LOTUS ELITE (1974 - 1982) As new safety and environmental regulations came on line Lotus anticipated the need of a car that would address these future concerns. The new Elite was a four place car with a glass-fiber body and a steel backbone chassis. Ride and handling was superb from a 4 wheel independent suspension system. Power was provided by Lotus' own 907 twin cam 4 valve per cylinder all aluminum engine. This engine was the first 4 valve production engine sold on the open market.
