Lotus 23B for sale. Sensible offers invited for this excellent example.

This beautiful recreation of a Lotus 23B was built from all new parts in 2011 and registered as a brand new car. This was the last car produced by Mamba Motorsport. built for the owner of the company and incorporating all of the knowledge gained from building. racing and driving these cars since 1997.

Fitted with a Mamba Motorsport 2. 0 Duratec 230bhp engine and Porsche transaxle to give over 400bhp/tonne the performance is simply stunning.

Some background.
The car was designed by Lee Noble as follow-up to his excellent Ultima sportscar and uses a very similar chassis design with a fully triangulated spaceframe. There are well over 100 of the Noble / Mamba 23 cars racing and being driven around Europe and the USA. their popularity due to the excellent handling characteristics and the availability of parts. The Mamba C23R uses a new Duratec (supplied from Ford. modified for racing and rebalanced to give a safe 230bhp) mated to a new Porsche (VAG) transaxle.

This car is eligible for multiple sports car racing series including SRGTC but remains a smooth and compliant drive on the road should you wish to drive down to classic Le Mans for the weekend. The sister car of Ken Culverwell (see photo 4) has achieved great success including class wins at Spa. Brands Hatch. Donington Park and more.

I am listing this car on behalf of my father. For more information please contact me through ebay's email system or telephone outside office hours.

With a build cost far exceeding the asking price. this is a unique opportunity to own a very special car. Viewings/tests are available by appointment in South Oxfordshire. This is a private sale of a used car with no warranty expressed or implied. Having said that we love these cars and always do our best to provide help. advice and support to other owners.

The car is fully road-legal and so can be driven away. however we also have a covered transporter for our race cars so we can help with delivery to further afield if required.

Please. no more tyre-kickers or scammers.
