1991 Lotus Elan M100 First car in U.S.

1991 Lotus Elan M100   First car in U.S.
This 1991 Lotus Elan M100 is for sale for $12,000 in Forest Hill, Maryland. It has 43,566 miles with a Clear title and is Red with a Black interior.
This car, one of only 800 M100's imported to the U.S. in 1991, was considered to be deliberately futuristic, modern and forward looking. With its turbo-charged Isuzu Lotus engine, the M100 has a listed maximum speed of 137mph. Succeeding the original 1972 Elan, the M100 was conceived as an affordable, mass-market production car for Lotus and was reviewed at the time as the "finest car Lotus had ever built" (Car and Driver). Its cost of development and production far exceeded its possible return on investment for Lotus, meant to introduce Lotus to the main-stream buyer, retaining a unique place in Lotus history.

We have documentation of this car being the first one to reach our shores. Purchased originally by the president of the Lotus Owners Club, we believe this car to have a high degree of 
provenance, being the #1 M100 car in the United States under title, a dramatic entrance. The current owner is motivated to sell. It is very-reasonably priced and, as the first car imported and owned in the US, it has some collector status.

The body and interior of the car are in excellent shape. The exhaust needs work. Added are shift cables - high performance. Also added is a short-shift kit. The convertible top has a few rips; the webbing for the bows has stretched and also needs attention. It has performance tires.
