Sous son habit de Lotus Europa, cette 47 GT cache la mécanique beaucoup plus sophistiquée

d'une machine de compétition-client, comme la marque en avait le secret. Au lieu de l'ensemble

moteur-transmission issu de la Renault 16, la 47 GT était équipée d'un quatre-cylindres

Lotus Ford Cosworth double arbre 1 600 cm3 développant quelque 165 ch. La boîte Renault avait laissé place à une Hewland FT200 avec différentiel autobloquant et la suspension avait bénéficié elle aussi d'améliorations, le châssis-poutre étant lui-même plus léger que la version standard. Ainsi modifiée, la 47 GT s'est montrée très compétitive durant la saison 1967, remportant de nombreuses victoires.

La voiture que nous présentons, aux couleurs "Gold Leaf Team Lotus", a été livrée neuve, d'après le Lotus Register, à Nick Moor Racing, qui en a confié le volant en compétition à John Blades. Après être passée entre les mains de Tony Mantle (Climax Engine Services), John Harper, Jonathan Bradburn et Michael Budd, elle était cédée en 1995 à un autre passionné de Lotus. En 2002, elle bénéficiait d'une restauration complète avec remise en état du moteur et de la boîte Hewland. En 2011, elle était vendue à deux gentlemen driver français. Ils ont alors confié leur nouvelle monture à l'atelier réputé Équipe Europe pour qu'elle soit révisée et préparée (les travaux ont totalisé 22 000 €) : leur idée était de participer au Mans Classic en 2012, ce qu'ils ont fait avec succès. L'année suivante, ils ont pris part à la saison de Classic Endurance Racing organisée par Peter Auto.
S'étant lancé dans un autre projet, les propriétaires ont décidé de se séparer de cette rare Lotus 47 GT, ce qui donne l'occasion à un autre amateur de profiter des performances de ce modèle original et peu connu.


This Lotus is one of the very early cars, with a chassis number of 47GT10.
According to the Lotus Register, it was originally sold by Lotus to Nick Moor Racing, probably in early 1967, and was raced by John Blades. The current owner, an enthusiastic Lotus collector, purchased the car in Great Britain in 1995. It was previously owned by Tony Mantle of Climax Engine Services, John Harper and Jonathan Bradburn.

In 2002, 47GT10 underwent a full restoration. The engine was rebuilt and includes a new billet crank, Carillo connecting rods, and a competition valve train. The original Hewland FT200 gearbox was totally rebuilt. The fiberglass body and enamel finish are in excellent condition, painted in the famous red and white "Gold Leaf Team Lotus" colors. The black interior is restored with original material, and the cockpit is strengthened by a roll bar and support plate under floor. Fire extinguishing system plumbing, and a racing fuel cell all add up to a nicely prepared example. Few 47GTs have been resurrected with such passion. It then pass to two french enthousiast that send the car to Equipe Europe workshop in France, witch support the car for Le Mans classic 2012 and the next CER season.

Had Colin Chapman not been so focused marketing a low priced sportscar, he could have avoided the trauma that was the Series 1 Europa by simply concentrating on its remarkable shadow, the 47GT. Eventually, he did so anyway, and in 1971, the production Europa finally gained the famous Lotus Cosworth Twin Cam, albeit with the Renault gearbox still in place. There is no doubt that the 47GT was by far the greatest of the Europas, and one of Chapman's most successful sports/GT machines. On that basis alone, this restored, race-ready Lotus 47GT would be a welcome addition to any garage or collection.
