The Elan was released by Lotus in 1962 and produced until 1975. Three versions of the car would be made, a coupe, a roadster, and a +2. The +2 version has an extended wheelbase and a full back seat. The Elan is one of the few +2's that maintains the looks of the smaller version and is still stunning. I would love to get a my hands on a Elan roadster definitely on par with the MGB and TR4 for most fun summer car.
