Relatively few ERA 30s were built and a significant number of those were exported – making this a rare example and a great opportunity to own this Lotus 23 replica by ERA which is in excellent condition. It is finished in Porsche Guards red with black and aluminium trim and was used by Tiger ERA Racing as their demonstrator vehicle from 2007-2009. As you can imagine it was built to a very high and exacting standard. The first owner acquired the vehicle in 2009 from Era and the car has covered a mere 1300 miles. The bill of sale is in the history folder. He carried out further improvements to the car to make it more usable for road and track and a little faster.
