A Lotus Elan S2 in the best colour of Norfolk Mustard. #736 of 800 built, with just 550 being made available to the UK market.


This great little car has latterly been owned by a long-standing Club Lotus member and is only offered for sale due to ill health. The vehicle benefits from a significant service history, as follows…


October 1995                     A/S service         939 miles             Harkness Ballymena (supplying dealer)

January 1996                      A Service             5661 Miles          Harkness Ballymena

August 1996                       B Service             12104 miles        Miles Wilkins (official Lotus service centre)

December 1996                A Service             18839 miles        Miles Wilkins

April 1997                            B Service             23588 miles        Miles Wilkins

August 1997                       A+C Service        28747 miles        Miles Wilkins

August 1998                       B Service             35792 miles        Miles Wilkins

October 1999                     B Service             42737 miles        Lakeside Engineering (Lotus specialists)

June 2001                            B Service             48523 miles        Mountsett Performance Servicing

November 2001                A Service             49166 miles        Formula One (official Lotus dealer)

June 2002                            B+C Service        50094 miles        Formula One

August 2003                       A Service             51159 miles        Formula One

February 2004                   B Service             51812 miles        Formula One

August 2004                       A Service             53146 miles        Formula One


In 2005, the vehicle entered in to a period of reduced use and it rested until 2014 when acquired by Lotus specialists, Pure Lotus in Harrogate. They undertook a full service and check over before selling her to the current owner. The service history, therefore, continues, as follows…


February 2014                   A+C Service        56304 miles        Pure Lotus


With a few outstanding concerns, the vehicle was immediately sent to the hugely respected Gerald Turner (GST Performance) for a thorough check over. Noting a fault with the speedometer operation, a new unit was fitted and properly documented, resetting the mileage to zero. The service history therefore continues…


February 2014                   B Service             56522/00007 miles          GST Performance (Lotus specialist)

July 2016                              A Service             3809 miles                          GST Performance

February 2017                   Time Service      4322 miles                          GST Performance

February 2018                   Time Service      5343 miles                          GST Performance

February 2019                   Time Service      6632 miles                          GST Performance

January 2020                      Time Service      7831 miles                          GST Performance


Current recorded mileage is 8300 so, when added to 56522 when the speedometer was changed, it makes a total of 64822.


There are some bills and receipts relating to the period until 2004 and a comprehensive portfolio since 2014. Invoices from GST Performance show that in recent years, the car has had bestowed upon it whatever has been required to keep it in a tip-top condition, including a cambelt change just earlier this year.


At some point, the wheels have been changed for a superb set of Wolfrace alloy wheels with Pirelli P-Zero tyres that are in an outstanding condition all round which gives the vehicle a unique and updated appearance. The paintwork remains in a very good condition and the interior is showing very little sign of wear. The original sound system has been uprated with an Alpine unit, quality speakers and a discreetly mounted amplifier.


Accompanying the vehicle is the original owners’ pack, two keys, most previous MOT certificates whilst the car was active, and an official Certificate of Vehicle Provenance from Lotus Cars confirming the specification and build date. I have undertaken an HPI check which shows no adverse information, a copy of which is on file for the benefit of the new owner.


I reserve the right to remove the current number plate , N8 LOT, but should the asking price be agreed, I will leave that on and will also include the beautiful matching indoor car cover (please see image).


So, in conclusion, a great example of a rare Lotus model that wants for nothing and is ready to go!
