Lotus Elan S2 (318)


In the range for only a relatively short time, the Lotus Elan S2 (Corgi 318) was introduced in 1965 but deleted just two years later. It featured a lifting bonnet (which opened to reveal a detailed chromed engine), a driver figure in racing overalls and helmet, plus tipping seats and side windows that could be raised or lowered. 

In keeping with our mission to replicate these wonderful 60s Corgi Toys as accurately as we can, we have copied what Corgi did back in the day. They originally included four little number stickers, so we have also produced four little stickers!!! 

In a nice period touch, a boot decal was emblazoned with Esso’s popular ‘I’ve Got a Tiger in my Tank’ advertising slogan. Corgi 318 was typically in a striking metallic blue, although a very small number were issued in white – the same colour it was given when part of the now-legendary Avengers ‘GS40’ gift set.
