The Appeal


Thanks to the wonders of modern simulator technology, it is now possible to sit in a genuine Lotus 22 cockpit and drive round your racetrack of choice, all from the comfort of your living room.

Here we have a Lotus 22 Race Simulator built using genuine, period Lotus 22 parts which include the bodyshell, seat and windscreen. It features some of the latest gaming technology all of which we’re informed is compatible and optimised for all major simulator software and supports VR headset technology.

The tech includes a 49”, 100R curvature Samsung Odyssey G9 Monitor and Fanatec equipment including a CSL Elite base, Load Cell brake and Clubsport shifter. The simulator is powered by a gaming PC with 16GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Graphics Card and Intel Core i5 processor.

The really clever bit is the fact that all this simulator equipment works in harmony with genuine and period-correct parts. A custom-built replica chassis, steering and gearbox linkages replicate the look, feel and function of the 1960s open-wheel race cars.

If you’re a fan of ‘60s F1 and are searching for an immersive simulator experience, this Lotus 22 setup would be perfect for you.

The Specification


  • Using period components and the latest tech, this is a very realistic ‘60s racing experience
  • Genuine Lotus 22 Bodyshell finished in the iconic period colour scheme
  • Period-correct Lotus 22 seat covered in faux red leather
  • An historic racing Lotus 22 windscreen, finished with silver ‘bullet’ mirrors, wraps around the cockpit 
  • Replica aluminium dashboard, complete with a rev counter and oil pressure and temperature gauges
  • Custom chassis, steering and gearbox linkage designed to emulate the original
  • Fanatec force-feedback CSL Elite base, Load Cell brake pedal and Clubsport shifter
  • 49" Samsung Odyssey G9 monitor provides a wide field of view
  • Twin Logitech Z200 speakers mounted directly behind the driver provide the audio feedback and simulate the sound of a mid-mounted engine
  • Gaming PC with 16 GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Graphics Card and Intel Core i5 processor
  • Runs all major sim titles including Iracing, Assetto Corsa, ACC, R-Factor 2 and more as well as boasting VR compatibility
  • Retains paddle shifters on the wheel so is compatible with other styles of racing
  • The vendor informs us that the Lotus bodywork remains unmodified

The Condition


Recently repainted in the iconic Lotus 22 colours, the bodywork has recently been refinished to a high standard. 

The aforementioned period parts such as the wrap-around windscreen, ‘bullet’ wing mirrors and genuine seat all look to be in very good condition. Before the driver, the replica dashboard is new and therefore in excellent shape. The instruments really complete the look as well. There are no wheels or any other part of the car behind the driver so the whole simulator is actually quite compact

Summary


Seldom will you find a setup that incorporates genuine period parts, making this amongst the most immersive and authentic ‘60s racing experiences available. If you’ve always fancied a racing sim of your own, this simulator would make a brilliant e-sports rig or tool to hone your racing skills with.

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.

Anti-sniping

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.
