This beautiful Lotus Elan was recently purchased from Richard Reventlow. Richard is the half brother of Lance Reventlow of the Scarab race car fame. Richard bought this Elan S4 about 5 years ago and then commissioned Steve Smith at Twin Cam SportCars of Sarasota, Florida to do a complete frame off restoration on this Elan.

The instruction for the restoration was to build a very nice, reliable and fast Elan incorporating updates and improvements for better performance and reliablility.
