UK Domestic # 026 of 99 built

Car & Classic ad September 2012

A time warp car,a real sports car, not run since mid 1980s and dry stored since.Original in virtually all respects and in stunning condition. Will require re-commissioning and not running. Near perfect original interior, original chassis with only light surface corrosion, no signs of accident damage. Bodywork is really outstanding.

These cars are very scarce in this condition as most have been shunted or damaged in someway or lack the original interior which is absolutely irreplaceable. This is No 026 of approximately 100 built for the UK market to commemorate the drivers and constructors F-1 Championship of 1979.Probably fewer than 50 remain in any shape at all. Absolutely a handful survive as originals and are rapidly appreciating partly due to the huge interest in the classic car market by investors, also because of the very high profile the Black and Gold Lotus cars have in F-1.

The car having been dry stored will be moved to PNM Engineering for re-comissioning.The price will therfore rise commensurate with works conducted.Initially this will involve getting the engine running with a full service.
