This is a genuine Lotus as recognised by the lotus owners club and has been used for racing prior to me purchasing the car in 2009.   I added this vehicle to my collection of race cars with the full intention of continuing to campaign it but to date I have only managed a track day where I might add it performed excellently and brought a big smile to my face.   I have to many other interests and cars to race and are going to give someone else the opportunity to have some fun in it.

Its got a new engine producing 174bhp which is exceptional for a 1600cc engine. I comes with quite a few spare tyres and a 6 spare minilite wheels.   Its ready to race and I had the car checked over by a famous company in Oxford who used to be a salon car championship driver back in the 80's. nbsp; I recently also had the underside treated with black wax seal to preserve the car and the floors internally sprayed and new aluminium door cards made and installed.

Everything works as it should both mechanical and electrical and looks the part.

 

It has a launch control system by OMEX and a straight cut gearbox which has the lovely whine all the way to top gear.

 

It has a new battery now and starts on the push of the button every time.   You will need a new set of belts as the ones in it are out of date albeit still pretty new.

I have the original side glass windows you can have. currently has Perspex side and rear windows and also a box of spare springs etc.   I have also a spare rear boot lid that can go with the sale if you remind me.

Buy and own a piece of history which will not go down in value and better still something you can have great fun in and meet lots of new interesting people.

 

You can view the car which has been in a dry and heated storage at most times to suit.   Any questions I would be pleased to answer if I can.

 

Good luck to all and happy bidding.

 

 

 

 

 


Please remember this is a race car and clearly not a show winner.
