Classic Car Overview

Gateway Classic Cars of Indianapolis is proud to present this 1991 Lotus Elan Type M100 for sale! This super clean car has been meticulously taken care of by the original and only owner since bought new in 1991! The Lotus M100 Elan was launched in August 1989, reviving the Elan nameplate after 14 years. A two-seater convertible sports car, designed in-house by Lotus, it featured an engine and manual transmission supplied by Izusu, and was built with the development and testing resources of GM. Around $55 million was invested in its development, more than any other car in Lotus history. Its design, featuring a fiberglass composite body over a rigid steel backbone chassis, was true to Lotus founder Colin Chapmans original philosophy of achieving performance through low weight, and the name Elan connected the car with its 1960s ancestor. This car, like stated before, is a 1 owner car with just over 48,000 miles on the clock. This Lotus was originally purchased in California and has been well maintained since. Red exterior of the car matches very well with the black leather interior. Both engine and transmission have been rebuilt. A turbocharger has also been fitted. Other features of the car that came from the factory include power windows, power brakes, power steering, and air conditioning. This fun little sportscar is a blast to drive. Just put the top down, bang throw the gears, and enjoy! This Lotus -is for sale in our Indianapolis showroom and can be seen in fantastic detail including 100+ HD photos and an HD video at www.GatewayClassicCars.com.
