Directly developed by Lotus Components Ltd. from the 46 Europa production car, the 47 was a pure competition car built for homologation in Group 4 as a Competition Sports Car competing at events throughout Europe in the late 60's including Le Mans 24 and the BOAC 6 hours at Brands Hatch. Provenance: Lotus 47/GT/76F manufactured by Lotus Components Ltd. and delivered to Paul Kerridge in April 1968.

In 2012, after 40 years the car was repatriated to the UK and delivered to Classic Performance Engineering with a view to developing and preparing the car for historic competition. Martin Greeves and the current owner tested the car and entered a successful Guards Trophy race at Oulton Park last year and stands today in 100 percent race ready condition!
