Pesky, it's a great 7 at a great price.
Sure it will get snapped-up quickly!

Is it an Elise next?
Feel free to pop-over to have look at my S1 if needed.
(Not that I'm looking to sell it - love it too much for that!)

Yep, looking to replace it with an Elise

Test drove an Elise S2 135 Sport at the weekend, very nice to drive.... although I made need to practice the entry & exit procedure!!

Prefer the look of the series 1 Elises

Stop right here!
No excuse selling your Caterham as there is plenty room to park an Elise in front of behind it.

Personally, I'd go for an Exige S1 if I really had too.

Audi has some nice 4 cilinder engines with a nice turbo that fit an S1. Upside of all that is you can leave with wheelspin, even in third gear. Great fun to take your mother in law out for a spin...

You missed out yesterday at Shoreham where a bloke who turned up in I think it was an Elise said it would blow away any 7 and he refused to drive it unless he was wearing a suit. Some of the other members of the L7C had some fun with him but I couldn't bring my self to do it. I must be getting old
Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

Some of the modified Elises are very rapid, and they handle amazingly - my bog-standard S1 is very impressive in the handling department...

However, my 7 is in a different league - but it isn't bog-standard!
