Genuine Racer

To see, go to: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk

December 2010

This is the real deal that all those die cast replicas on Ebay are made after. This is the genuine racer.

Genuine Lotus Esprit GT300 GT2 Racer, built by the Lotus Factory - Motorsport Division - at a cost of 200,000GBP.

Believed to be the last one in existence.

440bhp at 6,000rpm with a dead flat torque curve. 8,000+rpm redline with estimated 550bhp. 917kg.

Fully restored in every aspect to concours condition in the 1993 LeMans livery. Ready to race. Nothing to spend. This is the car that created the homologation special road going Esprit Sport 300. Comes with a great deal of brand new spares such as wheels, tyres, body panels, pistons, cams, etc. Spare engine.

This particular car held the fastest lap record at Bathurst driven by Larry Perkins and it won the Australian GT championships in 1994 driven by Brad Jones. Car is very well known internationally. The car has full race books and it qualifies for GT Revival and GT90 series in Europe, which include LeMans. I have full, very detailed history. It is very well known in Australia and internationally.

In Australia, it has been valued between AU$300,000 and AU$400,000. In Europe, it has been valued for 200,000+ euro. It is currently insured for AU$300,000. I had a German dealer offer a straight swap for it with a XJ220, but unfortunately I can't import it into Australia.

Lots more information and photos on this car available at these links:





Absolutely any inspection welcome. I can put you in touch with the Lotus factory people that built it, commisioned it and restored it.
Any questions you may have will be answered with verifiable information.Car is advertised in other places too, so I reserve the right to cancel the auction.Reserve is MUCH lower than valuation.

Secure insured transport to anywhere in the world can be organised at the buyer's expense.
