Hi all, my grandad owned a Lotus Eleven as a road car back in the day, he sold it and really want to know where it is now, all we have is the reg number which is RNP 735

It was a dark blue colour and we have had word that it was on the starting ramp to the Mille Miglia at some point.

Here is a photo, does anyone knows where this car could be? maybe it is racing?

Thanks!

Dial up Historic Lotus Register on the internet and contact Victor Thomas there, the Lotus 11 Registrar. He knows more about the model and the individual cars than anyone else can possibly invent, though several people have tried... I am sure Victor can tell you which car this was, and whether or not it has survived in some form.
