Description

By: Chris Rees .

Colin Chapman said he created his Lotus 7 in just one week. He could not have imagined that it would continue in production for approaching 50 years, and show no sign of losing its appeal. So what is it that makes the world's longest surviving sports car so compelling? It is perhaps the purest sports car on the planet: stripped of all excess weight, stripped of any pretence and blessed with one of the sharpest chassis ever created.

From humble origins, the 7 developed into one of the world's fastest cars and a perfect choice for circuit racing. Caterham Cars assumed production in 1973 and it has since pursued a vigorous process of development.

This book catalogues every single variant of the 7 ever produced by the Lotus and Caterham factories, detailing the story behind it,
its strengths and weaknesses, technical specifications and buying advice. For the potential 7 owner, it is a perfect starting point for researching which model to buy and what to look out for. For the enthusiast, it provides concise yet comprehensive information about one of the greatest legends in the history of motoring.

Chris Rees has been writing about cars for 20 years, focusing on limited production sports and specialist cars. He first drove a 7 in 1984, while writing for Specialist Sports Car magazine, and became hooked. Since then he has written for numerous newspapers and motoring magazines, including Classic & Sports Car, Autocar and Alternative Cars. He is also the author of more than 15 motoring books.
