Lotus Elan +2

This Elan +2 is a friend’s daily driver and we have carried out a lot of work on it since he acquired it in 2006. At the start we did some engine and mechanical work to make it reliable for a daily commute. Later we repaired the cracked fibreglass body and resprayed it in the current gunmetal grey. The latest job was to replace the aging original chassis with one removed from a low mileage spares car many years ago. Its a delightful car to drive, sharp handling but comfortable with Colin Chapman’s mastery of suspension and ‘added lightness’ still an eye opener today.
