1970 Lotus Elan S4, first start attempt after 5-year total restoration
5 years ago, buddy Sean took his Lotus Elan S4 (The "Brotus") off the road for a water-pump replacement. He then embarked on an epic total restoration mission on the car. Although it has (frustratingly!) taken him five times longer than anticipated, here we see the very first attempt to start the completely rebuilt engine. This really IS the first attempt at starting, with two batteries, to supply the required amps to turn over a very tight motor. The smoke you see in the video is simply some paint burning off the Exhaust manifold. Great job Sean - and I can't wait to blow the doors off the Elan with my 911 race car, out at Ruapuna Raceway this summer. :)
