It’s not the kind of car that you would expect in Texas, but still this 1971 Lotus Elan Plus 2 S130 is currently in San Antonio, Texas, USA. Not for long though, as the owner has put it up for auction on Bringatrailer.com.
Since 2014 the owner has driven 12.000 miles with the car and in return invested 4.000 dollars on maintenance and repairs. For instance, new valve guides have been fitted and hardened valve seats. The previous owner had stripped the fiberglass body and had it painted in this pretty metallic blue colour.
The car is for auction now through Bringatrailer.com, the auction will end in 4 days. At this moment the bidding has reached 16.000 USD.
To get you in the right mood for bidding, here’s a short video of this Lotus accelerating through the gears.
