The original Lotus Seven was the product of pure engineering genius. Thirty-five years on, it continues to encapsulate the Lotus founder's ideals for an affordable sports racer: it makes few compromises, yet is equally at home on the road as on the track and it can be built by a mechanical novice.
This fascinating book chronicles the saga of the Lotus Seven including the Series 2 and 3 during the 1960s - when it won fame in The Prisoner TV series. Caterham continues to build the Super Seven and John Tipler shows how the various structural components of the car are manufactured, and interviews key figures in the Seven's evolution. He also looks at the eventful history of the Seven in club racing, and takes the reader through the current UK racing scene. It is essential reading for Seven fans and sports car enthusiasts everywhere.
