It is a pleasure to present this stunning Lotus Elan Sprint to the market.
Road and Track reviewed the Elan in 1972 claiming it was “The best Elan yet, and still one of the best cars in the world for the enthusiast. Colin Chapman’s secret had been cunningly and secretly concealed for years, now all can be revealed. We have before us the Lotus Elan Sprint, the latest Elan and the best, by any objective or subjective measurement one would make.”
The Elan Sprint received high praise indeed and for good reason. The light and nimble construction, clean design and impressive performance even today in 2022 are staggering. It is not surprising that this Lotus is regarded as an iconic car and a must have in any classic collection. This stunning example was first registered in New Zealand in December 1976 and has been in the hands of enthusiast owners ever since. Our client, the current custodian of the car in 2020 instructed Motor Sport Solutions New Zealand to rebuild the motor to the highest standard. The car has had minimal use since and has been a pampered member of our client’s collection.
