1959 Lotus Elite

1959 Lotus Elite Type 14 - 714 HJH

Our magnificently restored and very rare Elite has been owned by the same person for 50 years.

It is a matching numbers car and the subject of a fastidious and fully documented body and mechanical restoration. This restoration was completed by the renowned specialists Paul Matty and the car presents in perfect order with exacting attention to detail. The engine was restored to return 100bhp fed through twin DCOE Weber carbs by Coventry Climax expert John Smirthwaite. 

A fully documented £40k+ restoration sees the car sitting on new chrome wire wheels with stunning silver paint on the button and ready to go. 

The car drives beautifully. So light, nimble and responsive and very quick too. It’s a drive that makes you feel alive and part of the car. A really rare engaging experience. I ‘get’ this car and love it! 

This car ticks all the right boxes. Long term ownership, matching number, restored by the ‘right people’ with running in miles only.   A rare opportunity to own arguably the most stylish and beautiful Lotus ever made.
