History of the Lotus Elite

Lotus Elite Tyres

The first Lotus Elite was built 1958-1963, also known as the Lotus Type 14. It featured an advanced fiberglass 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 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.
