The Lotus Cortina, one of the most interesting British saloon cars to be produced in the 1960's, first appeared in 1963. This very special model resulted from an interesting partnership between Ford (UK) and Lotus Cars of Chestnut, Hertfordshire, England. A stiffened two-door Cortina shell was used as the base with a Lotus 1558cc twin-cam engine with two Weber carburettors providing 105bhp. Servo-assisted 9.5 inch (241mm) front disc brakes, aluminum body panels and a suspension system that had been both lowered and re-designed all ensured that the Lotus Cortina handles well whilst acheiving a top speed of 108mph and 0-60 in 10 seconds. Wider tyres and road wheels of 5.5x13 provided extra grip.

The most distinctive feature of the car was the ermine white body colour with Lotus-Sherwood green striping. The car's appearance was enhanced by small "Bumperettes" at the front and the addition of Lotus badges on both the rear quarter panels and the blacked-out front grille. The Cortina was named after the Italian winter resort "Cortina di Ampezzo" where the 1956 Winter Olympics were held. From 1963 to 1966 a total of 3,301 units of this particular model were produced.
