Description

Lotus Evora Stratton GT No. 2 - LHD VAT Qualifying - Export potential
Based on the Evora floorpan but with extended track width of 110mm the car was designed to have a lower centre of gravity, to be lighter and faster. Powered by the 3. 5 litre supercharged V6 engine shared by the other Evora and Exige variants but having been re-worked and tuned by Swindon Race Engines. This process involves major engine strengthening, forged pistons, con rods, higher lift camshafts and a specially re-worked exhaust system making this a very lively engine producing an astonishing 438hp, making it the most powerful Lotus under production, with a standing start to 60mph in an astonishing 4 seconds, with an immediate throttle response.
Although having had the capacity to build more, just 20 GTE?s and 1 Race Car were built at Hethel, the majority with the IPS semi-auto box and LHD formation although a small number of RHD models and a small number in Manual Transmission were built.
All were sold before they were built and once Lotus reached the required figures for the GT3 racing regs production of this amazing car then ceased.
Well nearly!
More parts were produced than were necessary to complete the requisite 20 cars. Due to its special relationship with Lotus Cars, Stratton Motor Company entered into the deal to take on the remaining stock of parts, chassis tubs and bodies to be able to produce five more cars, all hand built as left hand drive manuals by Stratton Motor Company to a unique spec and then badged as the ?Lotus Stratton GT? under the direction of it?s owner and racing enthusiast Roger Bennington.
These five cars completed the meticulous build and are ready for their new homes.
Each is powered by the 436 bhp 3. 5 litre V6 ?Eaton? supercharged charge cooled engine but are now supplied with the manual version of the gearbox that was found in the original IPS semi-auto GTE?s.
Finished in Satin grey and fitted with 19 inch rear alloys, 18 inch front alloys with Pirelli P Zero ZR tyres, carbon fibre front splitter, air-dam trims, inspection hatch, door mirrors, A-pillar, roof, louvred tailgate cover, air intake ports, engine cover and rear valance. Complete carbon fibre interior to include sill covers, floor panels, extending to rear space behind seats and door cards. Fitted with Recaro seats trimmed in black leather with contrasting stitching. Creature comforts include air-con, power windows and electric mirrors, Alpine sound system with Bluetooth and a reverse camera.
Truly individual cars, hand built by Stratton Motor Companies team, these cars will never be repeated and surely already have a place in British motoring history.
This car is VAT Qualifying, making it an ideal car for export VAT free @ £69, 999
