440kg Caterham 7

Going on a diet should work so well for people. Lightest weight and least expensive to boot.

That's insane, I'd love one. With a weight that low and and an engine that size, I bet you'd easily get 50-60 MPG if you wanted too. One thing I'm going to miss when I get an EV is the sheer lightness and agility of a low weight high powered ICE. Ah well, had a good run I suppose...

Back in the '60s, my lecturer at the Nautical College had an original Lotus Super Seven. He took me for a spin in it and it was phenomenal, The latest incarnation must be unbelievable.

The lightest car I ever had was 619 kg (1364 lbs) but that had just 26 hp. It was still capable of 72 MPH, as terrifying as it was.
