Continuing on from the superb work of Henry Tombs in recreating the Lotus Type 23 sports racer and making the Xanthos 23 a true reproduction, Kelvin Jones Motorsport built this Lotus Type 23 with a chassis provided by Arch Motors & Manufacturing, UK. The wheels are magnesium wobblies and the rear uprights are magnesium as well. This is as close to the genuine article as you can get.
The engine is a new block and new big valve head as per FIA 23B, new steel crank, new steel rods, new pistons, single competition clutch, dry sump and all is balanced. New 45 152 DCOE Webers, 186 bhp at 7500 rev to 9000 with current carb setup. A dyno report is included using 98 octane fuel.
There is a 2016 custom trailer with fire extinguisher, shop lights, a 115v 60 amp circuit breaker box and a 2000 lb winch. The trailer is available with or without the car. 1598cc Lotus Twin Cam.
