When in 70`s Britain joined European Economic Community, it had to drop the tax evasion for unassembled cars, delivered in boxes which was significant market for Lotus 7. When that happened, Lotus sold its production licenses to one of their dealers – Caterham Cars. They kept its production even today, more than 60 years later.
