Classic Car Overview
1971 Lotus Elan $39,900
"Scarab" Blue with black interior
Beautiful restored condition
This beautiful Lotus Elan was recently purchased from Richard Reventlow. Richard is the half brother of Lance Reventlow of the Scarab race car fame. Richard bought this Elan S4 about 5 years ago and then commissioned Steve Smith at Twin Cam SportCars of Sarasota, Florida to do a complete frame off restoration on this Elan.
The instruction for the restoration was to build a very nice, reliable and fast Elan incorporating updates and improvements for better performance and reliablility. The body was finished in a beautiful Blue Sikkens paint as a tribute to lance Reventlow's memorable and very successful Scarab race cars.
