Does anyone recognise or know of this car?

It isn't at the usual, known locations, but there are plenty of owners in the area.

(Asking for a friend, because I have two cars already and that is enough for me)

Gary, your not comparing like with like. The first car is one of the 30 limited edition 1.4/ 6 speed run out models, the other is a fairly standard 1.6 with 5 speed. The 1.4/6 speed/ big brakes / Roadsports is reputedly one of the best 7s made for power/ handling. Slits price is fair for a dealer IMHO.

Interestingly GP Sevens advertised it for £15,495 back in 2019.

Tad pricey even for one of the thirty run out models. Seems to be covid inflation!

I'd avoid Targa Florio if possible, not the best dealer.

Loved my Road-Sport, they are a cracking car IMO. That one does seem a little steep price wise, I got just over £9000 for mine in part ex at Caterham, though it was nearly 10 years ago.

You will never get what the car is worth on a Part X.  The dealer will make the killing !

The 1.4 Supersport is quite a sort after little car, especially in good order.

My last car was a 1400 Supersport which I subsequently did an engine swap to 1800 before changing for my current car, an SLR. If I was changing again I'd try to find an original 1400SS with 6 speed box, they epitomise what the 7 is about.

I think if I’m correct, the six speed box was produced for the 1.4 Supersport set up !

Great combination.
