A rare opportunity to acquire this no expense spared, specially built S2, with interesting back story. Originally acquired in 2013 by our client and BRDC member as an unfinished S2 project, intended to be a third-string race car at HSCC race weekends enabling an extra entry to the historic roads sports grid.
The original 1964 S2 Chassis complete with parts, was entrusted to Matt King of Motor Racing Medics Ltd, the leading Formula Junior preparation company owned by Dr. Matt King. They were charged with a no-compromise rebuild, with no cost limits, and an emphasis on safety and performance the only stipulations. Following a detailed inspection early in the build, the original S2 chassis was deemed unrestorable on safety grounds. The decision was taken rebuild the car around a new chassis supplied by Arch Motors (of Huntingdon) to S2 spec. Arch supplied all the original Lotus 7’s chassis in period.
After a lengthy period of time the owner became involved in numerous other race series and championships. Although the original need for the car dissipated, the rebuild and preparation by Motor Race Medics continued with no limits on cost and with no deviation to outright performance and build quality.
The 105E engine was entrusted to George Wadsworth, leading formula junior and twin cam engine builder. As you can see from the photos the car has been finished to a very high standard indeed, complete with new aluminium panels.
Having only covered 30 road miles since completion, this car would make a fine addition to any Lotus collection as a very competitive entry into Historic road sports or historic Lotus hill climbs and sprint championships, or is simply ready to enjoy on the open road today.
