Only post-war enthusiasm can create an engineering piece like the Lotus 7. The years of fierce competition between the two battling alliances in WWII are an excellent ground for technological advancement. The car is certainly among the most significant examples of consumer products that exist because of this newly found craftmanship.

This Lotus 7 art poster presents a remarkable car

Lotus 7 is a British gentleman essential. It is both a club track racer and a road-going car. Combine it with a vintage helmet and a check suit and you get the ultimate British motoring experience. But it is not only the Britishness that makes the car spectacular. It is the fact that this car is still in production today with the same design and engineering model.

In the '70s Britain joins the European Economic Community. The country has to stop the tax evasion for unassembled cars that come in boxes. This is a significant market for Lotus 7 and they have to sell its production licenses to one of their dealers - Caterham Cars. They still produce the car today, more than 60 years later.
