I glanced through the presentation by curiosity : It looks quite nice, which is not reflected by the estimate (awaiting for the final cut)... Spyder chassis effect ?

From what I have heard of Brian, he builds cars for use as Mr Chapman (and his hero Jim Clark) intended, rather than them being the concours, show car type (which I hasten to add I am not denigrating : we all need “reference” cars)
As such I think it’s’ guide price reflects the tidy but eminently usable condition

Brian advertised the car on this forum back in February and also in the Club Lotus magazine. I was due to view it as soon as allowed under lockdown, but someone bought it unseen in early May. Surprised to see it appear so quickly on auction site.......makes you wonder, doesn't it?

Nothing to 'wonder' about BrianA. Brian B sold it to a dealer who places a number of cars with us - Berlinetta Classic Car Auctions.

Cheers
