Talbot Lotus Sunbeam Rally Car


Talbot Lotus Sunbeam Rally Car


The original car shell was registered in 1982 and was extensively modified in 2010 into a replica of a works rally Lotus Sunbeam. The build was a no expense spared transformation with the shell being fully seam welded with extensive strengthening and re-engineering carried out with the car subsequently being campaigned very successfully in British and European Historic rallies. 


The dry sump Lotus twin cam engine was built by Phil Davison who built the works engines which produces 230bhp.  The car was built with only the best parts and comes with its Motorsport Uk Historic Rally Vehicle Identity Form, Competition Log Book and V5. Over the last 5 years the car has only done the odd sprint and rally show and has just undergone a full refresh with a full rebuild of the engine by JRE race engines using one of the last original steel head gaskets provided by Phil Davidson.
