A super re-creation of the era-defining little road racer, recently refreshed by Alan Mann Racing.
Professionally built by renowned race engineer Andrew Denton in North Shore City, New Zealand, to exacting standards some 42 years ago, this particular VI has since been imported into the UK from South Africa where, most notably, it was campaigned in 2018 and 2019 in multiple HSSA events including the South African Grand Prix in the safe hands of Diane Dugmore, a dedicated and well known South African female driver.
With the passage of time, a refresh was decided upon and, with that in mind, the car was recently placed in the hands of Alan Mann Racing to be thoroughly checked and mechanically overhauled as required. Now in outstanding condition with exquisite fresh paint work, a rewire and a retrim by DK including the steering wheel, this Lotus Recreation, with 750cc Coventry Climax motivation and a live rear axle, is now fully detailed and ready to be enjoyed once again. Please note a freshly powder coated FIA Spec roll hoop will be provided. With all UK taxes fully paid, please note that the vehicle is not presently UK road registered but is, however, accompanied by NOVA Certification.
