In the same ownership since 1975 and with a history portfolio extending to two volumes, the vehicle is presented in outstanding, original condition. The original specification includes a Big Valve Lotus Twin Cam engine with a five speed gearbox and Brand Lotus wheels with Goodyear NCT 3 tyres. The original paintwork is in gleaming black, with gold coach lines which, along with the oatmeal interior, makes this vehicle the most sought after in terms of its colour combination. A regular attendee of Lotus related events, its accolades include numerous concours wins whilst in the current owners' custody. The history file includes many mementos from these attendances, dating back to the early 1980s. For example, the vehicle was present at... The Lord Mayors' celebrations in Mario Andretti's championship year (1978)The Tribute to Colin Chapman parade at the Silverstone British Grand Prix (1983) Presented to Clive and Hazel Chapman at the 40th Anniversary of Hethel celebration in 2007 and complimented by them on its' outstanding condition. Used by Stratton Motor Company at the showroom launch of the new generation Europa (2007) Maintained over the years, regardless of cost, by a local Lotus expert, the vehicle has benefitted from regular maintenance and upkeep, as and when required. The history portfolio includes every MOT certificate, bills and receipts for items including the fitment of a genuine galvanised Lotus chassis and an interior retrim. An annual service has recently been undertaken, with no faults reported. A pocket size record book is also provided, logging the complete history of the vehicle, even down to the petrol fill-ups. The vehicle has regularly been used as a benchmark vehicle when re-sourcing Europa components by the factory and regularly requested by Lotus Cars to participate in historic events, including 40th and 50th anniversary celebrations. Presented in outstanding condition, with a long MOT and in need of nothing, this important part of Lotus history now awaits another caring owner to drive away and immediately enjoy. It is of course, tax exempt. Please be quick as it won't be here for long!
