Footnotes

  • Robin Hood Engineering was founded in Sherwood, Nottinghamshire (where else?) by Richard Stewart in 1984 and began by making Ferrari Daytona replicas based on the Rover SD1, around 70 of which were sold. In 1989 the company launched the Robin Hood S7, a Lotus Seven-style kit car that was unusual in featuring a welded stainless steel monocoque chassis rather than the more usual tubular steel spaceframe type. Customers could opt for Triumph Dolomite, Ford Cortina or Ford Sierra donor vehicles, with the latter becoming the most popular choice. Robin Hood's policy of 'one kit + one donor vehicle = car on the road' would prove to be outstandingly successful and during 1997/97 production peaked at over 500 kits annually. In 1999 the monocoque was superseded by a tubular steel spaceframe on the Robin Hood 2B, which was made specifically for the Ford Sierra as donor vehicle, and this basic design lasted until 2007 when the current 'Zero' model was introduced. By this time the company had changed hands and is now known as Great British Sports Cars Ltd, based at Boughton near Newark, Nottinghamshire. There is also a Robin Hood owners club with some 1,000 members.
    This Robin Hood was constructed in 2005, mostly from new parts, and is powered by a 1.8-litre Ford engine. Only 1,650 miles have been covered since construction and the car comes with all MoTs confirming the mileage. Described by the private vendor as in generally very good/excellent condition, this exciting Seven 'clone' is offered with MoT to May 2012 and Swansea V5C document.
