    Eds Lotus 116 GT3

    So after much head scratching, this came up...

    Lotus 116
    aka Vauxhaull VX220

    2002 build year going by the VIN, first registered 2004. Original LHD, NA 2.2L ecotec Z22SE 5sp, only 35000km prior to be being driven sideways into some Armco, and then stripped for bits by flatbrimmer and co.

    Went through TV inspection in August, so is technically certified and registered Till 8/2017. A bit arbitrary, but allows a bit of freedom getting it rebuilt and running withou jumping through massive hoops in the meantime. Then makes a good basis for further shenanigans once project rebuild is finished

    No fixed ideas with how this'll unfold. Ideally I'd like 300-320hp and a 6sp box. Need to decide which direction to go with bodywork, suspension and interior likewise.

    Step one will be sorting a donor vehicle from which to steal the required metric shitload of basic bits from, including some basic stock engine configuration, just so we can get it running and driving in 'basic form', and then I can drag the bigger things stepwise through certification (way easier than expecting TV certification of everything at once).

    Um the VIN appears to be the only "part" you have. :)

        And a loom, plus the rego papers.

        Half cut and a tank of gas

        Nah, they're pretty simple things, not a lot to them. Original LHD with German rego are worth a bomb, this cost me sfa, basically just a days worth of fucking around to go pick it up. Its sure a bit of a pita way to start a project, but to be fair, I would've stripped a whole car down to basically this anyway.

              340R style body?

              Or maybe a Maclaren M8F body?

              GT40 Spyder?

"The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."
