A Swedish MK Indy.

The MK Indy is a Lotus 7 replica based on the Locost principle, built by MK Sportscars in Maltby, Rotherham.[1] The Indy has an independent rear suspension using the differential and drive shafts from a Ford Sierra.[2] It uses many other components from the Sierra,[3] including front hubs and steering rack. Further, it can be fitted with any of a variety of engines, the most popular choices being the Ford Pinto engine from the Sierra for its ease and cheapness or a large motorcycle engine for its light weight and high rpm.[4][5]

According to figures given to the magazine Total Kit Car 200 Indys are built a year.
