1991 Lotus Elan M100 TurboSellingmy last M100 (had over 5 of them over the last 10 years).This is a rare silver painted Lotus Elan M100 Turbo. 1991 was the onlyyear they were imported to the US.I have owned it for 3 years as a project andput over $7K into it. The car is still not perfect but a good driver. it has a little over 75K milesnow. Fresh silver paint with clear-coat, but there is 3 inch pilling in the right side door. Interior is proper for age. Faded and slightly cracked but not bad for a 26-year old car and can easily be revived. Carpets are good. Dash is prefect. The soft top needs some attention. it closes but LH latch is twisted (still locks), and the cloth is pilling of frame at somepoints. Rear window is fogged but still usable. The car starts runs and drives. Engine sounds good but may need a small tune up. Transmission shifts good. Lights, wipers, turn signals, heater, blower,and even AC work (but AC does not blow cold air). RH window does not close (it closed 4 weeks ago). It is a common issue and could just a simple fix. Hazard switch does not work. The fuel sender unit is not working so the fuel gauge always shows empty. I have not checked every single button but most major things are in order. Wheels are scuffed but true and good. Tires are old. Radio does not work. Title is clear.
The car is sold AS WHERE IS. It is notperfect but with no morethan $1,000-1,500 youcan fix all the above flaws and drive it for a long time.
