Alfa Romeo C43 F1 Show Car

£ 45,000

Lotus Elan S3


The car traveled from England to the USA where it was race prepared by a Californian specialist according to Tony Ingram’s options. Around 2016, the car was imported to Germany but kept in a garage (the German buyer was to high and could not use it!!).

I bought it in 2019 and, due to pandemic crises, never race it. Nonetheless, asked my friend and engine builder in UK, to make me a new engine, and also made some overall improvements and a brand-new electric wire system.

For personal reasons, I don’t intend to go ahead with the project.

All the car has a complete racing focused build from a bare Tony Thompson chassis, and is in pristine condition. After the complete build it only had a shakedown in Estoril Circuit last year. It’s ready to run.

Overall, the car is immaculate, the polyester body is crack-free. The interior is fresh, has a Tillett B6 Screamemr Seat (valid until 2026), Tony Thompson removable steering wheel, Stack instruments, 6 points Harness (valid until 2027), etc.   

The engine is new. Made with the idea to get the most out of it, but also to run it safely. Custom Wet/Dry sump system with modified dry sump, Aluminum Radiator, 45 DCOE Weber’s. Wiring is completely rewired and new.

The Suspension has AVO Adjustable perch shocks, Dave Bean Spring (2 ½” x 8” x 175# front
2” x 10” x 250# rear), Adjustable Rear Sway bar, Rear Wishbones adjustable for toe and camber
• Salisbury LSD (new), 3.9 gear, CV Drive Shaft conversion kit.
