Some cars just aren’t afraid of any road that comes into view.
The Seven 420 is one of those cars. A 210bhp wielding gladiator ready to take on any highway one-on-one, the Seven 420 delivers huge dollops of torque, backed up by a high-revving, dry-sumped engine that makes it a wild, but intensely visceral ride.
Meanwhile, as the driver, you don’t need to be Ben Hur to tame this beast – the intuitive driving characteristics of the Seven mean this is one lion that can just as easily be a pussy cat at more sensible speeds.
The 420 is available in both the standard 'S3' or wide-bodied 'SV' chassis. The standard S3 chassis offers the compact lightweight dimensions that have made the Seven a legend in its 50 year history.
The SV chassis provides increased interior and luggage space due to the greater width and length of the car, making it suited for extended touring or for customers over 6'2" in height. The SV chassis also benefits from the additional stability offered by wide-track front suspension and increased range from a larger fuel tank, with only a 25kg weight penalty over the standard chassis.
