History of the Lotus Elite

The first Lotus Elite was built 1958-1963, also known as the Lotus Type 14. It featured an advanced fibreglass monocoque construction that was used throughout the entirety of the load-bearing structure of the car as opposed to just the exterior bodywork as was more common.

The resulting body was lighter, stronger, and safer for the driver in the case of a collision. Still, complete knowledge of the technical properties of fibreglass-reinforced plastic remained some years away, and the suspension connection points were frequently seen to tear out of the fibreglass framework. The Elite's weight reductions enabled it to attain sports car-like performance from a 75 hp 1.2 L Coventry Climax FWE all-aluminum inline-four engine while delivering 35 mpg.

The second Lotus Elite built from 1974-1982, also known as the Type 75 and Type 83 Elite, was a larger front-engined, rear-wheel-drive saloon car. It featured 4-wheel independent suspension on coil springs and was the first Lotus to use the 907 engine. The Lotus Elite was the first car to employ the aluminium-block 4-valve, DOHC, four-cylinder Type 907 engine, which displaced 1,973 cc and produced 155 horsepower. With this engine, the automobile accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 8.1 seconds and has a maximum speed of 125 mph.
