Super Seven Alloy hardtop.
Lotus Seven S3 1972 with "B" modifications since 1987.( wide body)
Car has to be driven on the road from Holland to the south of France so the
driver need some form of protection. I started with a model from foam/GRP
with gullwings but I wasn't very happy with the shape of it. Also, in that
configuration you couldn't drive it with just the doors on and as we all
know you can't drive a Super Seven without doors unless you like SM.
I start again....
So I made targa top wich you can easily remove and the doors can stay in
position. To make getting in and out just a bit more comfortable I made a
stay on the targa panel so it moves up-wards at the rear.
There is a polycarbonate window fixed to the roll-over-bar.
Boot is secured with leather tonneau cover wich you also can use when the
targa top is at home.

Westfield Sport 2000 Completed Race Car Kit Test Drive on Coimbatore Race Track, India 2013 [HD]
[Watch in HD]
I should title this "Our's First" as the video taking and editing being
first ever for me [Vamsi Pottangi] and constructing a race car is first
ever for Shreyas Shibulal and Varun Sukesan.
This car isn't legal to drive on Indian roads so had to book the Kari Motor
Speedway Race track in Coimbatore, India. Believe me, exclusive 9hrs access
to the race track isn't good enough to get bored of this beautiful and
powerful machine. Best part is 0-100kmph in 4secs. Low seating and engine
sound gets us close to an F1 machine experience ;-) you could hear it in
the video, I didn't have to fade the background score.
Money can buy you any car but only passion can get you onto a car like this
especially building it on your own.
