The Lotus Seven is one of the most well-known British sports cars and, dating from 1957, was built around a tubular space frame, aluminium body and using proprietary components.
The Series 3 came out in 1968 with a Ford axle, front disc brakes and revised instruments including for the first time, a fuel gauge.
This Twin Cam SS was fitted with the 120 bhp Lotus-Holbay twin cam engine, a limited slip differential, oil cooler, brake servo and Lotus alloy wheels.
This particular car is the first Twin Cam SS Seven and was shown on the Lotus stand at the 1969 Earls Court Motor Show. Only thirteen of these models were ever produced.
