Description

Evidently based on a Lotus Seven circa the 1960s, the Locust can be described as as a compact, open top roadster tailored more for raw performance than comfort or luxury. The car may also be available with two additional body colour styles: One with a running stripe at the front end, and another with a differently coloured nose.

Trivia

  • Interestingly, there also exists a similarly name Locust, a kit car derivative of the Lotus Seven, as well as the Locost, a low-cost variant of the Lotus Seven.
