LOTUS 47GT - Group 4 Historic Race Car
Genuine Lotus 47GTxx - Perfectly restored.
This unique 47’ was originally ordered from Lotus by the first Swiss owner back in 1968. It was ordered as a LHD and this car is (as far as I know) the only original factory build LHD Lotus 47.
It was ordered with the “big brakes” (Girling 3-pot calibers), and had of course originally a Lotus TC engine.
It raced in several international races it during 1968-69 in its original form.
In 1970 the engine was changed to a FVA. I have several documents on this, among other the original bench-test of the engine before it was mounted.
The car raced several races with this engine – among other an international race “OLLON-VILLARS” 28-29 August 1971 (see picture). Later it also races international with a BD-Engine.
I have all names on former owners of the car (including personal letters with info from several of them).
The car itself is fully restored with a lot of beautiful hand made parts to make it 100% as original. The body is a brand new original 47 lightweight body painted in BRG – i.e. no cracks or repairs. It’s mounted on the original and fully restored (and X-ray checked) original chassis. The FT200 gearbox is also fully restored.
No engine is not mounted yet, as I have not decided which – A Lotus TC, a FVA or a BD.
Following the car is most parts for both the BD and FVA engine (engines disassembled to check the parts).
My “problem” is that I have to let it go, as I am going to move from Denmark to South of France, where I have no space for finishing this lovely project.
Expected price is 100.000 € - including all bits and pieces.
