If you can’t quite justify the legal repercussion of selling your kid on Ebay for the tens of thousands you would need to purchase a real Lotus Cortina, then for just 16,000 of your stirling pounds this not quite a replica Lotus Cortina could be just the thing for the summer. And the autumn. And the winter. And then spring and then summer again.
It’s been painted in a gunmetal with silver to contrast and is ready to fun with a Type 9 five speed box, a 2.1 Pinto engine with some Cosworth goodies, and to top it off it has a period correct roll bar, seats, harnesses and steering wheel.
I’m sure a lot of people have a problem with the colours, but it’s not trying to be a replica. However, something little more period correct without actually being the legendary factory Ermine White with Green Flash would also look pretty damn nice.
If you want to buy it then it’s up for bid here on Ebay.
