Road Legal Classic Racer.
We have this Lotus on offer via our brokerage service. We have taken a good look at it and it appears to be very nicely put together. We are Porsche people therefore are not experts with these cars. If you are interested we will be happy to place on a ramp and let you see it in details. On offer at significantly less than it may cost to build to this spec.
This is what we are told by the owner.
