Classic Car Overview
(Note: This is a Xanthos 23. It is not a Lotus 23. I entered it in the Lotus category because there was no Xanthos category available on Autotrader. The Xanthos chassis is an exact replica of Lotus 23 chassis, including the original bronze welding construction technique.)
RARE FIND! 1999 Xanthos 23 Sports Racer is a faithful Lotus 23 replica rolling chassis with modern Honda B18C1 engine. Comes with engine computer and wiring harnesses, KCR VW 5 speed transmission with torque sensing differential, adapter plate, flywheel, clutch, wobbly-web wheels, tires, custom engine mounts, custom exhaust, etc. Should be almost all parts needed to complete. You can also use a Lotus Twincam, Kent 1600, etc. Since they were a maker of replacement chassis, suspensions, clamshells, etc., Xanthos has major parts interchangeability with original Lotus 23s. The chassis is a very faithful copy of a late Lotus 23B, including construction materials and bronze welding methods, component types, etc. Asking $35k which is my original cost. Full receipts including for salvage engine. Perfer to sell everything together. Car has been garaged in California since acquired.

This Xanthos 23 may be the last uncompleted kit available in North America. Like the original Lotus 23, they are outstanding to drive. Many car enthusiasts consider the Lotus 23 to be one of the best driving cars ever made due to Lotus' very light triangulated tube space frame chassis and Formula Two-derived suspension. The 23 is essentially Lotus' 1962-1963 Formula-derived mid-engined sports racing car. Don't miss your opportunity to acquire this unique vehicle!
