Anybody lucky enough to have witnessed the immortal Jim Clark effortlessly three-wheeling a Lotus Cortina through Bottom Bend at Brands Hatch has probably hankered after one ever since. The trouble is they're now fetching big money, which makes this evocation doubly attractive. Based on a comprehensively restored 1966 Cortina GT that had spells in Belgium and Holland before being repatriated in 2012, it is finished in classic Lotus Cortina livery, is powered by a refurbished 1588c Lotus Twin Cam engine, has been lowered courtesy of Lotus specification springs, and features period correct 5½ inch steel wheels and boot hump to accommodate the lowered axle. More recent attention has included: refurbished braking system; lightened flywheel; and new stainless steel exhaust system, starter motor, fuel pump, radiator, heater matrix, tyres, carpets, and inertia reel seat belts. According to the vendor, the rust-free bodywork, paintwork, mechanics and electrics of 'SVN 270D' are 'very good' and the car performs impeccably.
