Any Kit Cars in Switzerland
 
I hate to start a new thread for this, but couldn't find an appropriate one otherwise. Anyway, are there any kit cars in Switzerland?
It's just that I am seriously thinking of moving to Zurich and would like to drive a Lotus 7-a-like, since I currently drive one here in Ireland (Sylva Striker for the curious among you)?

It is probably worth dropping an email to these guys - zentrale.ozd-fahrzeuge@ezv.admin.ch

Their website is partly in English, but very limited. But I have found them helpful when I send them an email. You will need to find out details of importing or registering a limited production/one off car in Switzerland. It should be possible to do, because there are these funny little electric/pedal hybrid cars running around town that would not pass any form of crash test. Probably do really well on the emissions though. But these cars are manufactured in Switzerland which may make a difference.

I've seen a couple of Lotus-7 looking cars around in Zug.

Join (or just ask?) the Lotus Seven Club of Switzerland -

http://www.lsos.ch/pages/historic-register.php

I was a member a while back, good people. Run the St Moritz do every July, 150 Sevens attend, typically. Also I have run in to (so to speak!) various kit car types over the mountain passes. So yes, there are kit cars in Switzerland, lots of them.

Kind regards

update: Euro insurance for UK cars:

Not tried by me, recommended by a chap in Germany.

Requires annual return trip to UK to do MOT test.

Kind regards

The nicest kit cars I've seen in NA are from Factory Five
I wouldn't mind seeing these roll around Zurich:

Fredy Kumschick is the Swiss Caterham importer in Sch÷z/LU. He should be able to answer all your questions.

Ask Freddy to show you his race car workshop, or better still the downstairs garage where there are some rather lovely beasts...

Re: Any Kit Cars in Switzerland
 
Is anyone building new kit cars here, instead of importing one pre done in another country??? ie, just assembling one?
Is there a forum or facebook group?
