This 1966 Lotus Elan, owned by Jay Leno, is probably one of the coolest, most thoughtfully built of its kind in the world. It’s not stock, having been re-engineered when the need called for it.
Meant as a track-day racer with no expenses spared in its creation, the result is simply astonishing, and arguably one of Jay’s best and most unique (sports) cars. One thing is definitely clear: there’s no other Elan like it in the world, with this much care and attention rubbed into it by none other than racecar builder (and former driver) Jim Hall.
Detailing the mods bestowed upon it would be akin to spoiling a good movie, so do scroll down and check out the full-length video below. It’s just over 21 minutes long, but it flies by rather quickly, yet again confirming what Einstein said about time, though, not if you’re into trains…
