H&H Classics at Duxford Imperial War Museum will see a lovely example of a racing Lotus Type 14 Elite sold on July 26 for an estimated $1250,000 to $150,000.
The Lotus is currently owned by a renowned Lotus enthusiast and collector and has undergone recent comprehensive restoration by Mk14 Components.
Its new looks sporting a blue body and black interior, and a five-speed Ford Type 9 gearbox.
The original engine and ZF gearbox disappeared over the years hence the replacement. It was also converted to take unleaded fuel.
Other modifications include rose joints on the rear suspension, a 50amp Dynator in place of the original dynamo and trimming of the seats and door cards in black leather for that extra tough look!
The Lotus Type 14 Elite not only looks immaculate, but it’s ticked off all the boxes with an impressive record.
The car has an invitation to the 60th anniversary celebrations at Castle Combe in May, it will afterwards be featured in Classic and Sportscar magazine.
It should appeal to Lotus car collectors across the world.
Nick Lumby of H&H Classics says, “We are delighted to have the opportunity to offer this classic Lotus which not only benefits from period racing history but has also been subject to meticulous restoration resulting in an extremely useable road car. In my opinion the Type 14 Elite is one of the most beautiful and accessible of Colin Chapman’s early creations.”
