Very rare full history car – a “movie star of the ’50s”!
The third of six built by the Lotus Engineering Company Ltd, combining the genius of marque founder Colin Chapman’s lightweight chassis design and Frank Costin’s superb aerodynamics. Powered by the favoured 1971cc Bristol six-cylinder engine, the disc-braked beauty was bought by charismatic West London motor trader Cliff Davis and debuted at Brands Hatch on July 9, 1955. Class second in the final Goodwood Nine Hours (Davis/Reg Bicknell). Recommissioned for the 2019 Goodwood Members’ Meeting, this full history car is eligible for the most prestigious events, including the Goodwood Revival Meeting, GP Historique de Monaco, RAC Woodcote Trophy and GTSCC.
