Gearbox is uprated AR35

It was made from the remains of a Lotus Carlton transplanted into a Senator Shell

I'm not so sure - the corvette box is an agricultural POS at the best of times and at least that one will pull top  ;D

It was at Billing last year, but I've not seen any pics on ABS to be honest.

Needed a proper good looking at, IMHO, but overall, it does look good.

No need to sneak Daz, here's one of my pics from Billing 2009....



HTH! :P
Nissan took a 600bhp NISMO Racecar and de-tuned this flagship Coupé for everyday use on public roads. GM took a reliable Carlton GSi 3000 24v and had Lotus convert it into a 377bhp Bahnstorming Lotus Carlton. Both vehicles were on sale from 1989....Which manufacturer would you trust with your cash??

You have to see it in the flesh. It's really nice. I have a LC and I've got to say this does look better even the colour is better.

The people who attended Billing 2009 saw that Lotus Senator parked next to variety of Vauxhall/Opel's during that weekend....

Yes Jimmy! That is my DTM Rep GSi 24v parked up on the Sunday with the rest of the Group 9 catagory "Odds & Sodds" section on the Autobahnstormers Club field at Billing 2009.

Hope so! :) Not got anything that clashes with the Billing 2010 dates yet....

i should be there too, wud like to see your motor 4 real[/i] ;)

I'll look forward to meeting you too Jimmy! ;)
