1965 Lotus Elan at the Maxey Classic Car Show - August 2021
This Lotus Elan S2 sports car from 1965 was on display at the Maxey Classic Car and Bike Show in August 2021. The model was manufactured by Norfolk-based Lotus Cars Limited. Exact production figures are unknown but the company is believed to have manufactured somewhere between 9,000 and 12,000 Elan cars between 1962 and 1973. Interestingly, the Elan was sold in the United Kingdom either as a fully-assembled vehicle or as a lower-priced kit for assembly by the purchaser, the latter option enabling buyers to avoid paying purchase tax.
This particular Elan is equipped with a 1,557cc engine capable of a top speed of 115 miles per hour and accelerating from zero to 60 miles per hour in 7.5 seconds. It was first registered in September 1965 and was purchased by its original owner for 1,600; adjusted for inflation, this was equivalent to 31,682 at 2020 prices.
