We are delighted to offer our Vauxhall Lotus Carlton to the market finished in Imperial Green with Anthracite leather.
The Lotus Carlton is a legend and the kind of car that comes along once in a generation. At a time when fast four-door saloons were the preserve of BMW and Mercedes, the Carlton arrived and completely demolished the opposition. Power was generated from a 3. 6 turbocharged straight six producing 377bhp coupled to the 6 speed gearbox from a Corvette ZR-1. Special Goodyear tyres were developed and the car used Group C derived AP racing brakes. However what really cemented the Carlton’s legendary status was when the outraged Daily Mail newspaper declared its unbelievable top speed of 176mph ‘too fast for British Roads’.
Car no 28 of just 284 UK RHD examples ‘H772 DUF’ was supplied in March 1991 by Moorland Motors of Blackpool, finished in the obligatory Imperial Green with Anthracite Leather. After light use the car was put into storage and today has covered just 4565 miles. In 2017 this immaculate example was subjected to a full recommissioning as well as being serviced by the renowned Bell and Colvill Lotus. Complete with its original book pack and correct numbered Lotus Carlton book that was presented to each owner at the time of sale, this surely has to be one of the lowest mileage and original examples in existence. An amazing addition to any collection!
We now have a dedicated vehicle viewing area with plenty of space to carefully examine the car which will have been thoroughly cleaned and sanitised prior to your arrival. All accessories such as bookpacks and service documents will be presented next to the car, with PPE equipment provided. Contactless delivery and handover can also be discussed using our enclosed trailer.
