Overview
This is actually a ‘Grasshopper’ electric car manufactured by BWE Sportscars until the early 2000s as a scaled down child’s version of their full size Locust and Hornet cars

This is one of a pair of cars I acquired direct from the manufacturer, which were originally built as show demonstrators so this is a unique opportunity to buy a car professionally built by the original manufacturer

Both cars had been stored for some time but have now been recommissioned to fully working condition. The second car is a more traditional Lotus 7 style.

This is a very impressive and striking little car at around 7 feet long and 3 feet wide

Would make a superb and unique Christmas present for any child or for a Lotus 7 or Caterham owner as a cool addition to any garage to sit alongside the real thing! A collector’s item in its own right.

BWE is no longer trading so these kits are no longer available and they very rarely come onto the market, especially in this condition and with this unique provenance.

Features:
Plywood body, clad in aluminium with GRP nose cone and wheel arches
Bright yellow and gloss black paintwork
Aluminium stone guards
Lotus nose badge
Caterham style body decals
4x alloy wheels plus matching spare mounted on the rear
Semi slick racing style tyres

Any questions or viewings welcome. We are located in Emsworth near Chichester, close to the A3/A27 junction

I’m happy to sell this worldwide but for obvious reasons it is collection only. There are plenty of suitable delivery services available through Shiply etc and I’m very happy to facilitate collection by your nominated courier and even to add some protective wrapping if required.
