Introduced in the early 1960s, the Lotus Elan was produced until 1973 for the two-seater coupe and roadster models, and until 1975 for the Plus 2. Colin Chapman, whose main concern was to create a simple and light sports car that would compete with heavier and more luxurious sports cars of the era, designed the model. The result was a great success and the Lotus Elan was a serious threat to its competitors on the track. Although its 1.6-liter engine delivered less power126 hpthan rivals such as the Jaguar E-type and the AC Cobra, its 0 to 60 mph was rated under 7 seconds thanks to a quick and smooth gearbox and its low weight of 1550 lbs. The 1972 Lotus Elan was known as the Sprint model and followed the S4.
