This wonderfully presented Elan is the desirable 2S 130 specification and was meticulously restored over a 4 year period including a soda blasted body repainted in its original Lotus Yellow colour, a Spyder chassis and all bright work re-chromed. On top of this all rubber seals and trim were renewed also and a new Spyder glazing system fitted.
The Lotus Twin Cam engine was fully rebuilt and head reworked to allow lead free petrol to be used, new clutch assembly and fully balanced flywheel but most significantly the Dellorto carburettors were replaced with an Emerald K3 ECU based system and Jenvey throttle bodies. Upon fitment the car was rolling road tested by Emerald to ensure optimum performance and drivability and makes this Elan eminently useable yet still retaining the character of the Twin Cam engine.
The upgrades did not stop there however. An uprated fuel pressure system was installed, radiator and heater element were enhanced, fully rebuilt 4 speed gearbox rebuilt by SPC Racing, differential rebuilt by Road and Race,
Mick Miller CV joints, TTR coil springs fitted and brakes and steering rack stripped and rebuilt.
Attention then turned to the interior and electrical/wiring system. The leather interior was fully re-trimmed, new carpets and headlining fitted and a new dashboard was fitted.
The wiring system has been fully updated and improved with fanatical attention to detail plus extra security features and a battery isolator function fitted.
Freshly Mot’d and serviced this Elan Plus 2S 130 is ready to be used and enjoyed.
