This car is one of them, hence the B from Boterman, although Caterham took over the 7 in 1974 from Lotus this car is registered as a Lotus. Donkervoort is still building these cars under his own name, but spend a lot of development in it. You don't want to know how long the restoration of this car took but I stripped it to the bare frame. Even the old gelcoat was removed.
