This is a Lotus Eleven Le Mans which has been restored to the highest level of originality and reliability. The suspension is deDion with Girling breaks all around.

Crankshaft original designs having been cracked tested and inspected. The carburetors are original SU which also have been freshly rebuilt. The car runs and drives like a dream.
