1960 saw the introduction of the 85hp Elite SE, which ditched the original MG-built gearbox with one from ZF. The Elite also took part in motorsport events such as Le Mans and the Nurburgring
. At the former, Elites actually won their class a total of six times. This 1960 Lotus Elite, up for sale on eBay Motors, is unquestionably one of the best examples out there. Not only does it have just 33,000 miles on the odometer, but the fiberglass, original paint and interior are all in amazing condition. It was originally sold by Lotus to a guy named Jay Chamberlain, a race car driver and the West Coast Lotus distributor.
