2021 Wells Motor Cars Vertige

Wells Motor Cars wants to revive the lightweight British sports cars of old with the Vertige

The Lotus Elise is gone, but the Wells Vertige looks like it can fill the void quite well

A steel monocoque and tubular sub-frames are at the base of the Vertige, which weighs 1,653.5 lbs

There's also a steel roll-cage, which contrbutes to a 47,000 NM/deg chassis rigidity

A mid-mounted 2.0-liter N/A Ford unit produces 208 hp and 155 lb-ft

There's also a six-speed close-ratio manual gearbox, which contributes to the 4.8-second sprint to 60 mph and a 140 mph top speed

The driving dynamics are further enhanced by double wishbones and coil-overs

17-inch Speedline rims wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4 rubber hide the 280-mm brake discs

The exterior features many classic design elements, as well as butterfly doors

Only a small section of the window opens, just like on a McLaren F1

Vertige's interior is driver-centric and has a neat classic vibe to it

The Sony multimedia unit is the only hint of modernism inside

The Vertige aims to be not only a modern take on the classic British sports car, but also usable

The first seven cars will be ready by 2022 and a production run of 25 cars per year has been planned

The price? £40,000 ($55,131)
