The Lotus Elan is a British sports car that was produced by Lotus Cars from 1962 to 1973. It was designed by Lotus founder Colin Chapman and is considered a classic example of British sports car design.
The Elan was powered by a 1.6-liter inline-four engine that produced up to 118 horsepower. It also featured advanced suspension and braking systems, with four-wheel independent suspension and disc brakes on all four wheels.
The Lotus Elan was known for its exceptional handling and performance, with a top speed of up to 120 mph and acceleration from 0 to 60 mph in as little as 7 seconds. Its lightweight fiberglass body and advanced suspension system made it a popular choice among sports car enthusiasts of the time.
