Lotus Elan 2 130/S 5

Hopefully the right place for a bit of guidance.

I’m not new to Lotus but new to a potential classic purchase.

So Wondering if any wise heads know this car at Hexagon.

Lovely colour and seems very clean with a low mileage.

The +2 is a wonderful car! I really like the color combo on this one and she seems in very good shape. Maybe not a bargain but I'd say worth it.

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

Needs a new dash, it's all cracking. Lovely colour combo. Superb looking car the +2 but it needs to be spot on as that looks top money for me, as been looking at these for a while.

I came into this world screaming and covered in someone elses blood. I'll probably leave it in the same way.

Yes quite top heavy on price but a nice car, although not viewed it yet

Yes will probably need a few bits sorting and looks possibly over priced

I very much doubt the mileage is genuine. Unless it is backed up by comprehensive evidence, don't believe it.

A car like this could have been around the clock within 10 years or less from new, so any missing history treat with suspicion.

I'd certainly hope it's been around the clock, no good for a car like to just sit in a garage and a shame for POs if they never used and enjoyed it. 😉

Had a chance to view said car today while down in London.

Condition is reasonable although mileage is almost certainly not what the car has done. Either a new clock or more likely been round it.

Probably well over priced unfortunately and a large chunk of its history is missing.

Perhaps best left alone but having seen one in the flesh I think they look fantastic.

On way home popped into Allon White who have a yellow one, however out the back was their fully restored purple one. 
 

Quite an amazing looking car which would fully deserve concours condition
