I love this picture. Zippy little rides, so they say. Looks like it'd be a blast to drive :)

Never seen one of those before i dont think. Cute little car, are they quick?
Reply
:iconqmorley:
very, very quick. lotus quick: light weight instead of high power. They are truly a car meant for a race track.

Ah, cool. Strange that Ive never seen one. Old classics are better than new ones, new cars have got no soul, no personality. Good to see these old ones still running!

The bulge would suggest a four-stroke, yes?

Yes, although the 2-stroke sonetts (250 made) have a bulge, this larger bulge indicates it has the v4 4 stroke engine. The 2-strokes would be a 3 cylinder. We found one for sale once that was a 2 stroke and the guy cut the hood all up and threw a v4 in it! travesty.
