1991 Lotus M100 Élan For Sale
1991 M100 White Lotus Elan - $10,500 (Cupertino)
Super fun driver, 66K miles, new factory top (clear rear window), catalytic
converter, serviced at Suspension Performance Mountain View (Owner Eric
Gauthier is a former design engineer from Lotus). Smog passed recently.
Original CA car with current owner since 2001 -- I purchased this from
Fantasy Junction in Emeryville.
The Elan M100 has made its mark in history as arguably the finest handling
front wheel drive car ever. It's a bit of anomaly of course. Light weight
car designed by Peter Stevens (also designed McLaren F-1 & Jaguar XJR150).
Weighs 2200 lbs vs. BMW M3 convertible 4000. One of the most rigid chassis
of any production car ever made. Handling is outstanding.
Repairs needed are common to M100 and can be done by you. Parts are
inexpensive and available at Dave Bean Engineering. There is advice and
specific forum online -- these cars have a cult following and especially
here in the bay area.
Passenger side window -- after many repairs still needs regulator repair,
detailed at http://www.lotuselancentral.com/repair/windowfix.htm or Google
Driver's side headlamp motor -- needs repair -- parts are inexpensive,
repair detailed at
One rear back/up bulb
SIR light on -- needs dealer re-set
Driver window trim (outer) needs replacement -- have part
Paint generally good but small areas of clear coat are bare
It is a very nice and easy driver for California. Of course it is great
fun in the summer with the top down but with the newly installed
convertible top you will not have to worry in the winter.
I am selling due to health issues. I have enjoyed many great hours in this
1969 Lotus Elan - Jay Leno's Garage
In the late 1940s, engineer and RAF pilot Colin Chapman decided to utilize
the experience he gained in the skies on the ground, by building a racecar
in his girlfriend's garage. While still holding down his day job, Chapmen
begged, borrowed and bartered to create his prototype, which he entered in
a time trial as an afterthought.

Me and My... Lotus Elan Sprint
This restored Lotus Elan Sprint belongs to Mike Mee, who bought it in 1979
and used it as a daily driver. Nowadays it is only out when the sun shines,
but it still makes him smile. Us too.
