If you're a true driving enthusiast you might not be able to finish reading this before giving us a call. You're looking at a 1972 Lotus Super Seven S4 that is tantalizingly all original with super low miles.
This is not a replica or a rebuilt. This roadster is part of the direct linage to one of the oldest and coolest elemental sports cars ever made. The fourth and final series (S4) is arguably the most desirable of them all. It's hard to talk about this legendary Lotus as a practical car. After all the entire experience is about getting back to the fundamentals of a light and quick sports car. Still, the S4 was the longest of the true Sevens, and the larger fenders are a real benefit on wet days. This particular one looks like it hasn't been messed with since the day the components left the factory on the English coast. The lightweight fiberglass body is intact, and the resin is showing its version of patina. This gets us a bit excited because the S4 was one of the most popular original Sevens, but full production is often quoted as less than 1,000 cars (some estimates far less.)
The interior might not look like much, but Lotus people know this is where the S4 is truly the best of the breed. It was the most comfortable thanks to the extra foot of length, and the S4 was the only one of the line to offer full bucket seats. But don't ever accuse this roadster of being a coddler. The entire experience of this Lotus is about taking driving back to its bare elements, and so your left hand rests comfortably on the three-spoke sports steering wheel, and the right one never leaves the wood ball on the short throw gearbox. Your eyes are affixed on a superior view of the road or the full set of Smiths gauges at all times. Every last bit of this car from the seatbelts to the rear storage cover is part of the original equipment package. So while any original Seven is an attraction at a car show, this survivor is a cut above.
The reason why you want this Lotus is because you know the amazing feeling it has on the road. Under the hood (ok, bonnet) this thoroughly British machine has the 1600 cc Ford Kent engine. These were a staple of European motoring, and so parts are plentiful. Better yet, when setup with twin Weber carburetors and K&N air filters, it's quite a performer. Remember, Lotus was about adding lightness not overpowering their vehicles. This sprightly motor works in conjunction with the featherweight body and perfect sports car height to give you one of the rawest and most exciting driving experiences around. Driving a Super Seven is about finding the sweet spot while rowing through all four forward gears, leaving the convertible top off and driving through the rain, and being the person who can dart into corners faster than anyone else. Plus, this one takes a quick cleanup, and it becomes the 17,300 original mile survivor that steals the attention at every car show.
Rare, raw, and amazing hurry up and get this Lotus Super Seven before another true enthusiasts gets here. The black soft top and doors are also included with his time-capsule Lotus!
