RHD Lotus Cortina Race Car (1964) – fantastic race provenance

  • Description

    LOTUS was commissioned by Ford to build a Cortina for motorsport. The result was one of the most successful motorsport vehicles of the 1960s, which fought legendary racing battles in particular with the GTA vehicles from Alfa Romeo. John Withmore and Jim Clark were the most famous drivers.

    LOTUS achieved the goal in a classic way with more power and less weight. More power thanks to a new cylinder head with two overhead camshafts, a specially developed chassis with a special rear axle guide. Weight savings included an aluminium differential case and hoods and doors, also made of aluminium.

    This specific vehicle was used in England until the early 1970s and then drove in historic motorsport in Germany. The ONS papers (supreme national sports authority) are available. The last race was contested in 1982 at the Nürburgring.

    We got the vehicle out of its “sleeping beauty” and made it technically ready for use again. We have deliberately preserved the authentic look with pride in the racing history.

    The overhaul of the technology includes u. a new and completely overhauled engine, the performance diagram now shows 118 KW/163 HP. The new, adjustable coil over kit comes from Reigers NL. The brakes have been completely renewed. A new safety tank, the dry sump lubrication, the semi-slicks and the rain tires, as well as the bucket seat (wing chair) etc. are available
