1/24 Sports Car Series no.357
Lotus Super 7 Series II
Item No: 24357


Length: 139mm. Image shows painted and assembled kit.

One for the Ages
Legendary British manufacturer Lotus manufactured the legendary Seven between 1957 and 1973, helping cement this lightweight kit car in the public's imagination across four model Series. The Series II car - the most prolifically produced - was announced in 1960; it had a redesigned frame, modified rear suspension, and smaller 13-inch wheels. Nose cowl and fenders were switched from aluminum to FRP, while in Super 7 cars, a higher-performance engine was employed. Although Lotus ended production in 1973, Caterham took over its manufacture and the car still thrills enthusiasts today, under the name of Caterham Seven.
