General description : VÉRITABLE CORTINA LOTUS MK2 1968 UNE VOITURE DE COURSE POUR LA ROUTE ! Ou peut-être était-ce le contraire ? À la demande de Ford UK, cette brave berline fut profondément transformée par Colin Chapman pour en faire une véritable bête de course, qui s'illustrera tant en circuit qu'en rallye. La voiture que nous vous proposons est une des 4.032 Cortina Lotus MK2 produites. Avec son magnifique moteur Twin Cam 1557 cm³ de 109 ch, ses gros Weber et son poids contenu, cette voiture offre encore actuellement des performances plus qu'honorables. De très belle présentation, elle a bénéficié d'une restauration soigneuse il y a un vingtaine d'années, dans le plus pur respect de sa configuration d'origine, comme l'atteste la plaque constructeur. Couleur Hermine White avec bandes vertes et sigles Lotus, intérieur noir très racing, tout correspond parfaitement. Une voiture plaisir pour amateur averti qui, au vu de sa rareté, ne pourra que prendre de la valeur. Bref, un investissement excitant mais sûr ! REAL 1968 LOTUS CORTINA MK2 ! A RACE CAR FOR THE ROAD ! Or was it the other way round ? At the request of Ford UK, this this seemingly-inoffensive sedan was radically modified by Colin Chapman to make it a true racing machine which covered itself with glory on both tracks and rally stages. The car that we propose today for sale is one of the 4.032 Lotus Cortina MK2 produced. With its nice 1557 cc - 109 bhp Twin Cam engine, its big Weber carburetors and its limited weight, this car still delivers very good performances nowadays. It is in very good condition and runs perfectly. It has been carefully restored about twenty years ago, with the greatest respect for its original features. Hermine White external colour with green stripe and Lotus badge, very racing black interior : everything is perfectly matching. A rare genuine pleasure car for connoisseur. A sound but exciting investment !

About Ford
Ford, founded in 1902, has arguably changed the history of automotive world more than any other car manufacturer by introducing the first people's car Model T in 1908. They had produced more than 15 million cars by the end of the production in 1927, by which T had become obsolete.

Ford launched the first low priced V8 engine powered car in 1932. 1932 V8 was an instant hit with superior handling and performance to many far more expansive cars of the day. No wonder 32 V8 Ford has become such a favourite among hot rodders around the world with 32 Deuce coupe as their icon.

During the war Ford completely shut down civilian vehicle production to dedicate all its resources to the Allied war efforts (1942-45) They used to build B-24 bombers, aircraft engines, jeeps, M-4 tanks, military trucks and Bren-gun carriers and more than 30,000 super-charged Rolls Royce Merlin V-12 engines for Mosquito and Lancaster bombers as well as P-51 Mustang fighters. After the war Ford cars in the USA got bigger and flashier along with their competitors. In the 60's Ford was back in the forefront again when introducing their commercial hit Mustang in 1964. Mustang was so popular the competition had to follow Ford's example and the ponycar phenomenon took over the US. Over the years the ponies grew some muscles until the oil crisis kill finally killed them off.

In the sixties Ford rushed into international motor sports scene with a fury. After unsuccessful Ferrari takeover, when Enzo Ferrari had cut the deal off with Henry Ford II making the latter absolutely boil with fury, Ford turned to Lola in UK to produce a Ferrari beating long distance racer after. The collaboration between Ford and Lola created the mighty Ford GT40 that absolutely beat Ferrari in Le Mans 24 numerous times.

In Europe, Ford introduced some of the most epic race and rally cars of the 60's based on humble family sedans; Cortina GT, Lotus Cortina, Escort Twin Cam, and Escort 1600RS with the iconic Cosworth BDA engines.

Today classic Fords are extremely popular with enthusiasts and a great selection of classic Fords can be found for sale at www.ClassicDigest.com
