 From eBay listing:

This Lotus was built by Dave Rollo, famed Canadian Lotus
racer and builder for many decades.  It was built new from the ground up
just several years ago using a 1966 Lotus Elan S2 shell and all new
mechanical bits.  Dave only raced the car once before selling the car to
a gentleman in Colorado who never had a chance to put it on the track. 
It looks like I won’t be racing the car either although I will consider
a partial trade with any vintage sports car or other interesting
vehicle.  Here are the details of this car….

-Dave Rollo went
thru the Tony Thompson catalog and ordered many high dollar racing parts
for this car.  It has a brand new backbone chassis built to 26r spec. 
All of the following suspension is also Tony Thompson….  It has
adjustable upper arms, adjustable spring perches, and Koni shocks.  It
has hardened billet output shafts, competition springs, rear sway bar,
alloy hubs, billet axles, and has the CV driveshaft conversion. 

the drivetrain Dave built the motor to 170 horsepower.  Weber 45 DCOE
carbs.  It has a cool period Vegantune cam cover.  Rear mounted oil tank
from Tony Thompson.    The transmission is a rebuilt Quaiffe close
ratio dog box.  The rear end is a Quaiffe limited slip differential. 
Wheels are genuine Minilite wheels.  The Avon tires are still good for
track testing.  The belts are good thru 2016.  The body was painted when
the car was built just a few year ago and it still looks good with just
a few very minor scratches here and there.  The radiator is also 26r
spec from Tony Thompson.

– This car is basically all new.  Assume
that you would need to do minor sorting before putting on the track. 
I’m happy to sell it to anyone around the world and can help arrange
shipping if needed.  This car has the vin in the actual body and also
the stamped vin plate. It also has both logbooks from RMVR and the
Canadian Sport Club (VARAC)  Like most race cars, this car is sold on a
bill of sale and a title should not be needed for export although one
could be acquired with a bit of time and money.  Please message me for
any questions.
