A pretty cool article on a Seven camera car for hire. Some of the story is slightly confusing, as the text alternates between calling it a 'Lotus' and a 'Caterham', when, in fact, it's a Westfield 7. It shouldn't keep you from enjoying the story & video, but Caterham sued Westfield in the late 1980's for too-slavishly copying the styling of the Caterham, which is the legally-licensed continuation of the Lotus Seven. It was settled out of court in England, but Westfield had to alter several styling aspects of their cars.
Bike-engined Sevens, from Caterham, Westfield and others, were very popular for a time. They are super-lightweight, and can be powerful (but not very torque-y). A high-revving Seven with a Hayabusa engine and a sequential transmission could probably keep up with practically anything.
