Lotus Elite Sports Coupe

24/5/2012. Haynes Motor Museum Sparkford Somerset.

7177 JH 1959 Lotus Elite Sports Coupe with monocoque glass fibre chassis devised by the late, great Colin Chapman.
The all round independent suspension was based on the Formula 2 cars layout. Girling disc brakes, inboard at the rear was years ahead of its time.
1.2 litre engine with 5 bearing crank mated to a close ratio MG gearbox.
The monocoque was notoriously difficult to build and caused Lotus heaps of problems.
