These two-tone, mechanically upgraded versions of the Elan were introduced to improve sales near the end of their production. They are very popular among collectors and vintage racers for their quickness and agility. The small four-cylinder engine received a large-valve head, hi-lift cams and a higher compression ratio to deliver 126 horsepower. At just over 1,500 pounds, that was more than enough spunk to make them fun to drive. The Elan Sprint would do 0-60 in 6.7 seconds and could reach a top speed of 121 mph. Many say the Mazda Miata is modeled after the Lotus Elan. Pit the two against one another in Forza 4and [sic] find out if there is anything to compare.

The 1971 Lotus Elan Sprint is a RWD roadster by Lotus featured in every Motorsport main series title as well as in Forza Horizon and Forza Horizon 4.

In Forza Horizon, it is featured as a Unicorn car.

Trivia

  • A bug in the initial release of Forza Motorsport 2 gave the Lotus Elan a performance advantage over other vehicles, allowing players to put in extraordinarily fast times. A patch was released to downgrade the car and Turn 10 Studios began wiping scoreboard times and online rankings for players who had:
    • A top 5,000 scoreboard time using a manual transmission vehicle set before 25 August 2007.
    • A sub-10 second lap time.
    • A top 2,000 scoreboard time using a Lotus Elan.[2]
