Norfolk Mustard, rguably the most beautiful color offered, he car runs and drives perfectly. Original body paint is excellent with no clear coat issues, o fading, o cracking, o damage. Original paint wheels also in excellent shape complete with OZ stickers! Equipped with accessory Lotus logo wheel center caps (I have original plain silver ones too).

The car is completely original and unmodified with the exception of the desirable “Everest chip” that I installed last year. I have also replaced the original plastic sheathed shifter cables with A/B cables from Dave Bean. The original top is in excellent condition with clear plastic rear window and no fading or tearing of the black top material. All door seals and window/top gaskets in excellent condition. The brakes are original (no replacements or upgrades) and in good working order. Under the hood the engine bay is practically spotless and clean.

Interior is nearly perfect with no rips, ears or cracking. Dash is excellent too. A/C blows cold and I’ve never had to service it. Regular oil/filter service is about all I have had to do with this nearly “maintenance-free” car. The two cam seal O-rings have been replaced (prone to seap). I have an accessory front black “Bra” that I never use, ut comes with the car. An extra set of floor mats included. I have original Owner's Manual and original window sticker. The trunk contains original spare wheel/tire, ack and tool kit all untouched!

The original owner, ow deceased, as from Wisconsin. I bought it with only 33K miles on it. I have a copy of the clean CarFax report when I purchased it. Timing and drive belts replaced at 30K miles prior to my purchase. Everything works as original equipment with no issues. All electrics, ights, indows, tc., n perfect working order. Car needs nothing. Drive it anywhere without worry!

This is the most civilized Lotus you can drive and one even your wife will love! It has creature comforts of air conditioning and ease of entry/exit without contortion. It has a large trunk and a convertible top! It was the only front wheel drive car Lotus ever made and comes with all the zip and handling that the Lotus heritage and pedigree can offer.

This is one of the finest examples of the M100 known in the USA. Consistent winner at LOGs, ritish car shows, nd other display events. This is the first public offering of this beautiful Elan. Regrettably, need to “thin the herd” a bit and one of my collection must go.


NOTE: I'm 6'6" and pushing 270 lbs. and I fit justfine, o you bigger drivers always wanting a Lotus, his is just right for you.

Car is available for pre-bid inspections and I would always encourage and welcome this.
