Description

You always wanted to drive a formula racing car? With us you get what comes closest, but road legal: the Super 7, the sports car legend par excellence.

"Adding power makes you faster on the straights; subtracting weight makes you faster everywhere" Our Super 7 was designed according to this simple but effective formula.

Look at the open shock absorbers in front of you as they dance in the curves. Steer right into the apex of the corner - the suspension is like a perfect scalpel that lets the Seven draw its line. Because you're practically sitting on the rear axle, the steering feels like extending your arms.

The 2.0 litre engine has been modified in partnership with Cosworth. Yes, Cosworth, the company that built the legendary Formula 1 engines for decades. Does more racing car feeling go on the road? Hardly!

Instruction leaflet (hard, fast, hot, tight, small):

  • Hard. There is no shame in seeing a physiotherapist or booking a massage after a long journey
  • Fast. This vehicle is much too fast much too fast. 
  • Hot. The manifold and exhaust on the left, the transmission tunnel on the right and the engine on the driver's feet guarantee a hot ride. 
  • Tight: you shouldn't be too wide, a swing king won't fit in. Who lives on big feet should wear very narrow shoes. 
  • Small: the rider should measure between 165 and 185 cm

Perfect for

For the fast run to the bakery and get some buns. So fast that they're still warm when you get back.

The weekend with small luggage.

The wedding. When the bride wears a wedding dress with a removable train.

Only for pilots who have their gas foot under control.

NOT suitable for: Frivolous and irresponsible drivers who think the road is a racetrack!

Special Features

  • More radical is only possible with a formula car
  • The Seven is tough. And you should be too.
  • Compromises are not negotiable in this vehicle
  • From 80 KM/H we recommend a rider's goggle/motorbike goggle

Reviews

Unfortunately I could not enjoy Colin at all, as I am simply too tall with my 1.90m body height. So unfortunately I had to do without the ride with Colin.
Rentaclassic then provided a more than valid replacement very unbureaucratically and at short notice, so that I was able to enjoy the weekend even more than I did (Attention surreptitious advertising: Hägar is great fun).
So these 5 stars are to be understood primarily for the service of Rentaclassic. Even though I am convinced that Colin deserves the 5 stars just as much.

Super experience

Simple processing of the booking, uncomplicated pick-up (as well as the return), simply easy. When getting in, you understand why so many people are still near the car in F1. Until you have positioned yourself acrobatically and comfortably and somehow you still have to fasten your seat belt ;-).
Without any racing experience, you have to approach the car on the first kilometers and then the fun really starts. Especially when you feel what happens when the gas pedal is pressed properly ;-) So it's fun, because on mountain passes you don't have to feel pressured) by the motorcycles from behind, they just get smaller in the rear view mirror, especially after the curves ;-).

Thanks to the ''Rent a Classic Team'', it was a hot ride and a great experience. With pleasure again, maybe something wider ;-)

My wife and I enjoyed the car very much, it reacts precisely to the throttle foot and the steering is mm accurate, we drove over 4 passes and enjoyed every kilometer to the end.

Get in ... or circle your legs into it and then lower yourself deeply and even deeper ... until you reach the quite comfortable seat shortly before the asphalt level. Look to the left and then disbelievingly to the right ... something else to sit at the same eye level as the wheel of the adjacent car. To find out what is where and then the turn at the ignition lock ... ah just like that it must sound!
Then the grip to the short crisp gear lever ... search for the return gear ... (by the way, you can find it if you push the gear lever down and push it to the left and then forward) ... then slowly reset ... turn the steering wheel ... (some previous strength training doesn't hurt) ... but don't hit it too hard, a twitch on the steering wheel is enough and the Super 7 moves into the bend ... the unaccustomed wonderful view of the front wheel makes even this slow circle out an experience ... Forward gear in and slowly drive towards the intersection and stop shortly before and notice that the grass right of one in the last minutes since I stood here with my own car has grown incredibly. The view to the right ... there was a bricklayer at work and has raised this little wall to a high facade ... sitting low on the Bode, slowly feel my way out onto the road, then slowly drive off and settle into the Super 7.
A few kilometres further on, the feeling for the proximity to the ground and the direct steering found ... ahead a free distance, behind us also nobody ... take the foot a little off the accelerator ... shift into second gear ... roll slowly onto the 80 blackboard and exactly on its height down the foot ... a cheering of the driver and a broad grin from ear to ear ... look to the co-driver ... from there come somewhat different noises and wide open eyes could make you believe that someone is not quite relaxed ...
The road gets a little more curvy ... the proximity to the ground shows its advantages ... so slow down again ... look at the speedometer ... everything in the green legal area ... a small movement on the steering wheel is enough to turn the steering wheel ... curve entry ... middle curve ... the foot gets a little heavier ... look at the speedometer not forgotten ... steering wheel hides something but the display and exactly in about the 80-Display ... will still be correct ... exit of the curve and the foot a little lower ... steering wheel straight ... speedometer becomes visible again ... foot immediately higher again ... if there were no ears left and right, the corners of the driver's mouth would meet at the back of his head ... the co-driver's grin is a little more modest, if not even a little more narrow ... the wind blowing around the ears doesn't let the driver hear the co-driver's delightful words so clearly, but if he interprets it correctly, she wants even more ... at least the Super 7, not necessarily the co-driver ... the driver definitely enjoys the ride and will certainly treat himself to the Super 7 again.

Thanks to the Rent a Classic Team, as usual everything was wonderful again.
Greetings, Daniel (driver) & Yvonne (co-driver, who, how longer the ride went, also couldn't get rid of the grin)
