Evantes are rare cars built by Vegantune who used to race and restore Lotus. When Lotus stopped making the original Elan, George Robinson was equipped to build an updated one. Tubular chassis, Ford 1700cc block, Vegantune twin cam head, 5 speed Sierra gearbox, solid driveshafts, electronic ignition, stainless exhaust system etc. Built in Spalding Lincolnshire, never offered as a kit, and finished to a high standard with walnut dash, and leather upholstery, £22,000 in 1988, less than 100 made. Only the windscreen is interchangeable with an Elan. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Evante (with thanks).

I have owned this car since 1997. It has a complete history with receipts for thousands of pounds. The work completed includes:
I overhauled all the suspension, wishbones were powder coated, callipers overhauled, new braided brake hoses, steering rack, wheel bearings, bushes, trunnions etc etc.
It has 45 DHLA carburettors which have been overhauled by JRS and re-jetted to optimum by Airey Tuning on a rolling road and dyno tested (probable 160 BHP at 7000 rpm).
The fuel tank was removed and repainted and a replacement filter fitted inside the explosafe gauze filled tank (not a small job).
More recent work includes the correctly rated Facet fuel pump, NGK Iridium spark plugs, adjustable fuel pressure regulator for Dellortos, and a Lumenition MS4 Mega Spark Ignition coil.

It has been maintained regardless of cost as the history file will show and includes a CD player (never listened to) and nice mohair hood and tonneau cover and a rare roll hoop. The electric windows are slow and would be my next job if keeping it. The finish of the fibreglass and carbon fiber is outstanding but there are some small paint imperfections.

The first 2 pictures were of the car being enjoyed at the Shere Hill climb in 2017. The mileage is under 35,00 (not 38,000). It's MOT'd until September 2020 and needs to be used and enjoyed.
