  • Vehicle Overview

    This car is a scratch built replica of a Lotus Seven that I built in 2002. The car was built using plans in a book called "Build Your Own Sports Car for as Little as 250 (Brittish Pounds)". This book shows how to build the car using a donor vehicle for most of the drivetrain & suspension. The car is street legal and weighs about 1,400 lbs.
