And this Elan is also driven a lot by the main character, so this must have to be 4 star's.

it's a 1966 model, otherwise its registration would finish with a "C" instead of a "D".
(The white S2 Emma Peel used from 65 to 66 had a "C")
This S3 isn't a coupé, and it is a SE (Special Equipment) version.

S3 Convertible appears in July 1966, which makes it a 1967 YM.

I love the picture of it parked next to the Bentley. Such a huge contrast!

The first episode to be filmed for the fifth season was 'The Fear Merchants', listed here as 5.02 as it was the second episode to be transmitted. This was filmed in September 1966. Therefore, the car is only 1967 by the model year.

I remember seeing the build book for this car and its from summer '66. It's a four bolt crank, rope seal motor and it's a pre-airflow. It's a high spec standard car, not an SE, though it has knock-on wheels an sill trims, but it doesn't have wheel arch indicators or SE badges. In one episode the engine is shown, it has a blue cam cover - a standard motor, the SE's were green. I've known this car since 1984. I am a sad train spotter.

Survives after recent restoration - Link to "www.hertfordshiremercury.co.uk" . SJH 499D is a blue 1966 Lotus Elan with a numberplate first registered in Hertfordshire ... was first used on the road on 1 September 1966." - suggests a factory car from Lotus in Cheshunt. Sept 66 is a few months after S3 launch; it does not have S3 wing indicators but lots of Avengers and Elan forum chat, which seems clear that it is S3.
