Colin Chapman’s Lotus Car company designed & manufactured the Lotus 7 – both in kit & factory built units – from 1957 to 1972 – at which time the sole manufacturing rights were purchased by Caterham Cars, who have carried on producing myriad variants of this amazing little car to this day.

Banned from racing in the 1960’s – in both the USA & Europe – deemed as being ‘Too fast to Race’ – the ban was lifted in 2002 and once again this agile little rocket competed in many major competitions against the likes of Porsche & BMW with outstanding success.

Royston’s acquired this amazing example from a long time Lotus aficionado– who treated himself upon retirement some 6 years ago – but, age – in the form of dodgy knees – negate further enjoyment!

However, his considerable expenditure has produced a formidable car running a Ford Crossflow uprated AX block 1700 cc – with a 270 Piper fast road cam and twin DCO Weber carburettors, complete with K&N filters.

In addition, it sports a type 9 five speed gearbox with a limited slip differential – a full stainless steel exhaust system with a heat wrapped manifold. It has an FIA roll bar, Aldon electronic ignition & runs on a new set of Minilite alloy wheels.

Only two prior owners have enjoyed this Caterham experience, which has proved minimal – clocking up only 11, 900 documented miles from new. FSH & a current MOT to August 22.

You really shouldn’t miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity!!
