Racing performance from around 300bhp this is not a car for the feint hearted and is not a garage queen, I have taken it three times to Le Mans Classic and a trip to Spa and various other meetings at Silverstone and Brands Hatch during my 6 year ownership. It has been very reliable and always a thrill to drive

The body work and paint is generally in good condition but not brilliant and the trim and internals are typical of a lotus from this period, flitted with a Becker Mexico NAV head with iPhone connectivity. With some minor upgraded to trim it is a standard leather SE interior with removable sun roof.

Extensive history file, the car has been maintained by myself and others with 30yrs with of receipts and service record

Always garaged and currently in controlled storage this is a real driver’s car.

I am selling to finance a new project.

The car will be sold with 12 months MOT
