Welcome to the build diary for my MNR Vortx kit.   The Vortx is based, like many kits on the Lotus Seven designed by Colin Chapman back in the 60s. This updated design is from Mark Norden Racing (MNR) and has a really nice take on the original.

As a previous owner of two alternative Seven versions, a Tiger R6 (Zetec) and a Westfield FW Sport (Duratec) this build is a fresh challenge, not least as I have chosen to go a different route and build it around a Honda CBR1000 RR Fireblade engine.

This will make the car much lighter ( approx. 450kg) and hopefully even more fun than my previous cars.
