Lotus Elan S2 For Sale

PostPost by: Kowalken1 » Sat Aug 21, 2021 10:05 pm

Up for sale is my latest project. I’m having great fun driving it but as I get older I am finding I want something a little safer.
Lots of pictures on Dropbox:

The car was in a field for 14 years less engine when my friend pitched it up. He worked on it for 30 years very sporatically. I convinced him to sell it to me!
1 liter Suzuki engine with a 5 speed behind it.
Rear end rebuilt at a local transmission shop. All bearings, hoses, rotoflex, etc etc replaced
Adjustable coil overs all around.
Look over the pictures an PM. If you are interested
I have $15k and over 1,000 hours tied up. Looking for offers over $20k
Thanks,
Ken

Straight swap for my project?

Just joking, which specific Suzuki engine is that one? I am still mulling over which one to put in MY project though I doubt a 1L bike engine will come close to doing the trick. :D

Nothing but what is shown.
The engine is out of a geo metro which is made by Suzuki. It is connected to a 5 speed samurai transmission, they bolt right up
Might be a good choice. There is also a 1.3 liter 4 cylinder version

So that is the 3 cylinder in there?

Given the rest of the photos of the car this would be a great buy for someone but if it was me (can't be, see project :D ) I would go something other than that engine - not a criticism because the rest of the car is done so well - just a muse as much as anything.

Stock twincam in that thing would make it fly!

Yes it would
The car came without an engine and I have wanted to put one of those engines in a Lotus for 20 years. The $10k price for a twin cam I feel is crazy. This engine tuned could easily make 100hp. But the car is exactly as I wanted it. Lots of other engines that would work but none would make the sweet song of this engine.

Thanks but the car is no longer for sale. I am setting it up to auto cross next year on slicks.

If you want to be unbeatable the Suzuki engine you want is the Hayabusa....

Thanks
That would be a good choice. I plan to turbo the metro up to around 130 hp. Should be pretty good. Some guys have pushed these to 200 hp+
