It's the same car that has been tested by Richard Hammond in this video:

Yep, that's my car.

It was also the Lotus press car and featured on the front page of Evo magazine, AutoCar Magazine and Sportcar Magazine, as well as a few Men + Motors episodes

I’d say that was a low estimate?

No, Dave will have to confirm however but just under the reserve of £40k I believe.

(I'm sure I replied to this thread, perhaps it went missing during the server transfer)

But yes, including fees the max bid was £38k. (£39k if bid online). The car wasn't really in the right sale, which was more old-school British cars, and there was little time to preview the car before bidding, and no chance to have a test drive etc.
