Lotus Type 49 Formula 1 'Jim Clark' Child's Car

Sold for € 20,700 (US$ 22,892) inc. premium
Lotus Type 49 Formula 1 'Jim Clark' Child's Car
Offered here is a child's car inspired by Jim Clark's Formula 1 Lotus 49 of 1967, a landmark design by Colin Chapman that gave the Cosworth DFV engine its first F1 victory when Clark won that year's Dutch Grand Prix at Zandvoort. The car is powered by a 120cc 8hp four-stroke engine, complete with electric starter, which drives via a three-speeds-plus-reverse semi-automatic transmission. Hydraulic brakes are by Brembo, while other noteworthy features include a stiff steel chassis; 10" alloy wheels shod with period-correct high-profile tyres; full leather interior, including the quick-release steering wheel; a stainless steel exhaust system; and a stainless steel roll-over bar. The top speed is 75km/h (47mph). A very well built and beautiful example.
