This car has been built by foremost Lotus 47 expert, Jeff Spencer, with all new/original parts to the precise original 1967 Lotus 47 factory specification; this is EXACTLY as a car would have left the factory in 1967, down to very last tiny detail… even to the glove compartment handle! Short of traveling back in time, this is the only Lotus 47 in existence that you will find in this specification and condition. It is completely immaculate, ‘as new’ in every respect and as perfect as it can be; a true ‘labour of love’ built with unparalleled attention to detail. This car doesn’t just ‘look’ correct – it *is* correct, in every respect.
This car has undergone a full HTP (Historic Technical Passport) assessment and has the documentation to show that it fully complies with every aspect of the original 1967 Lotus 47GT Homologation. Therefore this ‘museum quality’ car could of course be raced in historic classes; only the appropriate safety devices (to latest Appendix K standards) would need to be fitted by the purchaser to obtain full Historic Technical Passport. This car also has a current V5 and 1967 registration number (E reg) so you could even use this car on the road (though it has never actually been used this way to date).
The car has been allocated a ‘continuation’ chassis number of 201 and has been inspected by the Historic Lotus Register Registrar, John Bolding, who is of course a world-renowned expert in all things Lotus 47. Whilst this car is obviously not ‘original’, John has confirmed this car as being a true and accurate Lotus 47GT in every respect.
This car has been in Jeff’s private collection for a number of years, but of course remains in immaculate ‘as new’ condition throughout.
