Memorabilia available soon. We are curently working on putting some Lotus and EnFord collector memorabilia on the website for those collectors out there to purchase.

Lotus Memorabilia Stumbled onto this stuff during an obsolete files destruction process. Most of it is from our dealership days. At the time I thought I was a memorabilia collector, I'm not really. So we are offering this to the Lotus enthusiast who is.
Lot 1: Late 60's to early 70's dealer brochures and magazine article tear sheets on Elan, Elan Plus 2 and Europa. Highlight is a 28 page Road & Track hand-out section from their 1972 or so road test annual containing (amongst the Jags, Fords & Hondas) the road test of the Europa Twin-cam, Elan Plus 2 and Elan Sprint (with one photo of your humble servant driving [I worked at Bond Publishing at the time]). Also contains a stack of factory hand-outs entitled "The progress of glass fibre in the motor industry," about a half pound of information (some duplicates). If you're a disciple of the genre, this is for you. Lot for $25.00
Lotus Early Stuff
Lot 2: Late 70's & early 80's dealer brochures on Elite/Eclat/Esprit. Very well done. Worth having if you own one of these. Lot for $10.00
Esprit, Elite & Eclat Flyers
Lot 3: Early Turbo Esprit brochures, price lists, dealer addresses (including yours truly), magazine tear sheets of turbo road tests, spec sheets plus 2 different "Lotus total technology" very slick brochures on Lotus' engineering expertise and manufacturing. Many internal factory photos of the assembly line and machine shops. Auto companies (including Lotus) are too paranoid to do these today, fearing some secret might get out. Nice stuff. Lot for $50.00
Turbo EspritTotal Tech flyers
Lot 4: Late 80's/early 90's Lotus Brochures. Contains: Heavy card color folder containing 8 loose leaf color pages featuring '89 Esprit S3 Turbo, Turbo SE & Eclat with color charts & English price list. Another heavy card stock file containing 3 page folders on the '87 Esprit range and Eclat. File itself unfolds with several pictures and text espousing Group Lotus technical expertise. 2 V8 Esprit brochures, full color on glossy hard stock. 6 page dealer folder on the Elise introduction. Lotus Engineering's "Advanced Transport Technology" folder containing 14 hard stock leaves espousing Lotus' engineering prowess. Not a dealer brochure but a genuine industrial solicitation package offering their expertise to other car manufacturers. Titles include: Lotus Engineering, Power train Engineering, Aerodynamics NVH (acronym for noise, vibration & harshness), Electronics & Instrumentation, Styling Design, Vehicle Testing and Development, Vehicle Engineering, Active Control Tech, Composite Materials Tech, CAD & CAE Services, Project Management, Lotus Engineering Resources and Millbrook Proving Ground Facilities & capabilities. Very impressive! Lot for $200 or will consider offers for individual items.
