Elan for Sale in Dubai only 6,000 Miles

A friend has just sent me some pics of this lovely 1973 car that is currently up for sale in Dubai.

Only 6,000 miles from new.

1973 Lotus Elan Sprint | Tomini Classics

No indication of price, but if it was the soft top version. I would probably be posting pictures of it in my garage.

^ Sure is. Lotus didn't offer those from the factory unlike TVR. I suspect it won't affect value any for such low miles.

My first thought was jay Leno who has a light blue Elan. He is really enamored by it.
The second thought was the profile looks almost like the origiNAL Miata.

The windshield wipers even look original, which they likely are since the car
is located in a desert.
