Seems stupid that i run a Motorsport car but don’t know how many have been made, but i can’t get an answer through Google
Any Lotus Nuts know the answer?
Hope those who went to Snett enjoyed the show! Hopefully catch up with peeps on Saturday at Silverstone.
…And many of the USA cars did NOT have center-mounted seat, but “conventional” left hand drive with passenger seat - we Americans are so sociable on the track!
Wow, that isn’t much is it? To think they made more Elan 26Rs than that, and to look at their current values… maybe we should un-modify ours lol.
Ours was a RHD car, being a customer car rather than a series car. Although it is now centre seat.
Thanks for the quick response!
There were only a very few built with GT regulations in mind that were right hand drive and never central seat either.
If yours was RHD it was a rare one! In fact, yours was the Ex Bell and Colvill car wasn’t it?
Indeed, Chassis No.5.
So how do you mean built to GT regulations, did they differ other than seat position?
I promise to be a faithful steward of my “American” S1…
…to keep a K motor in it…
…all S1 body parts front clip, rear clip, wings, etc. on the outside of it…
…and most of all, not to ball it up in turn 3 at Autobahn’s South track!

Nothing too spectacular, just bag tanks, refuelling equipment etc
Links to the ones for sale?
Supposedly for the Lotus festival they’re going to try and get a lot of Motorsport cars to do some sort of procession / fake race.
