The Lotus Elan was presented at the London Motor Show and produced from 1962 to 1973. Designed by Colin Chapman, the Elan featured a backbone frame, a fiberglass body, all-disc brakes, rack and pinion steering, and all-coil independent suspension. The result was a very light advanced sports car with good performance and unmatched handling capabilities. The Lotus Elan was available as the two-seater roadster convertible with an optional hardtop, but also in a coupe model and a Plus two, with four seats. The model was sold assembled or in kit form to avoid high taxes in Britain. Each evolution of the Elan brought more power and nicer appointments. The 1970 Lotus Elan featured a one-piece walnut wood dashboard and a 126-hp, four-cylinder engine.
