Buying a Kit Car

Fraser owners love driving their Lotus 7 replica sports cars, but for those of them who have helped to build their cars, that passion goes off the scale.

You can buy a Fraser Clubman or Clubman S as a kit car. But we also offer a full range of kits so you can do as much, or as little, of the build yourself. For some, fitting the engine and adding the trim is enough, others might have the time and confidence to tackle larger jobs such as the suspension and electrics.

We provide you with everything you need to build your kit car, including advice, instructions and the parts themselves. For most people, it takes around a year to build either the Clubman or Clubman S from a basic kit. If you need help deciding if a kit car is for you, or want to talk through all the different build stages and how that might fit with your lifestyle and budget, please get in touch and we can help you make some decisions.

You can buy your kit car in different stages. Here are the options:

The Basic Kit

When bought on its own, this is perfect for people that really want to experience building their car from the bare bones. It gives you a well-constructed, well-engineered platform to build on and it is fully approved by New Zealand’s authority on modified vehicles, the Low Volume Vehicle Technical Association (LVVTA).

This kit gets you started and includes such things as the powder-coated chassis, aluminium body, front and rear fibreglass guards and nose cone, roll bar, mounts for everything from the number plate to the headlights, suspension set up and five 30-minute conferences with Fraser Cars to help you through your build project. The Basic Kit allows you to do most of the work yourself and source individual parts such as the engine, suspension, cooling system etc. There are two Basic Kits available – one for the Clubman, and one for the Clubman S.

You can also combine the Basic Kit with any number of build stage kits from Fraser Cars.

Build Stage Kits

These kits give you everything you need to complete a particular section of the build. You can buy single kits when you need them or take a pick-n-mix approach and buy those that will make building your kit car easier. With almost all of these kits, you get further choices so that your Lotus 7 replica kit car has its own unique design and performance.

If you have the passion to build a kit car, please get in touch. We love helping people learn more about building cars by hand. The Fraser Car Club is also full of helpful people, all keen to support kit car builders. You can also talk to Fraser owners at events held across New Zealand. See the latest events here.
