The go-kart is the Proustian madeleine cake of memory.
Clamber in, and you’re instantly transported back to those halcyon days of batting cages and mini-golf, family vacations, maybe even Whirlyball.
Think of this as the go-kart for adults.
This is a grown man’s toy.
By way of appreciation, a brief history on the open-wheel:
Case in point: watch the 620R model rip.
And before you ask, yes, this beauty is street legal.
Why you care: lightweight, practically a go-kart. Sports a 2.0-liter Ford engine. Does 0-62 in 3.4 seconds.
Or put it this way: The 2014 Porsche GT3 does 0-60 in 3.3 seconds. Starts at $130K. The Seven 480’s base price is considerably lower.
The math does itself.
So call up Turn 7 Motorsports. They’re an authorized dealer. Or you can order the kit and build it yourself.
It’s never too late for a thrill ride.
