Lotus 102 Lamborghini
This is a rare opportunity to purchase an up and running totally original 1990 Lotus 102 Formula One car. The stunning Camel liveried type 102 is the only Lotus F1 ever to have been fitted with a V12 motor. Its sonorous 3.5 litre Lamborghini engine produces 700 bhp at 13,000 rpm (750 bhp at 14,000 race trim)and sounds truly superb, as attendees at previous Goodwood Festivals of Speed and Cholmondeley's Pageant of Power will testify.
Team Lotus manufactured five 102 chassis for the 1990 season, and they were raced by Derek Warwick, Martin Donnelly and Johnny Herbert. Chassis number 4 was by far the most successful and Warwick achieved the Lotus team's season-best finish of fifth in the car, at the Hungarian Grand Prix.
Following a 20 year period in storage with Lotus it was restored to original race ready condition by Classic Team Lotus, and subsequently demonstrated at a wide variety of high profile events by its first private owner, Andrew Morris and also Martin Donnelly.
The car has just been stripped and rebuilt and the suspension has been crack-tested. The engine is currently being fully rebuilt with new pistons, rods, cams etc so that the car can be sold as completely ready to go. The engine management system has just been replaced to make the car more driveable and easier to map. The gearbox has also just been rebuilt.
This chassis is the only 102 in running condition, and remarkably still has all of its original bodywork and decals and also Warwick's original alcantara seat. It is one of only two 102s that featured updated aero with improved diffuser and wings.
This amazing F1 regularly gets invites to the best events worldwide and is sold complete with an excellent spares package and everything required to run the car. Full technical support available.
