First Look: 24357 Lotus Super 7 Series II Model Kit with Photo-Etched Parts

Coming soon to your favorite model outlet is this gorgeous Lotus Super 7 kit in 1/24 scale, part number 24357. The Super 7 is a legendary kit car that has spawned legions of fans since its release in 1957, and lives on today, manufactured by Caterham. Lotus developed and sold Seven cars first, however, and the enhanced Super 7 version of the car was powered by a 4-cylinder 1.3-liter Ford Cosworth engine, achieving a top speed of over 160km/h. Simple yet effective designs such as rack and pinon steering and drum brakes made its assembly accessible to the home constructor.
