Our History

At Barry Ely Sports Cars we are Lotus enthusiasts and have been serving the needs of Lotus owners for over 40 years. With this amount of experience, can you really afford to go anywhere else for anything Lotus?

barry_elyWe originally started servicing several makes of sports cars which included Ferrari, Porsche, Jensen, TVR, Jaguar and Lotus. As our principal Barry Ely drove a Lotus Cortina, the Lotus side naturally grew more quickly and soon became the main stay of the company.

We have now outgrown our East London premises and have moved to the picturesque town of Maldon Essex on the river Blackwater. We are in good company too, with Hoyle-Fox (Ferrari) and JD Classics (Jaguar) also in Maldon.

This is held at The Anchor, Runsell Green, Danbury,  Essex CM3 4QZ On the third Monday of each month, all enthusiasts welcome!
