New Zealand had a long history of small garages and vehicle enthusiasts modifying and creating sports and sports racing cars. Out of these interests grew the New Zealand kit and replica car industry with the introduction of fiber-glass car bodies in the 1950s.

The Leitch Motorsport and Restoration Ltd of Invercargill make a Lotus Seven replica called the Super Sprint. Barry Leitch started building Super Sprints in 1986 and regularly raced them competitively in local classic and sports car racing. Super Sprints were originally available as either a kit, partially built, or fully road registered, all with several specification levels.

This car has never been raced. It's in very good overall condition.

Great Sunday car to go for a blast in, whether on your own, with your partner or with a friend. It's also a great way for Dad’s to spend time with their kids.

Heaps of fun to drive in our beautiful country, in any season – a thrill going through those corners, through those mountains and for those who love competition – on the race track.

Car will be sold WOF’d and Registered.
