Honda S2000 Power: 2018 Lotus Super 7 Replica
Today’s next custom is an interesting take on the classic Colin Chapman Lotus Seven form-follows-function paradigm. And while I understand the desire to use Honda’s legendary F20C (or F22C1, the seller doesn’t say) for power, but I am slightly disturbed by the hood bulge needed to hide Honda’s tall DOHC setup. It ruins some of the only clean lines on the Lotus shape, but I guess it is more function than form…so I guess it gets a pass.

Want something fun to drive? Want something that’s cheap to maintain? How about all the power without the weight?
The one thing that most sportscars aren’t is affordable! Powered by Honda S2000 engine mated to a 6-speed manual transmission, this Super 7 is a blast to drive. It has plenty of power and a killer sound from the exhaust.
The interior is done in black and yellow leather bucket seats, and a black shifter knob. The 4-wheel disc brakes bring this beauty to a stop in a hurry! The front end has the ability to be customized, with the new fenders that are included with the sale. They are new and never were installed onto the car. The yellow and black paint scheme echoes a sports car vibe. If you like being the center of attention, this car is for you.
The over all vehicle weight is light, which really helps this baby move, and move fast. It hugs the corners and holds to the turns like is was built exactly for this purpose. This is a no non sense modern built ride that will put a smile on your face when you drive it and with all the attention it brings you.

Ah, yes, the palm trees and desert region of the Alleghenies.
Wondering if the thing is even registered to be on the street.
Looks very much like a Chevy truck from the back.
Kind of sparse on information about which is essentially an assemblage of mystery parts if the seller really wants to sell it
Had to double check with the original and yup – not a chevy truck in the original – https://images.squarespace-cdn.com/content/v1/5acced225b409b3ac7b67b84/1600268529514-T1E1291W7GPR8XMMCQSB/DSC_3125.jpg?format=1000w
This has some… let’s say, “unfortunate” styling. I’m sure it’s fun, but I don’t need to give people more reasons to point and laugh at me.
I’m not a fan of putting primary gauges in the center of the dash like that. Auxiliary stuff, sure. But why make it less convenient to see speed and revs in your peripheral vision? Besides, it’s none of the passenger’s business how fast we’re going. 😉
One hundred sixty-eight THOUSAND MILES in an open car, stated to be just 5 years old?
if true, the driver has quite the hair shirt and I suspect, Sack the size those stupid truck nuts. (and probably similar sized hemmorhoids) Perhaps the engine has seen that much road time, but the body? Kinda doubting even that. Ariel Atom and actual Lotus 7 cars have fenders over each wheel in their road licensed cars. now trying to imagine raking up 168K miles in 5 years on track courses.
Urelated: how unhappy would a DOHC S2000 engine be if given the Slant Six treatment to at least shift the hood hump out of drivers field of view?
I like it and that’s all I’m gonna say about that.
Who can name that taillight source?
Ugly as hell but I bet it moves like stink!
