Radford Debuted John Player Special Lotus Type 62-2
The stunning Lotus Type 62-2 coachbuilt by Radford has made its global public debut at Goodwood Revival at the weekend. The car shown at the Revival event was the iconic and distinctive John Player Special (JPS) specification, launched by Radford earlier this month.
The Lotus Type 62-2 coachbuilt by Radford (The Type 62-2), is limited to 62 examples worldwide, with each model built to the owner's desired specification. Of those 62 cars, only 12 will be JPS liveried cars, 12 was selected, as it is synonymous with legendary racing driver Ayrton Senna whose JPS liveried cars always wore the number 12 on their coachwork. Radford is currently taking build slot applications for this ultra-exclusive model.
Demand for the Type 62-2 has been very strong since launch, with more deposits taken at the show, but Radford still encourages serious buyers to register their interest with a deposit on the Radford site – later in the year the coachbuilder will begin the process of carefully allocating owners to each of the limited run of 62 cars, with the first delivery to an owner set to take place in 2022.
Ant Anstead “We couldn’t have anticipated quite how strong the demand for the Type 62-2 was going to be. Prospective owners of these cars will be getting a truly special car – no two will be the same, which is really the true meaning of coachbuilding – it’s why we’re here. We’re still taking deposits and will be starting the process of carefully selecting Type 62-2 owners, later in the year.”
The JPS car is the most extreme version of the world’s first modern Radford – and the third and final version of the car to be announced. It sits alongside the 'Classic' version, which provides subtle design cues to the original Type 62 Lotus car which does not have rear ducktails, and a 'Gold Leaf' version, which pays homage to the race car's iconic Gold Leaf livery. The JPS Type 62-2 was joined on the Radford stage by three other special Radford coachbuilt cars including a 1965 Mini de Ville “S”, formerly owned by Sir Paul McCartney, a 1966 Mini Cooper S, formerly owned by Ringo Starr and a 1966 Aston Martin DB5 Vantage Shooting Brake,
The car displayed at Revival showcases more visual drama with a more pronounced splitter, larger air intakes and more aggressive front and rear diffusers than any of the other Type 62-2 variants. Powering this particular JPS Type 62-2 is a 3.5-litre supercharged V6 engine option, producing 600bhp, which features upgraded pistons, con-rods, camshafts, calibration and a larger supercharger.
Radford is inspired by the legendary British coachbuilding company of the same name, which once built cars for a celebrity clientele that included all four of The Beatles. The global company with British heart and soul is co-owned by leading designer Mark Stubbs, broadcaster and motoring specialist Ant Anstead, former FIA Formula One World Champion, Jenson Button and acclaimed business adviser and lawyer Roger Behle.
Production of the Radford Type 62-2 begins in late 2021, with first deliveries being made in 2022.

I don’t log into tumblr and Instagram for a few days and I come back to all this FS drama....boring off season who?? So upset for Meagan...and W/M who most likely just lost the Olympic spot that they won for Canada which is some sort of BS. So disappointing, definitely not going to be rooting for Eric and Vanessa....

What NOT to do
Hi everyone! I will be sharing a few tips today on what not to do when handmaking a candle. Like I said previously in last weeks blog, it is very important to follow precise and safe directions as not doing so can really put you in a bind.
Follow me >>>>
First things first DO NOT hurt yourself obviously.
How do we do that? Well we are going to need safety gloves, glasses, and let’s not wear open toed shoes just in case we drop a candle we do not want it to break on us or burn us if the wax is not fully set yet.
Also, It is so important to NOT buy the wrong items and if you read last weeks blog, you know what to get and what NOT to get. Please if you have not yet gotten to last weeks informational post, do so now so you can get caught up and see what materials are best for that.
It is very useful if you are making several either for yourself, gifts, or just as a hobby to order in bulk because purchasing from places like Hobby Lobby will just have you spending so much unnecessary money. Even if you are not buying 5 plus pounds at a time, places like Amazon, bulk apothecaries and specialties shops will not only save you a few bucks but usually helps small businesses which is always a plus!
With that being said, I hope that you have reviewed last weeks but if not another thing to do would e to get to correct vessel which is the container for your candle. I know we all love to thrift, the less $$ the better right? However, we have to be careful because not all glass is safe to use when applying the correct measurements and temperatures needed to make a great candle.
If you are selling these candles, DO NOT hand anyone a candle without #1 trimming the wick to appropriate length and #2 not applying a warning label for insurance purposes and safety of that individual.
We want to make sure we are thinking about other safety along with our profit it may be exciting to give or sell your first candle up but it is very selfish to not consider every aspect to ensure the same fairness to each person and candle. DO NOT BE SELFISH..
Please do not use crayons, or art products when coloring the candles. Also do not use aromatherapy oils, perfumes, body oils, food, lotions, or etc to make a fragrance for your candle.
Please do not try to speed up the cooling/setting process by freezing, or refrigerating the candle wax or vessel. Also, do NOT forget to weigh your items. Every step counts. Please reach out if you have any further questions. Thanks for reading guys! Stick around for next weeks blog to find out what materials to steer away from.
