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.

Vintage: 1957 Lotus Elite | Drive it!
Christoph Bauer on the hunt for the classics of automotive history. Looking around Wolfburg's Zeithaus Musem, Christoph Bauer discovers one of the more innovative sports cars of the 1950s: the Lotus Elite. Just over a thousand of this model were built between 1957 and 1963. Founder of Lotus Colin Chapman ventured into new technical territory with this model. The body and the chassis were constructed completely from fiberglass parts, which were then fused together. The Elite also featured a purist interior design, paired with low-slung seating and a snappy gear shift. For more go to http://www.dw.de/dw/episode/9798/0,,15846404,00.html

1969 Lotus Elan Plus 2
Lotus Elan Manufacturer Lotus Cars Production 1962--1973 Assembly Hethel, England Body style 2-door coupe 2-door roadster Layout FR layout Engine Lotus TwinCam 1,557 cc (1.6 L) I4 Wheelbase 2,134 mm (84 in) Length 3,683 mm (145 in) Width 1,422 mm (56 in) Height 1,156 mm (46 in) Curb weight 688 kg (1,517 lb) Lotus Elan is the name of two convertible cars and one fixed head coupé produced by Lotus Cars. The original Type 26, 26R Racing version (of the S1 Elan), 36R Racing version (of the S2 Elan), 36 Fixed Head Coupe, 45 Drop Head Coupe, and the "Type 50" +2 Coupe, circa 1962 to 1975, are commonly known as the '60s Elans. The Type M100 from 1989 to 1995, is also commonly known as the 1990s Elan. The original Elan was introduced in 1962 as a roadster, although an optional hardtop was offered in 1963 and a coupé version in 1965. The two-seat Lotus Elan replaced the elegant, but unreliable and expensive to produce Lotus Elite. It was the first Lotus road car to use the now-famous Elan steel backbone chassis with a fibreglass body. At 1,500 lb (680 kg), the Elan embodied the Colin Chapman minimum weight design philosophy. Initial versions of the Elan were also available as a kit to be assembled by the customer. The Elan was technologically advanced with a DOHC 1557 cc engine, 4-wheel disc brakes, rack and pinion steering, and 4-wheel independent suspension. The "Lotus TwinCam" engine was based on Ford Kent Pre-Crossflow 4-cylinder 1498 cc engine, with a Harry Mundy-designed 2 valve alloy chain-driven twin-cam head. The rights to this design was later purchased by Ford, who renamed it to "Lotus-Ford Twin Cam". It would go on to be used in a number of Ford and Lotus production and racing models. Lotus Elan +2 Production 1967--1975 Body and chassis Body style 2-door 2+2-seater coupe Layout FR layout Engine Lotus TwinCam 1,557 cc (1.6 L) I4 Transmission 4-speed manual all-synchromesh Wheelbase 96 in (2,438 mm) Length 169 in (4,293 mm) Width 66 in (1,676 mm) Height 47 in (1,194 mm) An Elan +2 was introduced in 1967 with a longer wheelbase and two more rear seats. The Elan +2 embodied the Lotus spirit: It was a fast and agile sport coupe. It combined the performance and reliability of the Elan "Coupe" with genuine 2+2 passenger comfort. Tested maximum power: 108-126 bhp (net) (depending on the model); top speed: 120 mph (190 km/h), 0--60 mph in 7.9 seconds, 0-100 mph 21.8 seconds. 5,200 Elans +2 were made: fewer than 1,200 of these cars remain in the roads today. Their relative rarity, beautiful lines, impressive performance and practicality are the main factors for the rising interest on these cars among collectors. The Elan ceased production in 1973 and the Elan +2 in 1975, succeeded by Elite II and Lotus Eclat. An estimated total of 17,000 original Elans and Elans +2 were built. Because of its successful design and rigorous attention to cost control on the body, chassis, engine and the transmission, the Elan went on to become Lotus' first commercial success, reviving a company stretched thin by the more exotic and expensive to build Lotus Elite with fiberglass monocoque body/chassis and all-aluminium Coventry Climax engine; and enabled funding of the Lotus success in racing over the next ten years. This generation of the two-seater Elan was famously driven by the character Emma Peel on the British television series The Avengers. In 2004, Sports Car International named the Elan number six on the list of Top Sports Cars of the 1960s. The original version of the car was designed by Ron Hickman,[1] who also designed the first Lotus Europa as part of Lotus' GT40 project bid and made his fortune having designed the Black & Decker Workmate. The original Elan is usually credited as being the design inspiration for the highly successful 1989 Mazda MX-5 (Mazda Miata in North America). Two Elans were intimately evaluated by Mazda in the process of designing the MX-5. Source: Wkipedia
