Having raced and maintained various sports cars since the mid-60 s I was intrigued when Superformance decided to have a go at making a Lotus Seven style car. After spending way too many weekends constantly maintaining and replacing parts on various Corvettes and Porsches, I thought a  Seven  might be a fun weekend ride as well as an occasional track day and Auto-X car. I looked at some of the offerings from other manufacturers, but after diving and taking a close look at the Superformance S-1; I was sold by the quality and attention to detail. Since I figured that I d be doing all the maintenance on the car myself, and since I wanted to know it intimately, I decided to do the engine build-up and install myself. I love the metallic orange paint and choose white-faced Smiths gauges, which contrast nicely with the carbon fiber dash. During the fall of 2003, while waiting for the chassis to be delivered, I started to built-up a 2-liter Zetec engine. The chassis was unloaded in December 2003 and I had the engine and transmission completed and installed by April 2004. The car is fast and has been completely trouble free ever since. As it turned out, this was the last S1 chassis manufactured by Superformance. Modifications include a Fidenza light alloy flywheel, Webcon Alpha Gold injection with a Performance Engineering (John Kozacik) stage -3 EPROM chip, Centerforce Dual-friction clutch, Magnecore competition ignition, Mocal thermostatic oil cooler bypass valve, and modified (short-travel) throttle linkage.
