The plan called for Lotus to assemble 1000 cars to homologate the model for FIA Group 2 racing. - Cosworth Engineering helped develop and fine-tune the engines, while a Ford 4-speed gearbox as specified for the Lotus Elan was adopted for the Cortina program. The suspension was revised, and the body shell was lightened with aluminum skins in the doors, hood and trunk lid. - Aluminum was also adopted for several other mechanical components. Jim Clark, Graham Hill, Jackie Stewart, Vic Elford, Jack Sears, Sir John Whitmore, and Jacky Ickx all raced Cortinas. By the end of production late in 1966 it is believed that just 2894 Lotus Cortinas had been built, virtually all finished in Ermine White with Sherwood Green body band and flash. - The Cortina MkI has deep competition roots as they were campaigned by the likes of Jim Clark, Graham Hill, Jackie Stewart, Vic Elford, Jack Sears, Sir John Whitmore & Jacky Ickx in period.
