Lo­tus Elan Sprints run­ning clear of sib­lings

Classic Cars (UK) - - Chasing Cars -

One of the all-time great driv­ers’ cars, the Elan Sprint is al­ways find­ing new fans but own­ers tend to hang on to them. In turn, that’s once again driv­ing up val­ues, which are now way above those for reg­u­lar non-sprint ex­am­ples of the light­weight icon.

As if to prove the point, UK Sports Cars is cur­rently of­fer­ing a nicely pre­sented yellow drop­head that the last owner kept for 31 years. With no im­mi­nent needs, it car­ries an ask­ing price of £48,995, and that’s pretty much where the mar­ket is for good ones now.

If it seems a lot for a small, glass­fi­bre Lo­tus, don’t worry. Not only will one drive down a coun­try road make you in­stantly for­get any log­i­cal fi­nan­cial rea­son­ing – buy well now and you will also never strug­gle to find the next buyer when the time to part does come.
