2017 Replica Lotus XI SOLD

|It is with some reluctance and sadness that I have come to the conclusion that I need to offer this well known car for sale. The car has been on show at the last 2 Westfield speed weekends at Blyton Park, and was on display in the WSCC marque at the 2018 National Kitcar Show at Stoneleigh.|
This is probably just about the best spec.'d Westfield XI in the Country, and just about every part of the car was either new or professionally reconditioned at the time of its construction. It was first registered in July of 2017, and has covered less than 1200 miles since completion. This is a rare opportunity to purchase an XI which is built to a standard which should enable reliable fun motoring, and is fast enough and with road holding capable of performing well on trackdays.
The body is the standard Westfield body kit, with Le Mans driver's head fairing, in Westfield racing green, with crimson carpets, dash, seats and driver's head rest. The bodywork has been professionally machine polished. The dashboard is populated by a matched set of MG Midget instruments, all professionally reconditioned, comprising fuel gauge, combined oil pressure/water temperature gauge, rev. counter, and speedometer fitted (and calibrated) with an MGB dial so that it reads to 120mph, rather than the 100mph of a standard Midget speedo. The car has a factory optional tonneau cover fitted.
Suspension incorporates the optional factory anti-rollbar kit, along with softer springs and Protech alloy bodied dampers which have been extended by approx. 20mm. to give better suspension compliance compared to the standard factory setup.
Braking is by discs all round, using the optional Hi-Spec brake upgrade, with 4-pot calipers at the front.
The engine started life as a 1275cc. Midget A series engine, but was totally rebuilt and upgraded by Peter May of Peter May Engineering so that it has an estimated power output at the flywheel of 110 bhp. from 1330cc., and revs happily to 7,000rpm, although the engine internals are safe to at least 7,500rpm, however the camshaft spec. is such that there is no advantage in performance by exceeding 7.000. Full details of the engine build spec with supporting documentation will be supplied to any serious enquirers, suffice to say that with all ancillaries (new alternator, starter motor, Ford 7.5” rally clutch, Aldon electronic distributor mapped to match the camshaft fitted, new 45 DCOE Weber carburetor and manifold, special shallow sump) the engine build cost was £6,435. The exhaust manifold is the factory supplied fabricated 3 branch manifold, but ceramic coated inside and out. Stainless silencer is a one-off, supplied and fitted by Custom Chrome.
The gearbox is a Ford type 9 'box, giving 5 forward gears, all synchromesh, fully rebuilt by Steve Perks of SPC, with uprated bottom gear to make it more usable. So this is an SPC Tracsport 'box.
The back axle is an Midget axle, fitted with new Peter May competition half shafts. The differential was rebuilt by Peter May and the crown wheel and pinion is the higher of the available Midget ratios, giving a usable top speed on trackdays in the region of 120mph, given a long straight.
These cars are notoriously difficult to value as there are so few changing hands at any one time, so I'm open to offers, but my starting point is £22,000 which represents only about 80% of the cost of building the car to this spec., and standard, and with no allowance for my labour.
The purchaser will receive a complete file of invoices for components used in the build, the original factory build manual in clean condition supplemented by a printed and bound copy of my WSCC boardroom build thread, running to about 150 pages, along with a Haynes Sprite/Midget workshop manual and a Moss Europe Sprite/Midget catalogue. So the buyer will not have the problem often encountered with second hand kit cars of being uncertain of what make/model of components have been fitted in the original build. This car could not be more completely documented.
