An amazing, high quality, scaled down battery powered replica of the real thing! Ex factory show demo car, fully recommissioned and restored.

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

It’s a very solid, impressive and striking little car with an aluminium over plywood body with GRP nose cone and wheel arches. Size is approximately 7 feet long and 3 feet wide.

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 have been recommissioned to fully working condition. The second car is a more modern Caterham style and is advertised separately.

Would make a superb gift for any child or for a Lotus 7 or Caterham owner as a cool addition to any garage to sit alongside the real thing! Without doubt, 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. Don’t miss it!

I’m open to sensible offers close to the asking price so don’t be afraid to ask

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.
