Classic Team Lotus Greetings

We send you our best wishes for Christmas and 2021. We thought you would be interested to see what we have been up to, so we gathered together a selection of what has been keeping us busy. It was not what we had planned, but we have managed to be as productive as ever.

The cars are as follows:

12/301; the 1956 Motor Show car, now finished, at long last
33/R11; Jimmy’s 1965 Championship car, restoration ongoing
Elite LX; 1960 Le Mans, unique 2 litre, restoration ongoing
72/9; Ronnie’s 72, readying to run with all the 72s, sometime….
38/8S; Graham’s 38 from 1967, restoration ongoing
72/7; Emerson’s most winning 72, restored to how she should be
6teen/364; not in restoration, but we needed a ‘6’, somehow (!)
81/5; construction completed, 40 years on
81/4; Mario’s 1980 Monaco shunt, repair underway
S3 Esprit; driven by ACBC, acquired by Lotus Cars, refreshed by CTL
78/2; another addition to the Works Collection, restoration ongoing
56B/1; on the brink of running again, 50 years on, in 2021

As you may have noticed, with one or two somewhat tenuous stretches, our assembly of Work-In-Progress enabled us to contrive the Classic Team Lotus Twelve Cars of Christmas!

Having got into the Christmas spirit with the Twelve Cars, we went the whole hog by donning the Santa hats, for what could be called a Ho-Ho-Hocially Distanced team photo.

Team spirit has kept things going at Classic Team Lotus throughout 2020. We hope the spirit of Christmas will endure for you and we send our best wishes for 2021.
