This is a beautifully constructed 77. VM 77 was a German manufacturer of cars that were inspired by the Lotus Seven. The VM 77 was slightly wider and gave the occupants just a little more space than a Lotus. This example is equipped with the rare independent rear suspension (the front is always independent) and has lower floors so that people who are taller can also fit in well. The car is powered by rock-solid Opel technology. The C20LEH Opel Motor in this example delivers considerable power and makes the VM 77 a true rocket on wheels. The car has belonged to an enthusiast and has been built to a high standard.

The bodywork, therefore, looks neatly cared for. The paint has some very light traces of use that match the age and mileage of the car. The car stands on beautiful wheels with good tires in the correct sizes.

The interior is, as you would expect, very spartan. The car has several instruments at its disposal that clearly communicate the vital functions of the car and give a good picture of the different temperatures of the liquids present. You steer with a beautiful small steering wheel that fits perfectly in your hand and you sit in wonderful bucket seats that also have a Sparco harness.

The technique is, of course, what it’s all about with a car like this. This VM 77 is built with the best possible parts. For example, the car has the aforementioned independent wheel suspension at the rear, as well as disc brakes all around. At the time, both items were available at extra cost as options when assembling a VM 77. The power output available shows us that the engine delivers 262 hp to the wheels. The engine is equipped with a number of nice upgrades that benefit the temperature management, such as a downpipe that can better discharge the exhaust gases, a larger intercooler and a larger blow-off valve. The car is therefore a beast to drive. When the engine gets up to pressure, you have to change gear quickly so as not to end up in the rev limiter. Fortunately, this is no problem at all thanks to the fine-shifting manual transmission with five gears. The chassis and brakes have been very well maintained in recent years and all function perfectly.

The car comes with a lot of documentation, there are diagrams available, all invoices of the construction and of course the manual. In short, a beautiful and rare VM 77 in a specification that we do not often see, but which can be labelled as the only correct way to build such a car.
