Lotus Classic Car Specialist

Established by Mike Taylor over 20 years ago, Lotusbits is very much an enthusiast run, independent Lotus classic car specialist with a passion for the 900 engine “Wedges”.

Lotusbits have quite probably the largest selection of second hand Excel, Eclat, Elite parts available anywhere in the world. Body parts, chassis, engines/gearboxes and even those hard to find trim parts we probably have them somewhere!

We also have a comprehensive selection of new parts for the Esprit, Excel, Elite, Eclat, Sunbeam Lotus, Jensen Healey and Elan M100.

Due to Mike’s engineering background we provide a wide range of refurbished parts and also design and re-manufacture parts that are no longer available. Many of these parts are tried and tested on our Rally cars.

The workshop can help customers with anything from a routine service to a full restomod.

Lotusbits also have a full time engine builder onsite, rebuilding engines from standard specification, 2.5 LB stroker engine for road use to full race going engines.

Whatever your classic Lotus needs we are here to help and offer advice.

Engine Rebuilds

Much has been learned in the development of the 900 series Lotus engines from Lotusbits Rallying experience. Whether you wish your engine rebuilt to original specification or are tempted by our upgraded Lotusbits 2.5litre 250bhp road going engine, (Rally engines develop 320bhp), our approach and attention to detail, whether building a standard or racing engine is the same
