Description

This Lotus has spent his life in France, where he has owned a car collector. The sports car was first registered in France on January 1, 1972. In addition to collecting classics, the owner also participated in historic rally events. The Lotus had also lent itself very well for that, but was never used for it in the end. However, the Lotus is very suitable for driving historical rallies due to its weight, combined with the very strong Lotus engine. This classic is equipped with the highly sought after and most powerful own Lotus Twincam Big Valve engine with 126 hp. The middle engine, coupled with a transaxle gearbox, provides a lot of power and an ideal weight distribution. The fully plastic body and the tubular frame make the car light, but at the same time also very stiff. The chassis is in a very good condition, without overdue maintenance. It seems that the frame has never had any damage. The engine runs very regularly and has very good compression on all cylinders. The gearbox shifts well and a bit hakerig which is typical for this model. The bodywork was repainted fairly recently and still requires minimal attention on a few points. It is not a competition car, but it is very neat, without cracks or cracks in the body. The paint is without damage. The interior is complete and original. To make the car perfect, some attention needs to be paid to this. The windows are undamaged. The windscreen rubber needs replacing. All in all, it is an interesting car that still needs some attention to be perfected. The values ​​of this Lotus model are around 50,000 euros for beautiful specimens. To get a good impression of the car we advise you to come to one of the viewing days.
