Description

"When the Lotus Seven was launched in 1957, designed by the legendary Colin Chapman, it was far ahead of any other sports racing cars of the era. The car was so right first time, it is still in production today, as the Caterham. It is the second most copied car on the planet. Lotus produced the classic Seven through until 1970, the Series 3 benefitting from a strengthened chassis, wider wheels and tyres, slightly wider and strengthened Ford Escort Mexico back axle, exterior fuel filler and even a fuel gauge!
This well-presented Lotus Seven replica is based on a Birkin Racing Seven. It has recently been imported from South Africa where it was part of a private collection and raced regularly. Rebuilt to race specification, this Seven is fitted with a black top Toyota 4A-GE 20 valve engine, developing circa 175bhp. Other upgrades include fully rose jointed suspension, uprated wheels and tyres, a safety fuel tank (which sits in the passenger seat), fully independent rear suspension, limited slip differential, upgraded shock absorbers and fully independent rear suspension.
Presented in ‘Team Lotus’ livery, this example has previously been a front runner in the Lotus Challenge Series and we are sure it will be a very competitive car for the new custodian. Offered with all UK Taxes paid and a NOVA document, this extremely fast example is sure to be huge amounts of fun for the new owner.
