One and only M90 (X100) Lotus Elan Prototype

This is the one and only prototype for the Lotus Elan by Oliver Winterbottom in 1981.  He was brought back to design a lower end sports car to help bring the Lotus Company back to profitability.   It was referred to as the M90 but also had an internal code of X100.   This car has been stripped down to the bare chassis.  Seller states the car is complete and just needs to be put back together.
