Continuing our coverage of Bonhams‘ Quail Lodge auction in Carmel, California on August 18–19, we bring you the first in a pair of rare Lotus racers.

The sale marks your chance to snag some Steve McQueen style or just amp up your collection of classic British competition cars.

The ex-Nick Moore Racing 1966 Lotus 47 GT Group 4 Competition Coupé

First up: the ex-Nick Moore Racing 1966 Lotus 47 GT Group 4 Competition Coupé (above).

Based on the original Europa, the sleek ride enjoyed a string of racing successes.

Fully restored and in race-ready condition, including the John Player Gold Leaf livery, it’s estimated at up to $160,000.

Not bad for one of the famed marque’s most successful sports/GT machines ever.
