Parked next to the TR7 at home I was surprised how large it looks.
|Shame about the one on the right:-)|

It is really easy to scare yourself in this beast, the acceleration is unbelievable, the rev range very long, still pulling at 7k rpm, even when cruising along in 5th or 6th just booting it will easily allow you to overtake quickly, drop it down a gear and it fly's. The brakes and road holding are fantastic, as you expect from a Lotus. Quality is vastly improved over the previous Exige and Elise's, however as it is still by all means a track car their is little in the way of luxuries.

We headed off on a fast run to Southwold in the evening sun in the 2 Lotus's, firstly stopping in the town for fish and chips before finding somewhere to take the dog.
|Quick walk with Toby the dog.|
We then headed for Blythburgh for drinks at the White Hart, before heading home on a circular route to get the miles required.
