Near complete RM Lotus Super Seven S2.
I simply have way to many projects on the go and something needs to give. This is the easiest one for me to let go at the moment.
If not sold. it will eventually be turned into a track car.
This kit was originally manufactured in Port Elizabeth. South Africa by a company called 'R. M. Classics'. The company manufactured replicas of all sorts of classic sports cars. but got into trouble violating Caterham's patent on the design and had trouble exporting the cars anywhere and have been closed for a number of years. There were two different models made and the one listed here is the S2 model which is very close to the original in all dimensions which was / is by far the best 7 made.

Hi. I'm interested in the lotus 7. I don't have pay pal, but if I choose to make a purchase, you will get your $$. the pics didn't down load well. do you have pics you can email me? would you consider taking out the motor and tranny? I have that. would you consider freight shipping or do you prefer meeting on the usa side and make a transaction? thank you for your time. I always wanted a 7.
