1971 Lambretta GP200 Electronic Brighouse


  • Beautifully restored matching numbers example
  • Long-time enthusiast ownership
  • Reliable and rare (and original) Ducati electronic ignition


Styled by Bertone , the GP range (DL outside the UK) was the last of the great Lambretta scooters.

Available with 125, 150 and 200cc engines, the new motors offered several improvements over their predecessors, including more robust crankshafts and better gearing. The new styling was also that bit more streamlined.

In the last of the line, the GP200 Electronic, the one Lambretta weak point – the ignition – was replaced by an electronic alternative supplied by Italian motorcycle manufacturers, Ducati.


  • Meticulous restoration
  • Matching numbers scooter
  • Tax and MOT exempt


  • Beautiful overall condition
  • Brushed metal parts in very good order
  • Handlebar lever assemblies very clean 
  • All rubber parts, handles, runners and faring edge remain supple and show a very healthy shade of black 
  • Frame is robust and in excellent condition
  • Very clean underneath
  • All badging straight and correct, and side panel decals very neat and intact
  • Headlamp bezel and chrome panel detail is bright and shows no pitting 
  • Michelin tyres are new
  • No signs of corrosion


  • 200cc air-cooled single
  • Original 6v electrical system
  • Original and rare Ducati 6v ignition retained
  • Reported to be in full working order by the vendor
  • Engine and gearbox appear to be in top condition, with no signs of leaks
  • Hoses and wiring appear healthy with no cracks or signs of perishing. 
  • Suspension and brake components all clean and in excellent condition
  • No corrosion or oxidation 


The GP200 Electronic is probably the ultimate expression of the Lambretta scooter offering even better performance and robustness than its predecessors, with the added chic of Bertone design. And that Ducati electronic ignition takes the uncertainly out of firing up the motor.

An added bonus is the machine’s quality restoration and that it comes from a knowledgeable Lambretta enthusiast.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
