The Westfield XI (or Westfield Eleven) is a replica of the Lotus Eleven.
In 1982, Westfield Sportscars, faced with the popularity of the original Lotus XI, began production of a fiberglass replica available in finished car or kit.
Originally called Westfield Sports, factory-finished cars are typically equipped with an upgraded 1225cc BMC Series A engine.
The majority of Westfield XI is sold as a kit. Without an engine, the XI is basically designed to accept the 1275 cc Series A of a Midget MG or Austin-Healey Sprite donor.
Over the years, owners build a wide variety of engines, including Climax from Coventry, Lotus and Alfa Romeo, although the assembly is limited by the small size of the engine compartment.
The kit uses other components of a Sprite or Midget donor such as the rear axle (modified by Westfield), the gearbox, the drive shaft, the front upright / brake assembly, the radiator, the wheels / tires, steering, cables and gauges.
In 1986, finished production of Westfield XI ceases although the company continues to offer kits until 1988.
In 2004, Westfield resumes production still using the A-series engine.
The model is a Westfield XI, therefore, a replica of the Lotus Eleven released in June 1985.
