KIA Elan! What’s That, Most People say Never Heard of It,
All LHD Built for the Japanese and Far East Market Only.
ONE OF ONLY 820 BUILT, THE ONLY KNOWN ONE IN THE UK AT THIS PRESENT TIME.
LOTUS WERE IN SERIOUS FINANCIAL TROUBLE, KIA PURCHASED THE ELAN RIGHTS FROM COLIN CHAPMAN FORM LOTUS IN 1995 AND BUILT THE VEHICLE ALMOST IDENTICAL, OTHER THAN THE BADGE & ENGINE REPLACING THE 1.6 LITRE WITH A 1.8 HIGH SPRINT ALSO CHANGING THE REAR LIGHTS.
THIS VEHICLE WAS ORIGINALLY KEPT BACK FROM SALE BY KIA KOREA FOR THEMSELVES, THEN KIA HAD FINANCIAL PROBLEMS AND WERE TAKEN OVER BY HYUNDAI, NO MORE WERE BUILT.
THIS VEHICLE WAS EXPORTED TO KIA UK, STORED FOR MANY YEARS AND NOT USED IN THE WET CONDITIONS
THE CAR IS A BIG ATTRACTION AND YOU WON’T PARK NEXT TO ANOTHER ONE AT CLASSIC SHOWS.
MUCH BETTER BUILD QUALITY THAN LOTUS AND DRIVES AND HANDLES VERY WELL.
