Lotus Elan Sprint DHC, 1973.   Lovely example in rare monotone Carnival Red

Lotus Elan Sprint DHC, 1973.   Lovely example in rare monotone Carnival Red as confirmed by the Lotus Archivist.   A genuine drop head sprint with all matching numbers.  This is the 30th from last domestic drop-head Sprint and the second to last in the single colour Carnival Red.   Goes really well and has a lovely original interior.  Correct late Colin Chapman steering wheel.  Superb lively engine with a throaty rasp and spot-on oil pressure and it runs at the correct temperature continuously.  A really great Elan to drive.    Serviced and MOTโ€™d although MOT test exempt, as it the road tax fee.
