For the Locost & Haynes Roadster Enthusiast

Locost Rover V8 4x4

LOCOST

The Build

Originally, the design was to employ 4×4 Sierra Cosworth and Rover V8 components. Since then, the design has evolved, it now has components from a much wider spectrum – Nissan Skylines, Supercharged 4.0 Jaguar AJ-V8’s, Audi A8’s, RS6’s, Porsche Cayenne, Vauxhall Corsa, Citroen BX, Mercedes SLK etc.

Some parts are hi-tech and brand new, yet others are over 80 years old.

HAYNES ROADSTER

EVOLUTION

Lotus Seven was built in 1957, the brainchild of Colin Chapman. Convinced of the advantages of small lightweight racing cars, with huge power to weight benefits, he actually referred to the Seven as something he had dreamt of designing since he was a schoolboy − a ´four wheeled motorbike´.

CAD Design

Seventh Heaven is a modern 3D CAD designed tribute – who knows one day I might even drive it!

REVOLUTION

Chris Gibb and Ron Champion have certainly started a revolution with kit car enthusiasts.
