1965 Lotus Elan in 26R Specification with original Swiss papers.



This car is based on a series 2 Lotus Elan built 1965 and sold to Switzerland with original swiss papers.

In Switzerland, Urban Faessler transformed it to a racing elan, sold it to Plinio Haas, the father of Felix Haas, who has raced for many years in the German HTGT, Spa six hours etc. In the European GT Championship, the car battled for many years with the Kumschick Elans for first or second place. 

In 2014 the chassis was replaced by a new reinforced one and since then it has completed just 12 races. 

The engine was built by Bruno Schaffner and 2015 it was checked by Bemani with 184 din-ps, please see dyno sheet. Since then it has not been raced.  In 2017 it has had new HTP papares and a new fire extinguisher system for the engine and fueltank. 


There are lots of spares available including every possible rear axle and a new spare engine from Bruno Schaffner with zero hours use. These parts are not included in the selling price but by separate negotiation.


The car is located in Switzerland for viewing.
