1963 Lotus 23B built to exacting standards from a number of new spares commissioned in 2000.
The bronze welded chassis, nickel plated suspension, uprights and body are all exact replicas and therefore interchangeable with the originals.
Massive spec includes:
Avo coil overs, adjustable for compression and rebound,
Engine: Twin Cam 1137cc Honda - 170 BHP @10,000 RPM
Pace dry sump system.
Davis Craig digitally controlled water pump system,
Laminova Oil/Water cooler,
Quaife LSD, Correct 4 stud / 6 stud hubs (will take wobblies).
Bespoke Lotus/Honda rev-counter with recall.
Fully corner weighted/set up.
Weight: 982 lbs (fully wet).
All fasteners are aircraft grade aluminium or s/s. Exhaust is zircon coated.
No expense spared, every item brand new (except mint 7000 mile engine) and every receipt retained (all 120 of them). Fully documented build photo history and even a bespoke wiring diagram. The car has some additions that would help it to be registered for the road, including hazards, horn, fog light, cat and silencer etc.
Reason for sale: I enjoyed the build but now don't have time to use it on track. Other projects in hand. It is not road registered.
Must be seen to be appreciated and for sale at a fraction of its build cost. Possibly PX.
The price will include the Brian James trailer.
The car is located near Bristol, England
