Enquiry About The Lotus Seven

    The brainchild of famous racecar designer Colin Chapman, the featherweight Lotus Seven embodies his engineering philosophy of “Simplify, then add lightness.”  Simple, fast, minimalistic – the Seven provided a uniquely undiluted driving experience that has spawned countless imitations over the years. 

    This 1972 Lotus Seven was raced and rallied in Singapore in the 1970s and features a 1300cc Hobay tuned engine, complete with a half-race Ford camshaft, a pair of twin-choke Weber 40 DCOE carburettors and a close-ratio racing gearbox.

    The Seven, as it is affectionately known, makes an exhilarating fair-weather cruising companion and is an essential addition to any classic sports car collection!
