Restored in 2015 by Rawles Motorsport Ltd with less than 2000 dry summer miles covered since. Finished in Healey Blue on Ivory two-tone with Navy Blue interior, this rare numbers matching MKI BN7 is one of only 68 right hand drive two-seater cars to be produced in 1959.

The MKI two-seat cars were notably produced for race and rally homologation with this model winning the Liege-Rome-Liege Rally of 1959, the 1961 Coupes Des Alpes Rally (as driven by Stirling Moss) and entering Le Mans in 1960.

293 LKE has undergone a comprehensive body restoration with all outer panels removed and repaired in our workshop. Each panel was stripped back to bare metal and rebuilt or replaced. An extremely solid car prior to restoration, it was this high quality donor car which has now made for a very original restoration.

The engine was stripped down, chemically clean then fully rebuilt to our upgraded Rawles Motorsport ‘Fast Road’ specification with a 30% increase in power and torque made more accessible through a broader spectrum of the rev-range. This includes our specially developed fast flow manifold and sports exhaust, both of which greatly increase performance without compromising comfort. The engine is fully balanced, has an uprated camshaft, unleaded conversion and much more.

Our leather artisans hand-made the complete interior 293 LKE using high quality Navy Blue leather hide and Blue Wilton carpet to fully re-trim the car to the original design and pattern. In addition, thermal insulation has been added to the interior to reduce cockpit heat.

Excellent photographic documentation is available to view with the car and it is supplied with a heritage certificate, large paperwork file and photographic documentation of restoration plus MOT. De-bumpered but bumpers can be re-instated at no additional cost.
