Lotus Elan

First post: Elan Plus 2 model history?

PostPost by: Steve S2 » Thu Jul 14, 2011 9:59 am


I've just registered here, as I'm in the process of looking for a Plus 2. Stupid question, but can anyone please point me in the direction of a definitive model history for the Plus 2? I've looked online and have found only sketchy details. I'm trying to understand how each model came as standard and the factory / dealer fit options.

Thanks, and apologies for such a rubbish first post!

Rubbish post?? Not even close :)

Possibly the best +2 information page...and one I read inside and out prior to buying my +2.

Trevor Sparrow's Elan +2 Page:

Welcome Steve,

Best option would be to try and get a copy of the Authentic Lotus Elan and Plus 2 by Paul Robinshaw and Christopher Ross which details pretty much everything. In the meantime try here:


Which gives a basic outline of mode history with photographs.

Hope this helps



Edit: Ah Peter beat me to it!
