As a long-term devotee of MOTOR SPORT I much enjoyed JW’s test of the Caterham Super 7 HPC in your October issue. However, I noted that the impression was that some of the sporting ‘bite’ had been engineered out of the car. In the penultimate paragraph JW suggested a more aerodynamic outline. Surely this is provided in a Ginetta G4. I would be most interested in your views on the matter, as I can’t make up my mind which I prefer.
Their salesman told me 0-60 in 4.7 seconds and 130 plus mph for the 1600cc Ford and better still more for the 1700.
My car? A Bristol 411 Mk4: you’re welcome to try it if you like. Purchased after WB’s report of many years ago. I’m not disappointed but would not mind the contrast of a 7 or a G4!
My brother-in-law and I already have some variety, viz: Aston Martin V8 (Vantageised) and DB6, Maserati Merak, Jensen FF, XJ6 V12, Triumph Stag and sundry moderns. It’s all fun, isn’t it?
Keep up the good work!
