Car Catcher: Why Get a Replica Super Seven When You Could Have the Real Thing?

Sponsored content presented by British Sports Cars.


The Lotus Seven quickly made a name for itself in the sports car world thanks to its low weight and nimble handling. In fact, the car proved so popular that the formula has been copied a number of times by numerous companies. As great as those replicas are, of course, it's hard to argue that they beat the experience of driving an original Seven.

If you're after that feeling, then this 1962 Lotus Super Seven may be perfect for you.

Said to have a “known history from the 1970s,” this Seven is reported to come powered by a professionally built 1380cc BMC race engine.

The interior was recently reupholstered in red with white piping, but the car retains a number of original features, like the factory roll bar and Wobble magnesium wheels.

The listing also states that this Lotus comes equipped with Spax shocks, a Coastfab lightweight stainless-steel muffler, and “other miscellaneous parts.”
