Dutton Garage is very proud to present this extremely rare opportunity to own this appreciating collectable Lotus MK6.
With documented racing history, and battle scars to prove, this all aluminium bodied race car is an investment opportunity not to miss!
Being only 1 of 3 documented cars to be built by Lotus for competition use, this is not your average collectable.
Over the standard Lotus MK6 kit sets available at the time Lotus fitted the 3 factory built competition cars with De Dion rear ends, Elekton drums, FWA 1100 Coventry Climax engines, MGA gear boxes, and the optional alloy Cooper F3 wheels (with integral front brakes).
In the early 60's there is record of this car having the FWA 1100 Coventry Climax replaced with a more conventional MG Magnette 1500. The car was then used for completion in this configuration for many years before it became retired to Japan.
During its retirement the car briefly made an appearance in the film Fast lady .
With only a handful of these cars ever being factory built, and only 3 documented in the De Dion configuration, its makes for a great historical competition investment piece, or another car to your established collection.
