Condition: Seller notes:
“Car is in excellent overall condition. Lots of replacements and upgrades have been done. Paint is in overall good condition besides a few small cracks that can be seen in the images. It could use some professional detailing and a ceramic coat for protection. Spoiler could use some clearcoat. The bushings are good but the front right one would need replacing down the road. The window washer line might need replacing. Strong engine, runs good, only requires regular maintenance.”

Vehicle description

For sale here is an extremely rare car. A Lotus Elan M100. One of only 559 ever imported into the US and only for one year. This is the best handling FWD car ever made with practically no understeer.
This car is just a joy to drive. I always enjoyed taking it out on drives with the top down on Highway 1 and on windy mountain roads. This is one of the most amazing and exhilarating cars you can own and also the least expensive exotic out there.
This car has been extremely well maintained. I have done pretty much all the reliability upgrades as well as many performance upgrades. This is a CA and not a 49 state car so has no issues with smog in CA.
