Bonhams co-chairman, Malcolm Barber, comments: "We're delighted to have been selected to auction this incredible motor car, with proceeds to go to Peace One Day and their honorable cause.

"The E20 model was driven by World Champion racing driver Kimi Raikkonen and Romain Grosjean and Jerome D'Ambrosio during the 2012 FIA F1 racing season including a race win at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix event.

"The particular chassis offered is the launch car which was unveiled to the media on February 5th 2012. It is the sister car to racing greats.

"Retained within the Lotus F1 factory for Research & Development purposes, it is an excellent example of race car design. With such great provenance, and the cars' beautiful art design, we expect some spirited bidding at the sale."

A 1997 Ferrari F310 driven by Michael Schumacher is to cross the block at Auctionata in Munich on September 26.
