For Sale by RMD

We are pleased to offer for sale this gorgeous and very quick RHD Lotus Elan S2 which was bought by the current owner in 2000 and was subsequently completely build-up to the latest 26R specification.
Upon completion, the car has been raced very successfully at both the national and international level up to 2012. The owner then switched to racing a 2 litre prototype which is why the Elan is now up for sale.
The engine has been built by John Smirtwait delivering 190 bhp and only has 10 hours of running since its last rebuild. The other specs are as follows:
Strengthened chassis
Magnesium gearbox and differential casing (with LSD)
Magnesium center lock wheels
Alu bell-housing
New magnesium uprights with original alu calipers
Close ratio magnesium gearbox
Fuel cell 60 litres (valid until 2016) with separate catch-tank and pumps
KONI adjustable shocks all round
Renewed electrics
Large core alu radiator
1” front anti-roll bar+ 3/4” fr. a-r bar
TTR half-shafts
Lexan side and rear screens
The car comes with extensive spares which include a spare set of wheels and spare diff. with LSD 4.1-ratio.
Given that this Elan racer sat idle for a few years, the following would need to be done to bring it to race ready condition : go through the car with renewal of fluids and update belts and fire system.
A new, 2015 FIA HTP comes with the car (see 1st page below). Road registration can be easily done by its new owner as old title/registration document exists.
This excellent Elan S2/26R is located in Belgium where it can be inspected subject to appointment...... for more information visit www.RMD.be
