Roger....as requested

LOTUS 11 SERIES 2 -


Chassis No. 535.
Reg No: 4372MP.
Not to be confused with other recreations on the market, this car was
found stored in 1977 having sat there since 1960. Detailed mechanical
restoration by Neil Twyman, most cosmetics kept original. This car is
quick, VERY quick, a giant-killer.
All required papers. Masses of history. Successfully run in many
Historic categories. A SERIOUS car.

?67,950


Cheers
G

There is a guy in Johannesburg making very pretty replicas of the 11, with fibreglass body. The rolling chassis is priced at about the GBP 2000. Not bad if you really want a road going / racing look-a-like and have a shallowpocket.

Sorry group......
I attatched the pics of the XI on rogers bit....if anyone else wants to
see it then I can post it to the forum or you can go looking yourself on
their web site.........
http://www.paulmattysportscars.co.uk/
There's a nice looking +2 next to it too.......PM has that for sale at
?16,950.....no not ?16.95p....nearly ?17k....gotta be the most expensive
+2 since the day they were new (relatively speaking....ish)
That should put a smile on a few +2 owners faces......looks like +2's
might be on the up again...I know there are fewer and fewer of them now
and their numbers are being wittled down at an alarming rate at the
moment judging by the number of bits that keep appearing on ebay......
Ah well
Cheers
G

What is the import cost to the UK though....think that this could be
prohibitive.....
Westfield have started production of their 11....?9k get you everything
except the bits from your donor 1275 mg midget......and it looks quite
pretty.....

I have a Uncle, who was a panel beater, and went for an interview at Lotus
to make parts for the 11. Didn't get the job and stuck to making parts for
AC and London Busses.

My (very tenuous) claim to fame!

No sorry.....just the one.....however Paul Matty himself is a bit of a
lotus nut to say the least, and if you get talking to him and you can
get a word in once hes started I'm sure that hed take a couple more for
you..!!!
Mind you, from your side of the pond, email communication would be more
advisable .

Obviously, I'm not a serious looker/ buyer. I am just curious as to it's configuration and condition. Perhaps I'll email PM.

I suppose I was somwhat instrumental in the sale/purchase of #150, about a week ago, and one of the cars the purchaser was looking at was another car in the US w/ same number. He sent me some photos of it to evaluate and it looked like a real car to me, but sometimes hard to say w/ just a few photos. Often, it's the lack of photos of certain areas of a car that make me suspect someones hiding something. At these kind of prices, buyers need to beware, since part of what they are paying for is a continuous legitimate history.
