The Lotus Elite Type 14 is a lightweight 2-seater coupe that was unveiled at the London Motor Show in 1957. The car had an innovative fiberglass construction, in which a body of glass-reinforced plastic replaced the previously separate chassis and body components. The engine was located in the front and drove the rear axle. The Elite Type 14 was powered by an all-aluminum 1.2-liter I4 engine with 75 hp (56 kW), which was mated to a 4-speed manual transmission.
