The Lotus Seven was definitely one of the most puristic and uncompromising sports car concepts ever. Without a roof and with free-standing wheels at the front, it weighed just 750 kilograms. The English built the Seven from 1957 to 1972. Due to the lack of production, the athlete "almost" died out afterwards. But only almost! The team of Caterham secured namely the official production rights and thus the permission to build the Seven further. But other manufacturers build or have built in the past replicas that follow the concept of the Seven. For example the VM GmbH from the Menschik family with the fantastic VM 77!

It was built by VM until the year 2010. And just such a copy was now with a sentence Barracuda Racing Wheels stocked. The VM 77 comes with lattice frame and lots of fiberglass parts and therefore only on a weight of 550 kilograms. That's just 200kg less than the original ones Lotus Seven. And that is of course noticeable. The VM 77 accelerates to 5,3 km / h in just 100 seconds and this is underpinned by the two-liter four-cylinder with a soundscape that only a 40-series Weber twin carburetor produces.
