Minty Fresh World Class Motorsports Ultralite Lotus Super Seven S2K with only 5913 miles, finished in December 2014 by Backdraft Racing [url]http://backdraftracing.com[/url].

Pics hosted on facebook.

Powered by a low mileage Honda S2000 F20 drivetrain, AEM Standalone ECU, 208 rwhp on the chassis dyno, six speed gearbox, Subaru WRX LSD with a 4.44 gear, and independent rear suspension (ALL other Seven's have a solid rear axle!).

Weighs approximately 1,200 lbs. with the custom OZ 17" wheels.

600lbs/in and 500lbs/in coilovers with revalved QA1 shocks.

Street legal and registered as a 1967 Lotus. It's a real car with running lights, fusebox, turn indicators, low/high beams, cooling fan, gps speedo, Backdraft wiring harness, and relays (no rats nest of wiring).

Anodized aluminum panels look gorgeous in person and in the photos. Very nicely upholstered, with many thoughtful extra touches. Over $45k invested. $30k and it's yours. I would consider some trades, but I'm picky... Located NW of Chicago.

I took it out for one Instructor session at Gingerman for a total of <10 laps last summer. With some safety updates it could be an interesting track car.

Located in East Dundee, IL. Please send a note to loudes13 at yahoo.

Beautiful car. I always liked the looks of the WCM cars. I bet it a lot of fun to drive. Good luck with the sale.

I had a ride in one at MSR years ago. Right where my Seven would run out of steam, the WCM would hop on to the big lobes and it would go a little more nuts. I wish I'd been driving instead of riding.

FYI - Caterham CSR, Westfields and a whole bunch of homebuilt Sevens run IRS. Other Caterhams have a Dedion rear, not a solid axle.

Saw this on Facebook.  Looks like more fun than any adult should be allowed to have.  Free bump and good luck with the sale.

I would trade you exactly 7 vehicles for that... I don't think you want them though cheeky

Wouldn't seven cars for a Lotus 7 be an even swap?
