Good day fellow Lotus enthusiasts we really like Lotus cars but don't fit in any of them, so we built our own it's a Lotus 7 chassis that is blown up to 1/1/3 scale wit a full body comprised of a lotus elise front and exige rear with a 4.0 V8 in the front.

Your thoughts would be much appreciated.

That is so cool!

Reminds me of the 50's and 60's sports racers that I so love! Sort of an Old Orange (google Max Balchowsky to understand the reference.)

OK, I was wrong. Funny, I was thinking about the Lexus because a friend of mine is putting one in a Europa.

Seeing the side shot, I thought is was a photoshop joke, but then looking at it from the angled pictures, I have to say it has some pretty nice looking features. It looks very TVR inspired.

Still, with looks like this, it had better be fast.

Definitely TVRish and sort of 1960s Cheetah, probably the orange color. The curves along the side have conflicting directions which confuses the eye. It is easy to be a critic, but the car should be a blast to drive.

Why Can-Am? I was thinking early CanAm Lotus sports/race car when I saw the thread title.
