Lotus Anglia

Ford never sold a Lotus Anglia, but if they had it would have looked very much like this. All of the key elements from the Lotus Cortina are in place: the rev-happy twin-cam with twin Webers, the Ermine White paint with Sherwood Green side-stripe, the Lotus steels with mirror-shiny hubcaps, the discrete Lotus badging. Bringing this home-built example up-to-date (and making it a little more fun on the track) are such entertaining additions as lower, stiffer suspension, Cobra buckets, a full rollcage and polycarbonate windows. Chapman would have approved.

I would love to get my hands on the Lotus Anglia. The handling must be really awesome because of the stiffer suspension.
