Brief Comments Unique 1969 V8 Lotus Europa GKN47D replica of one off Lotus supercar built in conjunction with GKN

Comments
This unique car is a replica of the original Supercar built by Lotus in collaboration with parts supplier GKN, called GKN47D (Google Lotus GKN47D). This original car of which only one was built, had a Rover 4.4L V8, and could do 163mph, 0-60mph 5secs, and 13.1 sec standing qtr. The replica car for sale was built in WA many years ago using an original 1969 Lotus Europa, fitted with a P76 4.4L V8 and Citroen 5 speed transaxle. When purchased the vehicle had been damaged and repaired following an accident but was unpainted. A full restoration/engineering project was undertaken by us on the vehicle with the chassis beng strengthened, a brand new Rover 4.6L (including high performance camshaft) engine being installed, new aluminium fuel tank, new wiring, new gear selection, new cooling system, new adjustable coil over suspension fitted, 4 wheel discs, new windscreen and further fibreglass body repairs undertaken. The engine has never been used. Many dollars and effort were put into this car over 2 years, however due to problems obtaining gear parts to repair the Citroen 5 speed transaxle, the project has remained unfinished, as other projects took precedence. Due to a relocation and change of circumstances, the car is now for sale. In its current state it now requires body prep and painting and installation of either a complete replacement Citroen transaxle or alternately the use of either a Renault, VW or Porsche transaxle. Due to the fact that the car is an unfinished project, it is being sold at an enormous discount on what has obviously been spent on the car. The engine alone is not far short of the asking price for the complete car.
