1965 Lotus Super Seven r 500

Hello all,Thank you for looking at my 1965 Lotus Super Seven Replica built in 2012 by Bob Fine of Orlando, lorida. This is just like an original Lotus Super Seven, Caterham Seven, Super7, r Bricklin. This is the only car I know that seems more like an F-1 Car than a grocery-getter. Reving the race car sounding engine always brings a smile to my face, nd will to yours. I've given many a child and then father a ride (because dad truly wanted the ride.) If you enjoy attention and questions such as "what exactly is that?", nd "wasn't that the evil guy in Fast and the Furious's getaway car?",and comments of "I know she is fast!, and she is... I've owned several high performance cars, nd hands down, his is the most fun on 4 wheels I have ever had. Just remember, Porsche911 is exciting to drive, hile this isexhilarating. This is also much more fun than a side by side, nd is street legal!This is a 1965-1968 Super Seven Replica, his weighs 1100 lbs wet and has 168 hp at the rear tire as it was dynoed and the engine mapped. This was made to the light specifics of theCaterham R 500, et made to be morereliableand safer. Such additions were designed to add morecomfort for the driver, he seat is able to be adjusted. I'm 5'8" and 200 lbs. This was made toaccommodatetaller people than myselfand I had to add adjustable seat rails in order for me to reach the pedals. So yes, he driver seat is fully adjustable, y 5'4" father can drive it or 6'2' employee. Also, he original Caterham and Lotus plans do not incorporate a fire wall. This has a firewall, s every car with a motor should, nd it is more than substantial even at it's light weight. This car was not made with the unreliable land rover engine, ike the Caterham R500 but, nstead it uses a 2006 GSX-R Suzuki1000cc engine that wasmappedandbalanced to perform and have the most available torque withreliability. The engine has 7,100 miles on it while the car andchassis has 2600+- Miles. The engine comes stock with 178 hp, utthat never makes it to the rear tires, fter having everything reworked we have 168hp at the rear wheel which is just amazing. Never just believe the engine horse power, ts at the wheel where it counts. This was Bob Fine's 5th Lotus Super Seven he created from Caterham and Locost kits. He has over 2000 hours of blood sweat and tears into this project and knew his son would drive it, o all the additional safety. You can buy a new kit from caterham for23204.80 US Dollars minus shipping, hen take the 300-2000 hours it takes to build it yourself and still not have this exciting of a machine. Bid on this today for instant gratification!
This 1965 Lotus Super Seven replica also has a balanced drive shaft rather than a chain drive from the suzuki engine to the rear differential. This has adifferential out of anrx7 twin turbo,making this a very strong rear end. One can doburnouts all day long if they really wanted to. It has LED head lights and running lights. The interior cockpit has a built in GPS and huge lighted centered tachometer with gear indicators.This is a six speed sequential shift manual that is perfect for quick precise shifts up and own. This is a BECenginedLotus with a drive shaft. It also has a dampener on the brakes if you want to set this up fortrack use. The front suspension is fully adjustable also for track use. It has a large 15 gallon rear racing gas tank withembeddedfoam so the fuel does not slosh. I personally wanted to use this in autocross events. Yet, s a funeral director (why there's an old hearse in the background of the pictures) with 2 young children, don't have the time on the weekends when events take place. I generally use this as car for fun and cruising through the back roads near the hocking hills of southern Ohio.
