Lotus Elan Sprint 1973


The Sprint was the last version of Colin Chapman’s fabled Elan sold between 1971 and 1973, following the Series 1, 2, 3 and 4. Essentially, the Sprint was an up rated S4, fitted with a more powerful version of the Lotus twin cam engine. Though there are some who see the Sprint as a tuned S4, there is no doubt that Lotus intended it to be a separate version of the Elan (an “S5” in effect) and that it was marketed as such. The Sprint has become one of the more sought after Elan types and they are relatively few in number.

This particular car is believed to be the very last Sprint Drop Head Coupe built by the Factory according to Graham Arnold of the Lotus Elan Sprint Register. It’s finished in Carnival Red over Cirrus White with a black leather interior, and fitted true Minilite Wheels not look alikes and a new hood.
The car is in simply stunning condition having had thousands of pounds spent on a full interior, exterior and mechanical refurb in 2014, and its covered a mere 700 miles since. The paint finish is the finest I’ve ever seen on a Glass fibre body. (The paint work alone cost almost £8000)
The history file is huge, and dates right back to 1974. In total the car has covered only 33000 miles from new and as I mentioned previously has covered a mere 700 miles since being rebuilt. This car has had simply the best maintenance programme of just about any car we’ve ever had.


If you are looking for a Lotus Elan Sprint, then this car has to be the prize find of the year. It’s condition, It’s history, and the fact it’s believed to be the last DHC made makes it a unique car, and one certain to be an excellent investment over the coming years.
