Westfield makes extreme interpretations of Collin Chapman’s Lotus Super 7. Many people in the Super 7 community have written that the Westfield is too dubious to be part of their club. But it doesn’t need to be, after all, one of their popular versions has V8 stuffed in that tine engine bay!
The version seen here is powered by Suzuki’s infamous Hayabusa motorcycle engine.
This engine produces a great amount of horsepower while still retaining a light weight. Because of these characteristics, the Hayabusa fits well within the Lotus Seven ethos.
Like the original 7, the Westfield is a British Sportscar usually built by the purchaser. Many detail choices are left to the builder, which explains why no two Westfields look alike. If the customer is lazy, Westfield can build a turnkey car.
