Reynard Opel Lotus


Reynard Formula Opel/ Vauxhall lotus. Schubel built. Modified for sprints and hillclimbs.

The non std bits!

Engine, 217hp on 45 delortos. MBE ecu and loom. Just taken from a Reynard F3 circuit car, did one hillclimb with it very smooth runner, easy starter, runs clean.

Chassis. Fuel tank is aluminium from a formula ford. Located under seat were original bag tank was. Floor is 6mm marine ply and extends out longer to rear than the STD floor, fixes to a bracket on rear damper lower mounts. Rear diffuser. Body work showing signs of it age, lots of gel coat cracks, also needs new Zeus fasteners.

Transmission. AP twin plate clutch, plates approx half worn. 4 speed, double width 1st gear, quaiffe ATB differential 9:31 cwp. Several spare ratios.

Aero. Front STD Opel lotus, rear is made up from Opel lotus side plates with Williams F1 crash structure and Honda F1 main element.

Wheels and tyres. Fronts are the STD Opel lotus rears, fitted 8.2 x20 Avon A15, the rears are ex Williams F1 fronts fitted with 10.5x 23 Avon A15. Tyres new this year have done 5 weekends on the Irish hills.

Could easily be converted back to STD spec if somebody wants to go racing. If of interest in STD form I can convert it back to STD.


Front rockers, rear rockers (one has a repair), 2 front lower wishbones, 2 drive shafts, 2 CV joints, coil pack. brake pads mintex 1155. 3 brake discs.

Have had this for 16 years and will be sorry to see it go but planning a winter in the shed on a new project and need the room!
