FIA LOTUS CORTINA £73,000 FOR SALE
Built to the higest standard no expense spared
1965 Lotus Cortina Mk1 race car with FIA passport valid until 31/12/2026 for sale.
Complete with Lotus V5C this superbly prepared car has been a front runner with podium finishes including last time out in the ultra competitive U2TC at the Silverstone Classic.
The engine has completed one race only since a full refresh and has been recorded producing 158BHP at the wheels which equates to approximately 180BHP at the flywheel!
Built in 2016 from an acid-dipped airflow shell it has subsequently run competitively with the U2TC and HSCC in the UK and at Spa.
This is a fully sorted ‘A-bracket’ car with superb neutral handling and many upgrades including specialist suspension and drivetrain modifications to improve both performance and reliability. These upgrades include a BTB exhaust system, uprated front struts by AHR and AST rear dampers.
The shell is seam welded throughout and fitted with a Custom Cages T45 roll cage. It also benefits from a bespoke wiring loom and a 50 litre fuel tank that will comfortably last an hour long race.
The gearbox is a straight-cut unit with aluminium bellhousing and tailshaft built by AHR in accordance with FIA regulations.
Included is a comprehensive spares package including two extra limited differentials, two front anti-roll bars and six spare wheels.
