Story

On consignment from the owner.

Unless you have owned one, you will never have driven a car like the M100 Lotus Elan - because there has never been a car like it!

What other car offers supercar performance, world-class handling, modern material design and build, hand-crafted construction, reliability, convertible fun, excellent efficiency and mileage, and gorgeous styling? NONE !!

The Lotus Elan M100, launched in 1989, was a two-seater, convertible sports car designed by Peter Stevens and produced by Lotus whilst under the ownership of General Motors.

The M100 Elan's cornering performance was undeniable. On release the Elan was described by Autocrat magazine as the quickest point to point car available.

The Elan M100 has made its mark in the history as arguably the finest handling front wheel drive car ever made. Altogether 3,855 Elan's were built between November 1989 and July 1992, including 129 normally aspirated (non-turbo) cars. 559 of them were sold in the U.S.

A limited edition of 800 series 2 (S2) M100 Elans were produced by Bugatti between June 1994 and September 1995 when it was discovered that enough surplus engines were available to make this possible. All series 2 cars were turbocharged.

The 1992-1995 M100 Elan uses a 1,588 cc DOHC Isuzu 4XE1 Engine which produces 162 bhp and 0-60 time of 6.5s and a top speed of 137 mph.

The car featured here is a 1998. After the final production run of the Elan in 1995, Kia Motors bought all the rights to the Elan from Lotus in order for Kia to manufacture its own version. Outwardly, the Kia version looks almost identical to the original. The most obvious difference is the different taillights, designed by Kia, in place of the Renault Alpine rear lights of the original Lotus version.

From 1996 to 1999, Kia Motech (Kia Motor-technology) produced the car (in Ansan, South Korea) as the Kia Elan for the Korean market, using a 151 hp (113 kW) 1.8 L T8D engine instead of the Isuzu 1.6 turbo-charged unit. In the Japanese market, the car was sold as the Vigato. This car was imported to BC from Japan.
